Fantagraphics will publish comics in digital format

NewImageGood news: Fantagraphics, the world's greatest comic book publisher, is going to start selling digital comic books.
Fantagraphics Books and comiXology have immediately made available the first four issues of the Hernandez Brothers’ phenomenal Love and Rockets: New Stories. Groth also announced that following Comic-Con, comiXology will debut Love and Rockets: New Stories #5 on the same day as the print release is available in comic book stores this September. Subsequently, Fantagraphics will begin to release certain titles from their extensive front list and back catalogue across the entire comiXology platform.

Fantagraphics and comiXology Announce Digital Distribution Agreement


  1. This might be a good time to ask, anyone know when DC/Wildstorm’s exclusive with Kindle Fire ends? There is stuff (like the trades of Transmetropolitan, Planetary, Authority) that they licensed to Amazon for the Kindle Fire store only…which is US only. And I dont have or reside that thing or in that place.

    It’s like the want the rest of the world to torrent.

  2. DC’s exclusivity is partly over.  On the Nook Tablet, I can download Planetary right now.  I don’t see Transmet or the Authority, though I do see Fables.  I just purchased Unwritten volumes 1 and 2 a week ago (but sadly, don’t see volumes 3-5).

  3. I know I’m in the ever-dwindling-minority here, but I have no interest in looking at Jamie Hernandez’ beautiful artwork via a lit-up screen forcing me to scroll and zoom around his masterfully-balanced page while appreciating how all those square pixels come together to give the appearance of a fluid, hand-drawn curve as only Jamie can do.

    On the plus side, in 30 years, when everyone is starving to hold something physical in their hands again, my collection of comics and albums will pay my bills the way social security won’t be doing.

    1. Provided your collection isn’t made up mostly of 1990’s X-Men, that is.

      (BTW, Jaime, not Jamie.)
