Amazon Acquires ComiXology

by Conner Flynn

Founded in 2007, ComiXology has become a large part of the geek lifestyle and a major player in the comic book world. If you are a comic fans, it is part of your weekly reading. Now ComiXology is being acquired by Amazon.

The news has been largely positively received by users of the app. Amazon should certainly help this platform grow. Not everyone is happy though. Some people don’t like Amazon’s policies. However, those people need to take a deep breath. It just went down, so lets wait and see what happens.

Press release:

ComiXology’s mission is to spread the love of comics and graphic novels in all forms,” said David Steinberger, co-founder and CEO of comiXology. “There is no better home for comiXology than Amazon to see this vision through. Working together, we look to accelerate a new age for comic books and graphic novels.”

“Amazon and comiXology share a passion for reinventing reading in a digital world,” said David Naggar, Amazon Vice President, Content Acquisition and Independent Publishing. “We’ve long admired the passion comiXology brings to changing the way we buy and read comics and graphic novels. We look forward to investing in the business, growing the team, and together, bringing comics and graphic novels to even more readers.

Will this be a new age for digital comics? We sure hope so.
