Amazon/Comixology is the big guns when it comes to digital comics. They've got a lot of diversity available to readers, including everything from Marvel and DC to smaller, creator-owned works. Black Mask Studios falls somewhere in the middle of that spectrum and now they'll be bringing their books to the platform as well. Those books include We Can Never Go Home, Godkiller, Space Riders, Ballistic and The Disciples as well as the brand new Young Terrorists and the much anticipated Sinatoro by Grant Morrison and Vanesa del Rey.
“Black Mask’s reason for existing is to connect visionary, fearless creators with smart, discerning, curious readers, and no one is building opportunities for those connections on the scale that comiXology and Kindle are,” said Matt Pizzolo, co-founder of Black Mask Studios. “Comics have the power to touch the hearts and minds of millions of readers… by building bridges to new audiences, the teams at comiXology and Kindle are bringing these stories to new and diverse readers who might otherwise have missed them.”
Today’s launch of Black Mask sees hits like Matt Pizzolo and Amancay Nahuelpan’s Young Terrorists, We Can Never Go Home, Darick Robertson and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Ballistic, Transference, Steve Niles and Christopher Mitten's The Disciples and Space Riders now available on comiXology and the Kindle Store. Moving forward Black Mask releases will also be available same day as print for upcoming titles. New releases will also include Grant Morrison and Vanesa del Rey’s Sinatoro, Holly Interlandi and Zoe Chevat’s Last Song, Matthew Rosenberg, Vita Ayala and Yasmin Liang’s Our Work Fills The Pews and Tony Patrick and Ayhan Hayrula’s X’ed.
