NEW YORK (AP) — Add Avatar Press to digital comics purveyor Comixology's expanding storefront.
The privately owned Comixology announced the addition Wednesday ahead of the start of the annual New York Comic Con, with Avatar joining some 75 publishers, including Marvel, DC, Zenescope, Valiant and Image, along with independent creators.
The Rantoul, Ill.-based Avatar Press' titles include Max Brooks' "Extinction Parade," Jonathan Hickman's "God Is Dead," Kieron Gillen's "Uber" and several titles from writer Warren Ellis, along with Alan Moore's "Neonomicon."
Comixology also announced that it reached a deal with VIZ Media Europe and its French subsidiary, Kaze, to make that publisher's collection of manga in French.
Earlier this week, DC Entertainment said a vast swath of its graphic novels and collected editions, including "Watchmen," ''Y the Last Man" and "V for Vendetta" were now available through Comixology, too.
"It took us three years to hit 100 million comic book and graphic novel downloads and then only one more year to hit 200 million," said comiXology chief executive and co-founder David Steinberger.
Since its founding in July 2007, Comixology has grown to include more than 40,000 comics and graphic novels with more than 200 million downloads on tablets using Apple's iOS and Google's Android, as well as computers and electronic readers like the Kindle Fire.
