Dark Horse just announced that they’re setting up digital comics downloads with exclusive downloads available in comic stores.
These kinds of store exclusives were a hot topic at yesterday’s comics and digital conference. They are already available for video games, and bringing them into the comics sphere is a pretty big move. Dark Horse will have more info at their 5:45 panel today.
