Comixology has been in the digital comic business since 2007 and the company has a vast library of over 50,000 titles. They recently launched an Unlimited service, where you can read as many comics as you want for a low-monthly fee. Today, Comixology has announced that they are developing their own original content.
The Originals line will bring exclusive content to Comixology and Kindle. Creators ranging from Mariko Tamaki and David Lafuente to Harvey Kurtzman and Fabio Moon are involved in the first wave of titles.
“Our mission is to make everyone on the face of the planet a comic fan, and with ComiXology Originals we’re excited to offer a range of content by diverse creators,” ComiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger said in a statement accompanying the launch announcement. “It’s fantastic to be working with publishers across the spectrum to deliver great comics to comiXology and Kindle, offering fans stories that they can’t get anywhere else.”
Pre-orders for all three titles are available now and they should be delivered to your Kindle e-Reader or via Comixology’s fleet of apps in early 2017.
