Following Marvel Comics, DC Comics and Scott Pilgrim, Image Comics have teamed with ComiXology to launch an iPhone/iPad app for their titles, including Savage Dragon, Youngblood, John Layman’s wonderful Chew and Robert Kirkman and Todd MacFarlane’s Haunt (Kirkman’s The Walking Dead has been available through ComiXology’s own app for some time). Publisher Eric Stephenson said in a press release,
With the launch of the Image Comics app, we have an opportunity to provide our creators with the digital support that, for many of them, was unattainable before. ComiXology has established a very impressive track record of bringing independent content into the digital world. Today represents a milestone in our growth as a company and enables us to increase the availability of the fantastic titles we publish.
In addition to individual issues at $1.99, the free app will also offer free content such as sample issues of existing series and previews of upcoming releases.
