Dynamite to Publish their Comics through Dark Horse Digital

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 GalacticaGrimmThe ShadowRed 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.

    Zero interest in the Dynamite comics and the 50 free Dark Horse comics are the same one’s they’ve already been offering for free for MONTHS.

  2. “…the 50 free Dark Horse comics are the same one’s they’ve already been offering for free for MONTHS.”

    Some are, most are not. I grabbed about 30 of them. I was excited to see the first issues of THE BLACK BEETLE and GHOST for free right now. That’s a first, and I’ve meant to give those a look.

    Protip: sell on the same platform as the two industry leaders (re: Comixology) to get MOAR SALEZ.

  4. Dynamite comics are great, of course;
    I thnk they are a good fit with Dark Horse.

  5. Michael Kindt says:

    I hope this has no impact on the Dynamite books on ComiXology. I love a lot of Dark Horse comics, but until they start offering HD comics, like ComiXology, I would much rather read everything I can from the ComiXology app.

  6. “Protip: sell on the same platform as the two industry leaders (re: Comixology) to get MOAR SALEZ.”

    Dynamite already sells their titles on Comixology and iVerse Comics Plus.

    Nick Barrucci is way smarter than that.

  8. Hold on. I may be mistaken, or something might have changed since I was paying attention, but isn’t the Dark Horse app just a dressed-up version of the iVerse platform? Dark Horse is becoming a middleman for the middleman? I don’t get it.

  9. Steve Horton says:

    Nope. Dark Horse’s app has always been independently created by Dark Horse themselves.

  10. “I may be mistaken, or something might have changed since I was paying attention, but isn’t the Dark Horse app just a dressed-up version of the iVerse platform?”

    You may be thinking about Archie Comics app, not Dark Horse.

    Nick Barrucci smart? He wouldn’t know a good comic book series if it bit him in his fat ass. He lives off tie-ins. How smart do you have to be to do that?
