Dark Horse Comics Launches ePlate Credit Card Experience

Dark Horse has launched the first comic book payments application for the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate credit card device.  The innovative offering lets consumers earn exclusive Dark Horse digital comics with every purchase.

When the Dark Horse experience is selected, a consumer will earn a page from multiple ePlate exclusive comic book series for every $35 the consumer spends anywhere they use their Dynamics ePlate credit card device.  The pages are delivered instantly to their mobile phone the second the purchase is completed.  When all pages in a comic book series are collected, the consumer is mailed physical, collector-edition copies of each comic free-of-charge.

Consumers who use their ePlate credit card device to make purchases through Dark Horse’s Digital store, TFAW.com, or one of the Things From Another World retail stores will be credited double for their purchases.

The first five-issue ePlate exclusive series is Conan: The Phantoms of the Black Coast.  The second exclusive issue is a ground-breaking team-up between Dark Horse favorites Captain Midnight, Ghost, and X.
