ComiXology is the easiest way to bring your entire comic book and graphic novel library with you wherever you go.
A subsidiary of Amazon.com, comiXology provides a cloud-based digital comics platform that grants you access to over 50,000 books from over 75 publishers and independent creators. That is the broadest library of comic books and graphic novels available on a mobile device.
The comiXology app is available for iPhone/iPad, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows 8. A supporting web store and reader is at www.comixology.com. The cloud-based nature of comiXology allows you to read and automatically sync your entire library on all of your devices.
ComiXology was a top ten grossing iPad app in 2011 and 2012 and the top grossing non-game iPad app in 2012 and 2013.
ComiXology has regular sales featuring some of the biggest titles in the comic world. Those on a budget, or if you prefer to try before you buy, there are many free books available for download. This greatly helps readers in discovering new stories. Also, comiXology releases new editions on the same day as print releases.
Reading is easy and immersive thanks to comiXology’s Guided View technology. This transforms a static medium into an engaging cinematic experience, making even classic stories fresh and new and a joy to read over and over again.
Of personal interest, comiXology allows independent writers and artists to submit their own work. Submissions go through an approval process, but once approved comiXology will upload it complete with Guided View for free. The book then goes on sale worldwide with the creator and comiXology splitting the profits evenly.
