Delcourt Group and ComiXology Sign Digital Deal
During the Angoulême International Comic Book Festival, Delcourt Group, the leading independent comic book group on the French market, announced its agreement to distribute its catalog on digital through comiXology. ComiXology recently announced it’s plans to open a new office in Paris, France.
To celebrate the announcement, comiXology has released an updated version of its popular Walking Dead iOS app that not only includes a French language interface but also all of Delcourt’s previously published French language collected editions – including the 17th volume that Delcourt just released on January 30th. All 17 French language volumes of The Walking Dead will also be available for purchase across comiXology’s entire platform in certain European markets with plans to expand worldwide shortly.
The entire catalog of digital Editions Delcourt and Soleil (600 titles currently 1200 to end of 2013) will be progressively online in the first half of 2013 throughout the comiXology platform. ComiXology and Delcourt also plan to launch an application dedicated to Lanfeust of Troy and other Arleston series attached to this universe.
This agreement is part of a strategic approach, for each partner: an international push for comiXology and a sustained growth in the digital world for the Delcourt Group.
