eBay has announced a new partnership with Madefire to expand its comic offerings to again include digital comics and “Motion Books.” This new partnership gives eBay shoppers access to digital comic books, adding to a selection that already tops millions of comic book listings from rare high-graded books to new releases.
Today, ten digital comic bundles will be released with the launch of Madefire’s eBay store. The bundles include a diverse range of publishers – including DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics and Archie Comics – with up to 86% off.
The limited-time digital comic bundles include:
