Amazon’s Jet City Comics Comes to comiXology
Amazon Publishing’s graphic novel and comics imprint Jet City Comics and comiXology have announced that the first digital issue of Wool: The Graphic Novel, an adaptation of Hugh Howey’s #1 Kindle best-selling science fiction novel, will go on sale today on comiXology and Amazon.com. Single issues in the six-issue run will release every two weeks and sell for $2.99 on comiXology. The entire comics run will also sell for $4.99 as a Kindle Serial on Amazon.com, with new issues delivering automatically to customers on the same release dates, and as a $4.99 bundle on comiXology once all six issues are released. The print edition of the collected graphic novel will be available on Amazon.com and at other retailers in late August.
This is the first joint release since Amazon acquired comiXology, and I expect to see more of this in the future.
Howey’s dark, dystopian novel Wool (the first novel in the Silo Saga trilogy) was a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle best seller and is one of the most-reviewed science fiction novels ever on Amazon, with over 8,000 customer reviews. With an all-star team including comics writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, Hugo-nominated illustrator Jimmy Broxton, and acclaimed cover artist Darwyn Cooke, Wool: The Graphic Novel brings Howey’s dark, dystopian vision to life like never before.
