ComicMix and IDW on the iPhone and iTouch
We are proud to announce that our publishing partner IDW has launched new iPhone apps that will allow it to sell digital comics in dedicated storefronts; one for all IDW and ComicMix titles, and others specifically for Transformers, Star Trek, and G.I. Joe comics. Each app is free, and comes with different free comics. Consumers can then buy other IDW titles from within the apps.
ComicMix titles currently available are:
- GrimJack: Old Friends (available for free)
- GrimJack: Killer Instinct #1-6 (issue #1 available for free)
- GrimJack: The Manx Cat #1-2
- Jon Sable Freelance: Bloodtrail #1-6 (issue #1 available for free)
We’ll be adding more in the future, of course. The app also has everything from Astro Boy and Bloom County to The Rocketeer and Tank Girl.
IDW is the first comic publisher to offer in-app purchases (although several third party companies, including Comixology, Panelfly, and iVerse, all offer in-app purchases of the titles they offer).
So please, download the free app and try it out, and post any and all feedback here in comments. We want to know what you think, and how we can keep improving what we’re doing.
