The graphic novel adaptation of Hugh Howey’s WOOL is now available in a serialized digital format via comiXology and Amazon.com. The adaptation, by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Jimmy Broxton, will be serialized in six parts for digital platforms. It’s one of the first offerings from Jet City, Amazon’s own in-house graphic novel arm. As a fan of the team, I have to say it looks good.
Single issues in the six-issue run will release every two weeks and sell for $2.99 on comiXology. The entire comics run will also sell for $4.99 as a Kindle Serial on Amazon.com, with new issues delivering automatically to customers on the same release dates, and as a $4.99 bundle on comiXology once all six issues are released. The print edition of the collected graphic novel will be available on Amazon.com and at other retailers in late August.
Howey’s dark, dystopian novel Wool (the first novel in the Silo Saga trilogy) was a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle best seller and is one of the most-reviewed science fiction novels ever on Amazon, with over 8,000 customer reviews.
See? Amazon does cool things too!
