ComicBlitz Adds IDW Publishing and Drops Their Pricing

idw-comicblitzComicBlitz continues to add comic publishers to their digital comics platform. It has been announced that IDW Publishing has joined with hundreds of comics and graphic novels will be rolling out over the next few months on the platform, starting today with over 125 issues of titles such as Transformers, GI Joe, Star Trek, My Little Pony, Dungeons & Dragons, Locke & Key, The Crow, Angel, Judge Dredd and more. Upcoming titles include 30 Days of Night, Jem and The Holograms, Angry Birds, Skylanders, Samurai Jack, The Maxx, Danger Girl, and even more from the initial wave of titles.

ComicBlitz is an “all you can read” digital service, but unlike some others, there isn’t a rotation of what’s available.

Also with the addition of IDW, ComicBlitz has announced that they have lowered their prices with two tiers. The platform has a new lower Unlimited Plan from $9.99 to $7.99 per month for a limited time.  For the price of 2 comics, users now have unlimited access to over 4,500 comics and graphic novels at their fingertips.

In addition, ComicBlitz has added an all-new Basic Plan, a low cost entry point for new users!  For the price of one new comic, at just $3.99/mo, users have unlimited access to any ten comics of their choosing, as well as access to features like offline reading, bookshelf usage, rating, reviewing, and social media sharing.

ComicBlitz Expands to the Web

ipad-browseThe battle for “all you can read” comics has heated up as ComicBlitz has announced the digital platform will be expanding to a web app from its iOS roots on June 21st.

Having launched in October 2015, the “Netflix like” digital comic service had just been available to iOS users leaving Android and Windows users waiting for their turn. Now, that wait is over. The company has expanded its reach “with the launch of a universally compatible web app that operates on all devices — PC’s, laptops, tablets, and smartphones on any OS (Android, Windows, Mac, and iOS).”

ComicBlitz costs $9.99 a month with the first 30 days free. The service offers comics from publishers such as Valiant, Dynamite, Action Lab, Aspen, Darby Pop, and more.

Though the iOS app currently remains the sole native app for ComicBlitz, the company is planning to unveil an Android app in the near future.

Two key features of the app is that it “streams” comic books rather than having to download each comic, providing faster, easier reading without burdening device memory. Also content does not “rotate”, which means once the content arrives on ComicBlitz, it remains on the platform indefinitely so the user does not have to rush to complete a series. This differentiates itself from comiXology Unlimited which will have a rotating choice of comics.
