Asylum Press Signs With Comixology For Digital Distribution

In the first week of release Steve Mannion's Fearless Dawn #1 races to #3 in sales on the Comixology App. Asylum Press announced today that it has signed a non-exclusive agreement with Comixology for distribution of its comics on the iPhone. Among the titles to be released first if Steve Mannion's Fearless dawn mini-series and Elizabeth J. Musgrave's Farmhouse.

"I am very excited to work with Comixology on delivering Asylum Press' comics to the iPhone. There are millions of iPhone users and it opens up our reader base quite significantly, "says publisher Frank Forte, "The comics market has needed to get to new fans for over a decade and this seems to be the best way to do it. We hope it will drive readers to their local comics shops."

The first Fearless Dawn 4-issue mini-series sub-titled "The Belly of the Beast" is an action packed thrill-rid. Jet riding good girl FEARLESS DAWN battles her arch nemesis Helga Von Krause in this mini-series from Steve Mannion. Fearless Dawn infiltrates the vaunted "Manitoba Sector" to discover the secret behind Helga's chemically induced NAZI MONSTERS. Meanwhile, all is not well back at home base when Fearless Dawn's boss discovers our hero has broken probation and flown the coop.

Farmhouse is a dark character drama set in a mental institution set in the town of Paintsville in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. In this tale, Sam Corneile, A drifter, returns home to take a job at a local mental institution where he discovers a group of patients being exploited under an art therapy regimen. While there, he falls for Helen, a feisty but troubled female who dares him to confront his past. Farmhouse is written by Elizabeth J. Musgrave and Illustrated by Szymon Kudranski.

In the coming months Asylum Press will release Asylum of Horrors, Undead Evil, Zombie Terrors, Billy Boy The Sick Little Fat Kid, The Vampire Verses and other upcoming titles for Comixology's iPhone app comic store.

Here's the link to Comixology's iPhone store

The Comics by ComiXology App is a digital comic store, library and reader for iPhone and iPod touch that is launching with over 100 titles available from twenty popular comic publishers and many independent comic writers."The stunning display and innovative multi-touch user interface of iPhone and iPod touch have finally made comics appealing in a digital format," said David Steinberger, CEO of Iconology, Inc. "By combining great comics with iPhone OS 3.0's In-App Purchasing and location awareness features we are creating a revolution in the way comics are sold and read which could only happen with iPhone and iPod touch."

The Comics by ComiXology App heralds an entirely new comic book publishing and connected commerce model. With the Comics by ComiXology app, comic book enthusiasts can not only read their comics in a format designed to preserve the comic book experience on an iPhone or iPod touch, but also locate and connect with local retailers to purchase the printed version of the titles. Through relationships with comic book retailers, Comics by ComiXology will increase both digital and print sales of comics and deliver a powerful mobile marketing tool for comic book publishers and retailers. Comics by ComiXology offers a "guided view" that keeps the entire page of a comic intact, unlike other solutions where the page is cut into individual pictures the user browses like a photo application. Comics by ComiXology is a reader app that contains all a user's comics and offers its own digital comics store that supports multiple publishers.
