Dark Horse announced today that starting Dec. 14, all its comics will be released simultaneously in print and digital format. The publisher launched its digital store and iOS app earlier this year, and while it was a bit later to get into the game than most comics companies, it has been aggressively building its digital library.
I checked in with Dark Horse marketing guy Aub Driver, and he told me that this doesn’t just apply to single-issue comics; trades and original graphic novels will be released same-day print and digital as well. “If it’s coming out — and we have the digital rights (which we do to 98% of our titles) then it’s coming out day and date,” he said.
Prices will range from 99 cents to $1.99 for single-issue comics and $2.99 to $7.99 for trades.
