Dark Horse have announced today that Dynamite Comics have signed a deal to make their comics available through the Dark Horse Digital Comics store. Thirty Dynamite Comics have been made available as of today, and future releases will be made available through the store as well, day/date digital.
Dark Horse are certainly the biggest American comics company to completely avoid ComiXology, and provide instead a service which allows readers to buy their comics directly. This deal with Dynamite marks a move which will seemingly expand their reach as a comics provider, and marks a big, shrewd move for the company as digital comics start to take more of a hold. And it’s good news for Dynamite as well, as Nick Barrucci, Dynamite’s CEO, expands on further via press release:
We’re proud to add Dark Horse Digital to our retail partners selling our digital titles to their audience. Our wide range of titles, from Vampirella to Battlestar Galactica, Grimm, The Shadow, Red Sonja, and many of our other Dynamite titles, are a perfect fit for the large audience who purchase Dark Horse titles. We’re thrilled to work with Mike and his team at Dark Horse Digital on this new endeavor and excited about new opportunities to come,
Dark Horse have also made fifty of their own comics available through the service for free, for 48 hours until 9am on Friday. There are also a number of limited-time discounts being made, worth having a look at.
