Madefire and Dark Horse have announced that Hellboy will be coming to the Motion Book service, starting with the current Hellboy in Hell series.
This comes as the latest approach from Dark Horse, who have been pursuing a noticeably different digital tactic from all the other major comics publishers. Eschewing ComiXology for their own Dark Horse Digital, this new move is being promoted as being part of a high-end digital reading product – in essence, that Madefire will provide a high-quality digital read.
This also means Dark Horse join a growing list of companies to put their comics through Madefire, including Top Cow, IDW, and Boom Studios. The first ‘episode’ of Hellboy in Hell is up on the Madefire website now.
