Marvel Signs Digital Comics Deal With comiXology

Marvel has inked a deal with digital comics platform comiXology, giving them the exclusive right to distribute single issue English-language digital comics for the publisher worldwide.

The new partnership will introduce the online store front Marvel Comics Shop, which comiXology will power. Here is more about the shop from Marvel.com:

First, there was Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited in 2007. Then, the Marvel Comics app was launched on iPhones and iPads in 2010. Now, welcome to a bold new era in digital comics as Marvel is proud to announce the launch of the new digital comics store on Marvel.com. For the first time ever, you can now purchase Marvel’s digital comics and collections on marvel.com and read them anytime, anywhere, including on the Marvel Comics app for iOS or Android devices.

Readers will have continued access to Marvel’s comics that they have already purchased, through apps (including apps for iOS, Android and the Kindle Fire), as well as on comixology.com.
