Aspen Comics is the latest publisher to sign on with comiXology as its digital distributor. Founded in 2003 by the late Michael Turner, Aspen is the home to such titles as Fathom, Soulfire and Lady Mechanika. The publisher launches on comiXology today with the issues #0, #1, and #2 of Executive Assistant Iris, Fathom, Shrugged and Soulfire, priced from 99 cents to $2.99, with the #0 issues offered for free. Full series sets will be priced at a discount from the individual issues. "Exclusive digital content" is teased as well.
Comic Book Resources' Steve Sunu recently talked with Executive Assistant Iris creator David Wohl, who is working on volume 2 and planning a big event for this summer.
Aspen is a small publisher, but it collaborates on DC and Marvel comics, and has some projects in development for other media. This move obviously gives the company a boost, bringing its comics to a larger audience, and it's a nice get for comiXology as well, further enriching its stable of publishers.
