Comixology Debuts Exclusive Original Line of Comics
Comixology followed in the footsteps of its corporate parent on Tuesday when it announced a Comixology Originals, its line of exclusive digital-only comics for the Kindle and Comixology.
The Amazon subsidiary has cut deals with leading comic book publishers like Boom Studios and Valiant and with the estate of the legendary Harvey Kurtzman for exclusive distribution rights.
“Our mission is to make everyone on the face of the planet a comic fan, and with comiXology Originals we’re excited to offer a range of content by diverse creators,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “It’s fantastic to be working with publishers across the spectrum to deliver great comics to comiXology and Kindle, offering fans stories that they can’t get anywhere else.”
Debut titles include an Adventure Time tie-in, an X-O Manowar prequel set in his high school days and titled Valiant High, and a graphic novelization of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
All 3 titles are up for pre-order today on Comixology and Kindle, and are due to be published next January and October.
