ComiXology launches all-you-can-read service

One low price scores you a ton of books to read, month-in, month-out on comiXology.

comiXology Unlimited

“We’re in a new golden age of storytelling with more incredible comics, graphic novels and manga than ever before,” said comiXology’s CEO and Co-Founder David Steinberger. “ComiXology Unlimited is fantastic portal to tons of great comics at a ridiculously great price. Get in there and start exploring.”

Already one of the premier digital comic book platforms out there, Amazon’s (you didn’t forget they bought them, did you?) comiXology is a favorite of ours here at BG. And as great as it already was, it just got better to the tune of ‘all-you-can-read’.

For the low price of $5.99 USD per month, the new plan offered by the company will let you unlimited access to books from a bunch of the biggest publishers out there today.  While the big two are excluded from the list, you’ll find some incredible stuff nonetheless.

Included in the deal are books from “IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, Kodansha Comics, Oni Press, Valiant Entertainment, Archie Comics, Fantagraphics Books, Humanoids, Action Lab Entertainment, Aspen Comics, Zenescope Entertainment and more”. Honestly, this is probably worth it for Valiant and IDW alone, and if you can’t find some goodies in there somewhere, then you’re doing it wrong.
