DARK HORSE DIGITAL COMICS CATALOG GOES GLOBAL
More than 1,000 Dark Horse monthly comics are now available on Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Comixology, and Google Play, including Fight Club 2, Hellboy, and more
New York, NY/Portland, OR—Dark Horse Comics, the leader in independent entertainment publishing, announced the expansion of its monthly single-issue comics catalog across five new platforms, making Dark Horse the most widely distributed comics publisher digitally.
“We’re very pleased to offer our line of single-issue comics digitally to fans across the world,” remarked Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson. “Dark Horse Digital has been at the forefront of the digital-comics movement through our own app-development team as well as our digital storefront, but now our growing relationship with our digital-publishing partners expands the choices for our readers to choose the platform and format they like best.”
All your favorite Dark Horse comic books, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Halo, Aliens, and more, are now available on your favorite digital platform the same day the print versions hit comic shops.
“We are very excited to be on these new platforms,” said Mark Bernardi, Dark Horse director of digital publishing. “Now, along with the Dark Horse Digital website and apps, there will be several other places for fans to get their digital comics the same day that print versions hit stores. We think this expanded distribution will be a boon to Dark Horse fans as well as the creators and licensors we partner with to create the amazing comics we publish each week.”
In 2011, the company celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in style, with the launch of an all-new proprietary digital-comics app, boasting thousands of titles for download through both the iTunes store and the Dark Horse Digital storefront at Digital.DarkHorse.com.
Just under a year after the launch of Dark Horse’s digital initiative, the company expanded the number of platforms on which comics fans can access their favorite Dark Horse graphic novels. Stemming from a successful partnership with Apple’s iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble’s NOOK, Dark Horse announced a partnership with Google Play. In June 2015, Dark Horse Comics launched their graphic novel catalog on Comixology.
