If you’ve been craving more amazing Euro-comix in your life. Comixology just made that dream come true. Europe Comics, the collective of French language publishers, and the much-under appreciated Cinebooks, are debuting today on the Comixology platform. You can see the lineup below and there’s some gold in there, both classic and contemporary, from Spirou to The Survivors to XIII.
Europe Comics and Cinebook will make their comiXology debut today with a new distribution agreement to sell English translations of noted bandes dessinées (BD) on comiXology. Customers will be able to purchase over 45 titles today available digitally for the first time in English on comiXology. Noted titles include longtime fan favorites like XIII, Largo Winch, Lucky Luke, Thorgal and Valerian.
“French comics have been making major inroads with U.S fans for the last years at a rate never seen before. With both Europe Comics and Cinebooks, it’s wonderful to see the catalog of amazing English language BD grow at such a phenomenal pace,” said comiXology’s Senior Director of Communication, Chip Mosher. “Thanks to this deal, the “French Invasion” of the comics on comiXology continues.”
