It begins.

We’ve been hearing a ton o’ rumors about comics companies jumping aboard iVerse—probably the second largest dedicated digital comics platform—in the wake of Amazon’s acquisition of Comixology. While Amazon is great at selling books, publishers want to avoid a Hachette-like stand off and other weight throng maneuvers that Amazon is known for. While it’s not clear if iVerse and its ComicsPLus app have the infrastructure standing by to take on a big company, it’s an option…and a good one.

And so, Valiant has just announced that they are bringing their complete library—past and present—to iVerse and ComicsPlus. Titles offered include X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Rai, etc. The first issues of the current titles are now available for free just to get you going. The deal runs throughout the month of August.

“Valiant has been consistently producing some of the best comics in the industry since their relaunch in 2012,” said iVerse Media founder and CEO Michael Murphey. “We could not be more proud to make their remarkable catalog and amazing characters available in ComicsPlus.”

In addition to the ComicsPlus app and website, Valiant’s titles will be made available to librarians and their patrons everywhere via the ComicsPlus: Library Edition app, which makes thousands of high-quality titles accessible to school and library patrons on any device, anywhere, and at any time.

“Valiant’s number one priority is to make our characters and content available to the largest audience possible, and, via our new partnership with iVerse, we have an incredibly exciting and important new channel to continue that mission,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “With a potential readership that’s measured in the millions, we hope to win over even more fans to some of the most critically acclaimed comic books being produced anywhere today, just as we have month in and month out in comic book stores around the world.”


I expect this to be just the first of many ongoing iVerse announcements.

  1. “While it’s not clear if iVerse and its ComicsPlus app have the infrastructure standing by to take on a big company,”

    Judging from the error messages I get just trying to access their web site, that’s a very good question.

  2. Charlie Dean says:

    Are publishers finally getting paid now?
