Top Cow and Shadowline join forces with Image Comics to offer the best in digital comics
The Image Comics app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch offers comics fans unprecedented access to the best comics on the market, and Top Cow and Shadowline have joined forces with Image Comics to make sure the Image digital catalog is unsurpassed.
Included in the Image Comics digital catalog, you’ll find the biggest titles from Top Cow and Shadowline. Whether you’re looking for WITCHBLADE, THE DARKNESS, MAGDALENA, ARTIFACTS, BOMB QUEEN, MORNING GLORIES, or Shadowline’s titles for children, you’ll be able to get most Top Cow and Shadowline titles from comiXology. A few first issues are free, and regular issues are typically priced for $1.99.
“comiXology has quickly proven to be the leader in the digital comic space,” says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “It makes sense for Top Cow to be part of the Image app, so when Eric Stephenson suggested it, we agreed and folded our own efforts under the overall banner.”
Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino adds, “comiXology is leading the way in finding a new audience for comics with digital presentation, and I’m proud to have Shadowline’s catalog hosted by them.”
The Image Comics app is now available for free download from the iTunes App Store and features titles from Top Cow, Shadowline, Todd McFarlane Productions, Skybound, and Image Comics. In addition to individual issues for ongoing series, which are priced for $1.99, the app also provides issues of several popular Image titles, sneak peeks of upcoming titles, and other exclusive content for free.
Its great to see another publisher getting on board – the more content the better!
