Bundled Extra: Koyama Press And comiXology Announce Deal Over Small Press Expo (SPX) Weekend

Koyama Press announced a multiple-title entry into the comiXology platform over Small Press Expo weekend. The well-regarded alt-comics publisher would seem a key partnership acquisition for the digital comics arm of the Amazon empire, whose market emphasis has been more varied than the average DM profile but is still a work in progress. For Koyama it gives fans of that group's work to sample and buy in digital form.

Quote work provided to the press:

David Steinberger, comiXology CEO: "ComiXology's mission is to make everyone on the planet a comics fan and that means making sure we have the most diverse selection of sequential art content anywhere -- which is why is so important to be adding the great titles from Koyama Press to the mix today. From Julia Wertz to John Martz, Koyama Press' catalog is a goldmine of cutting edge comic content that has few peers. Annie Koyama is one of the leading lights in the small press movement and we are such big fans of what she's doing, we couldn't be happier to expand the audience for Koyama Press across comiXology and Kindle."

Annie Koyama, founder and Publisher of Koyama Press: "As our mandate at Koyama Press is to promote and support a wide range of emerging to established artists, this is a natural next step to having the books be available in the widest manner possible. We look forward to introducing our artists to new readers via comiXology and Kindle."

The initial run of titles offered will be:

* The Big Team Society League Book of Answers, Team Society League
* Blobby Boys Vol. 1-2, Alex Schubert
* Cat Dad, King of the Goblins, Britt Wilson
* A Cat Named Tim and Other Stories, John Martz
* Comics Class, Matthew Forsythe
* Drinking at the Movies, Julia Wertz
* Fata Morgana, Jon Vermilyea
* The Infinite Wait and Other Stories, Julia Wertz
* Monster Party, Chris 'Elio" Eliopoulos
* S.F. #3, Ryan Cecil Smith
* Turtle Needs Work, Steve Wolfhard

I liked most of these comics, and it's interesting to see the Ryan Cecil Smith work offered.
