Amazon just snagged the biggest comics resource on the web. Today the online retailer announced that it's purchased Comixology, the digital storefront for all things comic and graphic novel. No terms were disclosed, but now they're totally superfriends.
Comixology—the digital comics storefront that pushes hundreds of thousands of comics to millions of readers all over the world—just informed users that they suffered a security breach. Okay, True Believers, you should know the drill by now: time to pick a new password.
In what might seem a wee bit familiar to fans of a certain city-building video game, the folks at ComiXology have had to apologize for offering a product that their servers can't handle. Two days after the leading digital seller of comics announced a short-time offer for 700 free, downloadable first issues of Marvel…
Between now and 11pm ET on Tuesday, March 12, you can download some 700 first issues from Marvel Comics for free.
Wednesday = new comic books here in the United States of America. Many new comics are junk. Let me tell you about a few ones that are not, some of which are even about video games.
The selection of video game comics this week is thin, but a couple of major stories launch in the world of super-hero comics, one of the best graphic novelists in the world releases his first book in over a decade, and the iPad gets probably its best release of recent classics ever. This is a good comics week!
Do you like comics about video games? I sure hope so, because there are a lot of new ones this week, and not many interesting new comics that aren't about games.
Game Developers Conference blocked me from recommending comics to you last week, but nothing stands in my way this time.
My weekly comics round-up returns, though the list of promising new releases is short this time. A fitting disappointment, perhaps, in a week marred by the sad news of the sudden passing of superb comics writer Dwayne McDuffie, whose Milestone books were among my favorite comics reads of the 90s.
My weekly round-up of comics returns. Today's installment features more comics than ever, including one starring Silver The Hedgehog. Perfect!
My weekly round-up of comics returns for the new-look Kotaku. There are new comics every Wednesday in American shops and — legally! — for download. Some are about video games. Some are good. (That's a joke, sort of.)
I primarily use my iPad for video games, but I realized recently that it could be perfect for reading comics, something I enjoy doing. But then I tried to buy some.
The electronic comic book movement gains momentum today, as Batman and Superman publisher DC Comics finally goers digital, offering downloadable comics for the iPad, iPhone, and Sony PSP.
While the iPad presents a functional but far from optimal gaming experience, gaming isn't why I wanted Apple's latest big thing. For comic book fans, the iPad is the new frontier.
