SDCC 2012 – Fantagraphics and comiXology Announce Digital Distribution Agreement
Yesterday, Fantagraphics celebrating the 30th anniversary of publishing the Hernandez Brothers’ groundbreaking Love and Rockets announced entrance into the digital age through a brand new digital distribution agreement with comiXology.
To mark the occasion, Fantagraphics Books and comiXology have immediately made available the first four issues of the Hernandez Brothers’ phenomenal Love and Rockets: New Stories. 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 worked closely together to acquire the highest resolution source material to make sure these volumes of Love and Rockets: New Stories look great in comiXology’s new high–definition comic format — CMX-HD — for Love and Rockets fans that are reading on the new iPad.
