Kevin Doel On Various ComiXology-Related News
posted October 1, 2009

I just discovered your blog and wanted to get in touch. I recently started handling the PR work for comiXology and want to stay in touch with all the bloggers who love and blog about comic books. Please let me know if you ever have any questions about what the company is doing and I'll do my best to be a good resource for you and get you a timely response.

So here's today's news!

comiXology has released its first major update to its Comics app for iPhone. One of the most significant new features is push notification, so you can automatically be notified anytime your favorite comic book series has an update. You can also post to Twitter right from the app, see all the comics you've purchased (whether they are currently downloaded or not) and manage your entire collection directly from your library.

Here's the iTunes App Store link:

Some other exciting news that I just learned and wanted to pass along immediately is that Boom! Studios will begin distribution on the Comics platform for iPhone starting this Thursday, with the first 4 issues of Irredeemable available at $0.99.

Let me know if you have any questions.
