Comixology Debuts Line of Exclusive Original Comics
By Calvin Reid in PW (Oct 05, 2016) – In conjunction with three publishing partners, Comixology, Amazon’s digital comics marketplace, is launching a digital publishing program. Comixology Originals will offer comics titles exclusively through the Comixology and Kindle platforms.
The original works will be published in digital editions for a limited, currently undefined, period.
To launch the program, Comixology is partnering with two independent comics publishers, Boom! Studios and Valiant Entertainment, as well as the estate of acclaimed cartoonist Harvey Kurtzman (the founding editor of Mad magazine).
Comixology Originals is working with Boom! Studios to produce the Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular, a three-story title starring Marshall Lee, the vampire teen star of the Cartoon Network’s popular Adventure Time animation series. One story will be written by Eisner-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (co-creator of the graphic novel This One Summer), with art by Audrey Mok.
The other stories will be written by Melanie Gillman with artist Trungles; and by writer S.M. Vidaurri with artist Asia Kendrick-Horton. The Marshall Lee title will include a cover by Eisner-winning artist Fabio Moon.
