Even as Comixology has become the biggest digital comics distributor in the world, some few hold outs remain; Dark Horse goes through their own app and web store, with only a lone placeholder on Comixology’s web store.
Dark Horse just announced they’re placing their GNs on the Kindle however, joining their apps on Android, Nook and Kobo. (You may have noticed the Dark Horse offerings on the recent Kobo comics sale which was running here and at other websites.) Unlike DC’s recent move to put periodicals on these platforms, so far it’s only collections however. But give ’em time.
Dark Horse announced today that the company has expanded to one of the most popular digital platforms on which comics fans can now access their favorite Dark Horse titles! Hot on the heels of the release of the company’s Android app, and following up its incredible success with Kobo and Nook, Dark Horse is proud to announce their titles are available on Amazon’s Kindle, and able to be purchased in the Kindle Store (www.amazon.com/kindlestore).
Dark Horse digital graphic novels are now available for purchase in the Kindle Store, with over 100 of the company’s top titles featured, like Mass Effect, Hellboy, Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Sin City, and more! Additionally, Dark Horse will be offering dozens of its prose titles including Vampire Hunter D, Hellboy, Yahtzee Coshaw’s new book Jam, and more!
“I’m very excited about Dark Horse graphic novels coming to the Kindle” said Mark Bernardi, Dark Horse’s Director of Digital Publishing. “Not only does it give fans another way to enjoy their favorite Dark Horse titles, it is going to introduce our amazing catalog to a whole new audience.”
Starting today, the world’s Dark Horse graphic novels arrive on Kindle. Look for more and more titles to be added every month!
