Comixology Announces Deal With Hold-Out Dark Horse


Here's the press release from Comixology about their now working with Dark Horse, a longtime holdout in terms of doing their primary digital work themselves. This is for collections, graphic novels and manga -- stuff with a spine -- and seems to have worked through the digital supplier's position as the digital comics of Amazon, which includes Kindle.


I'm told this was fairly spoiled by a recent ad campaign's visual signifiers, but it's new to me! This is the significant direct market player that as of yet wasn't with the digital company, so it's a big deal in a kind of foundational way. For customers, I imagine it means more. I don't know what the deal is yet with previous customers and what transfers, so I'm going to play catch on that and report back to you later.
