Comixology and Avatar Press have announced a new distribution partnership covering single issue digital comics. Over 50 comics have gone live, and 30 of them are available on every platform. Meanwhile, 20 of the comics are dubbed too extreme for mobile and you will only be able to buy and read them on your PC.
The Avatar Press titles available today across comiXology’s entire platform include Max Brooks’ Extinction Parade, Jonathan Hickman’s God Is Dead, Kieron Gillen’s Uber, and multiple titles from Warren Ellis including Black Summer, No Hero and Supergod.
“It’s well known that publisher William Christensen – with his singular vision – developed Avatar Press as a place for great creators to tell no-holds-barred stories to a devoted base of fans,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We’re excited to bring William’s unique publishing vision to the world through comiXology’s entire platform, and deliver Avatar’s more challenging content to a global audience of fans through comiXology.com.”
“It’s great to join forces with comiXology to bring Avatar’s editorial to an entirely new customer base – whether it’s those fans that haven’t been able to find our titles in print or those who simply haven’t been exposed to Avatar’s uncensored catalog,” said Avatar Press Publisher William Christensen. “We look forward to developing a relationship with the digital consumer who will now be able to discover, read, and enjoy Avatar Press titles in comiXology’s ground breaking Guided View.”
