Marvel goes digital

Marvel Comics is on a roll. After their “Avengers” made box office history, they rolled out this week an exclusive digital comics partnership with ComiXology, an online comic distribution powerhouse. This means that thousands of Marvel comics past issues will be powered and distributed by ComiXology’s platforms and on their own Marvel application and online store. By June 2012, every US$3.99 issue of a Marvel comic will be available in digital form. The first quarter of the year already saw a 450% increase in sales of digital comics, according to David Steinberger, CEO of ComiXology.
