Madefire’s made another content acquisition. They have announced that Dark Horse graphic novels are joining the digital platform. With DC, Image and Marvel digital tpbs all getting added recently, Madefire’s getting to have a fairly comprehensive set of publishers and material. The glaring holes would seem to be Marvel’s single issues (still exclusive to the Comixology/Amazon industrial complex) and Dark Horse single issues, which could theoretically be on the way.
Official PR follows, complete with British spellings:
Madefire, the award-winning standard in digital comics and innovator of the proprietary Motion Book™ format, announced that it will be bringing a range of best-selling Dark Horse graphic novels to the Madefire platform starting today.
