Marketing Monday: Top Comic Apps

It’s Marketing Monday here at Graphic Policy and we’re still tracking various comic apps, how they rank up against each other, and the general app population.

For this report, I felt it best to focus on Wednesday of the previous week, since that should be the busiest day of the week for apps since its new comic day. This report also focuses on the ranks in the United States. I’ll eventually look at the entire week down the road and expand the location. I also wanted to look at the gross income for the apps, so apps included are those where you’d purchase books. So apps like comiXology’s offerings would be included, but Marvel’s AR app isn’t. Marvel Unlimited is included on the list too, though isn’t measured by revenue like the rest of the apps. I’ve also separated the apps based on their platform as best I could.

Most apps are on the iOS platform, which isn’t surprising at all. The Comics app by comiXology is the juggernaut in every category. This week saw the various rankings increase and decrease with no rhyme or reason. It’ll be interesting to see how comiXology’s rank might change on Amazon over time with the announced purchase by the tech company.

Dark Horse Announces The Strain: The Night Eternal!

As the world gears up for the premiere of the new FX television program adapting the original novel trilogy The Strain, Dark Horse announces The Night Eternal, the third comics chapter of this ongoing vampire epic, adapted by David Lapham and Mike Huddleston.

Following the first two comics series, The Strain and the recently wrapped The Fall, The Night Eternal will begin on August 20, just after The Strain’s television debut on FX!

It’s been two years since the Master’s plan succeeded and a near apocalypse coated the world in darkness. Now able to roam freely, the Master’s legion of vampires rule the world—a horrifying police state where humans are harvested for blood. As humanity despairs, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and an unlikely team of heroes continue their fight against extinction, all the while hoping to unlock the secret to the Master’s demise. The final chapter in the Strain Trilogy, the series that put a terrifying twist on the vampire genre, begins here.

Dark Horse is giving readers a chance to catch up on what they’ve been missing with a one-dollar reprint of the first issue of The Strain. This horrifying first chapter of the original Strain saga takes readers back to the beginning of an outbreak of diabolical proportions. On shelves June 18.

It doesn’t stop there! July will see the reprint of the entire first series of The Strain in a deluxe hardcover. This all-new edition will collect the first eleven issues in 272 full-color pages for only $29.99! On sale July 9 in comic shops everywhere.

July will also see the release of The Strain Volume 4: The Fall, wrapping up the second series. This collection arrives at your local comic shop on July 2 for $19.99.

Read the comic! Watch the series!

Last week was a new issue of The Walking Dead and has been the pattern, the app rose in the ranks. Also new this week is Humanoid Comics’ new app. While it didn’t rank, we’ve added it and will be tracking it going forward.
