Amazon's ComiXology Aims to Rekindle Digital Comics Market with 'Unlimited' Plan
If you like binge-watching comics themed TV shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead or Wynonna Earp through subscription-based video services, there’s now a comparable way to get up to speed on the comics themselves without spending a fortune on single issues or graphic novels. ComiXology, the digital comics platform that Amazon acquired in 2014, announced today that it is launching a service called comiXology Unlimited that provides access to thousands of titles from nearly a dozen comics publishers for a single monthly rate of $5.99.
The company announced that comics from publishers including Image, Dark Horse, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, Kodansha Comics, Oni Press, Valiant Entertainment, Archie Comics, Fantagraphics Books, Humanoids, Action Lab Entertainment, Aspen Comics, Zenescope Entertainment and more will be part of the initial launch. ComiXology is the exclusive subscription platform for Image and Dark Horse, two top-5 US publishers in terms of market share.
