Battle Angel Alita Manga from Kodansha Comics and ComiXology Originals

Long after being out of print, Yukito Kishiro’s iconic and popular manga series Battle Angel Alita is available today for the first time in nearly a decade, with a stunning new translation of the first three volumes available exclusively as a digital release from Kodansha Comics via comiXology Originals. Kishiro’s post-apocalyptic science fiction story about an amnesiac cyborg named Alita has thrilled international audiences since it was originally published in 1990. James Cameron is currently producing a live-action adaptation of the acclaimed title.

The digital exclusive release of Battle Angel Alita volumes 1-3 is available today for free with a comiXology Unlimited membership, or for $10.99 per volume on comiXology or Kindle. Each volume is available in comiXology’s Guided View, allowing fans to cinematically read from panel-to-panel at their own pace. The entire series will be released as part of the comiXology Originals program this year, with Volumes 4-6 debuting in August and the concluding volumes 6-9 appearing in October.

Although the new translations of Battle Angel Alita are only available as digital editions for now, readers looking for print editions of the new versions can look forward to Kodansha Comics releasing premium hardcover Deluxe Editions starting November 2017.

Bringing exclusive comic content to comiXology and Kindle, the comiXology Originals lineup not only includes this release from Kodansha Comics, but also releases from BOOM! Studios, Valiant Entertainment, and the upcoming Marley’s Ghost by the legendary Harvey Kurtzman, currently available for pre-order. ComiXology Originals are digital only and exclusively available for comiXology and Kindle customers.

Guided View Comes to Kindle

Amazon today announced the Kindle debut of comiXology’s Guided View experience, now available on the Kindle app for iOS, Fire tablets and Android. With this update, Kindle readers can cinematically read from panel-to-panel at their own pace. Each Guided View experience is handcrafted by a comic lover to make sure fans can become immersed in reading their favorite comic books, even on the smallest screen. Guided View is delivered as part of a free, over-the-air update on the Kindle app for iOS, Fire tablets and Android.

This is something I predicted way back in 2014 as one of the things likely to happen when Amazon purchased comiXology (integration with Amazon log in was another that has come true).

With Guided View, Kindle comic book fans will be able to lose themselves in over 85,000 digital comics and graphic novels like never before, making reading comics more immersive and enjoyable on any size device.

Valiant High #3

Written by: Daniel Kibblesmith
Art by: Derek Charm
Cover by: David Baron and David Lafuente

Mysteries revealed! Who is the enigmatic “Eternal Sophomore” and what’s his connection with the creepy janitor? And why does Armstrong not seem to like the Sophomore? Colin King and Pete Stanchek are on the case! But more trouble is brewing outside of social circles in Valiant High – an evil, long since forgotten, is about to rear its ugly head – and it’s up to the students of Valiant High to stop it!

Taking place outside of Valiant’s standard continuity, Valiant High is packed with never-before-seen incarnations of the greatest icons from the largest independent superhero universe in comics – including Archer & Armstrong, the Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, the Eternal Warrior, Toyo Harada, Kris Hathaway, Peter Stanchek, Quantum and Woody, and many more. You’ve never seen the heroes of the Valiant Universe quite like this before!

Part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content only available on comiXology and Kindle. This title will be available as part of comiXology Unlimited at launch.
