"We have always hoped that comiXology Originals books would reach readers through comic book retailers and bookstores, and Dark Horse is a great collaborator to work with fordo this, with an unrivaled history of supporting creator-owned projects and unmatched distribution expertise, ”says comiXology CEO / co-founder David Steinberger. "We are delighted to be working with Dark Horse. "
The agreement between Dark Horse and comiXology will not include all comiXology Originals titles but rather titles to be selected on a case-by-case basis. Titles that likely won't be included are comiXology Originals created by rival publishers - like Valiant Ent ertainment, Archie Comics, and Kodansha Comics - who have released and may want to do so in the future themselves.
In 2018, the digital platform announced its intention to offer print-on-demand versions of some of its comiXology Originals titles. The print-on-demand option was short lived and has not continued with recent versions.
"Today 's announcement is a game changer " says Chip Mosher, responsible for the content of comiXology. "The Dark Horse Comics team provide enormous resources and a path for readers around the world to experience comiXology Originals. "
