Dynamite Entertainment Signs with Comisfix


Dynamite is always looking for new avenues of getting their books in front of as many readers as possible. If that means teaming up with a company like Comisfix to bring their library to readers via subscription basis, then so be it. Comicsfix gives readers access to unlimited quality comic book titles and graphic novels for all ages at a low monthly price. Dynamite's library of popular titles currently available on Comicsfix includes: the first two volumes of The Boys by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson; Legends of Red Sonja with Gail Simone; Project Superpowers, featuring covers by Alex Ross; The Blood Queen; Pathfinder, based on the best-selling Paizo RPG; the Bob's Burgers comic book based on the Emmy award-winning television program; Mark Waid's The Green Hornet; Zorro; Vampirella Strikes; the first volume of Evil Ernie; Battlestar Galactica; The Twilight Zone; and the all-ages Lil' Dynamites series by Art Baltazar and Franco. More Dynamite single issues and full series will be added every week. The steady flow of comic book additions will support Comicsfix's ongoing efforts to promote the latest way to read digital comics to new and returning readers alike.

"Dynamite Entertainment partnering with Comicsfix not only validates all the hard work we've done this last year, but also our belief that the subscription model that works for the film and music industries can be successfully translated to the comic book industry as well," said Comicsfix's CEO Felix Kiner. "For Dynamite to take a chance on a new way to deliver comics to readers is a testament of their incredible innovative spirit. Today we have great books from fantastic indie publishers; adding a company of this size with such an amazing history of quality titles is a dream come true for us. I cannot wait for the moment our readers will see Red Sonja, The Boys, Bob's Burgers, Battlestar Galactica, and much more on their Comicsfix app."

"Comicsfix is an innovator in the realm of digital comics, and a welcome partner to Dynamite," says Keith Davidsen, Marketing Manager of Dynamite Entertainment. "The good folks at Comicsfix apply technology that's familiar to millions of internet viewers to comic books, making the digital reading experience as enjoyable, affordable, and extensive as what you might find for television and movie viewing. The Comicsfix platform will introduce subscribers to hundreds of Dynamite comic books, and -- as our industry has seen time and again as digital comics have developed -- the increased exposure yields greater success in print sales for our brick-and-mortar retail partners, as well. We look forward to growing our library with ComicsFix, for the benefit of all."
