Brian Pulido’s Coffin Comics teams up with Key Collector Comics Mobile App

Just weeks after Valiant Entertainment officially announced a partnership with Key Collector Comics, Brian Pulido has also aligned with the app as his recommended key issue resource to his new and loyal fans.

In February, Brian Pulido will celebrate Lady Death’s 24th year in existence.  In that time, his world-famous character’s supporting cast, series spin-offs and entirely new ventures have grown to triple digits.  With that kind of contribution to the industry, a comprehensive asset like Key Collector Comics is necessary to keep track of where Mr. Pulido’s characters began their journey, where they are now and the milestones in between that defined them.

Like Valiant, Coffin Comics has a dedicated button on the opening search screen of the Key Collector Comics mobile app.  From there, fans can launch into the world of scantily clad angels and demons to trace back to when Lady Death made her first appearance in Evil Ernie #1.

Currently, there are over 60 key issues in the Key Collector Comics database related to the Brian Pulido properties. To generate interest, new keys are added daily, many of which are valuable limited variants that sell for thousands of dollars on eBay.

Valiant Partners with Key Collector Comics App

Valiant Entertainment has joined forces with Key Collector Comics  currently available for iOS and Android – for their first official publisher partnership! The free-to-download mobile app aims to make collecting the most seminal single issues from across the renowned publisher’s 25-year history easier than ever before with a complete list of Valiant’s biggest and most sought-after milestones!

Using the dedicated first-of-its-kind “Valiant Keys” button on the homepage of the mobile app, fans and collectors can access an extensive database full of information and pricing data for more than 100+ significant comic book issues published by Valiant, including first appearances, origin stories, gold issues, iconic cover art, rare variants, and more:

  • Harbinger #0 (1992) Pink Variant – a highly sought-after mailaway issue revealing the origin of the Renegades!
  • Eternal Warrior #4 (1994) – featuring the first cameo appearance by Bloodshot!
  • Quantum and Woody #3 (1997) – featuring the first appearance of Vincent Van Goat (aka “The Goat”)!
  • X-O Manowar #1 (2017) Brushed Metal Variant – Valiant’s first brushed metal variant cover printed via a special process on an actual brushed aluminum metal sheet!
  • Eternity #1 (2017) Massafera Variant – a rare 1:40 wraparound variant cover introducing the complete cast of the visionary new series by Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine, featuring fully painted cover art by Felipe Massafera!
  • Plus dozens more!

The Key Collector Comics app is a concise and comprehensive resource that isolates issues of significance from the clutter of uneventful comics. It features information regarding over 7,000 key issue comic books, as well as a simplified price guide, robust search filters, and a cataloguing system to determine the value of your own collection.

The Comichaus App Has Launched

The Comichaus App is dedicated to indie comics. For a subscription fee of £3 a month (£30 a year) you can:

  • Get access to stream and discover all the indie comics in their catalog
  • Save as many of the comic books offline as your device storage will allow
  • Search by title, creator, genre, and publisher
  • Discover more about creators
  • Support creators – 50% of advertising and subscription revenue will be split with creators based on how many times their books are read

The Comichaus App will work on Apple/iOS devices listed here, and Android/Amazon handsets and tablets running android version 4.4 and above. Kindle store availability will be very soon!

Comichaus wanted to create a model that was beneficial to the creators/publishers and one that would also be self sustaining. The adverts on the app are non intrusive but will mean they can generate income to go back to the creators and publishers, whilst also covering the running costs of the app itself. Members can opt for the £5 a month ‘No Ads’ subscription if they wish.

Anyone can contribute to the Comichaus database. Whether you want to add/amend data on your favourite mainstream books – or you are an indie creator/publisher wanting to add your own. For any new additions simply go to the top right hand corner of this page and click ‘add to database’. Once this database listing is approved your comic book can be uploaded to the Comichaus App.

Archie Comics Reveals Franken 9, Their New Digital-First Sci-Fi Series

What happens when an evil genius uses science to create a group of super powered, highly intelligent teenagers?

Franken 9 is a new sci-fi digital-first comic series by newcomers Jared Goldwater and Ryan Straughn and veteran artist Ryan Jampole featuring an eccentric and mysterious scientist whose experiments result in the creation of a new group of super-humans that will change the fate of the world forever.

Ostracized from the scientific community for his reanimation research, Dr. Lambda steals the brain of a dying genius to implant the minds of 9 homeless teens with his master plan for a new world order.

Newcomers Goldwater & Straughn join veteran comics artist Ryan Jampole on this new series blending together classic science fiction intrigue and bombastic superhero action. From super-powered organ transplants to time travel and everywhere in between, Franken 9 takes readers on a journey full of twists and turns with plenty of mad science.

Dr. Lambda has monstrous plans for his creations – will they follow along or forge their own path forward?

Issues of Franken 9 will be available to read on ComiXology and Amazon beginning November 22.
