Premiere Comics Publisher Rolls out Two Digital Titles in time for the Holidays

Dynamite Entertainment announced today that they have partnered with comiXology to roll out two of their titles via the Comics by comiXology iPhone app before the holidays.

Fans can look for Dynamite's Terminator and the Army of Darkness Holiday Special now in the Comics by comiXology app! The free app is available, with over 700 comics, on Apple's iTunes App Store.

"The world is evolving and along with it, the way we purchase and view entertainment, including comics. That's something that we all are adapting to. But there is a ‘wow' part, and that is in combining the cool comics Dynamite produces with the work that comiXology is doing and usher it to the brand-new audience waiting to experience our DYNAMITE publications. While we love producing comics as monthly periodicals and collected editions, introducing new fans to comics through the iPhone and other technologies will help to complement and grow the industry. Working with comiXology is a great way to take existing comics and bring them to a new audience, and work to bring that audience back to the comic shops. So, while until now we've been hesitant to do anything that would adversely affect our comics retail partners, the additional features that comiXology adds that allows fans to find out more about the comics stores near them has made this the right time and a win-win for everyone."

"We're incredibly excited to expand Comics by comiXology with Dynamite Entertainment," said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. "The amazing titles and work will really shine on the platform. Terminator and Ash are a great start to a full line of Dynamite titles on the iPhone."

The Guided View feature of Comics by comiXology 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. The app's retailer locator will enable customers to contact local retailers from within the app itself to order the print edition of Dynamite Entertainment Comics.

Fans can review the available Dynamite titles on the web beginning on the aforementioned days here:

Comic News: Iron Man's World Gets Rocked By The Sold Out Stark: Disassembled

Marvel is proud to announce that Invincible Iron Man #21, the second chapter of the red-hot “Stark Disassembled” line has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level), continuing a successful year for the Eisner Award-winning Invincible Iron Man!

The blockbuster creative team of Matt Fraction (Uncanny X-Men) and Salvador Larroca reunite Tony Stark’s closest friends and lovers to help bring him back to life…but does he want to come back? And what do his enemies have planned to ensure his demise? Please note that Invincible Iron Man #20 is still in stock for fans and retailers looking to experience one of the most acclaimed stories this year!

"In addition to living up to the promise of its cover, this issue continues to offer what may replace ‘Demon in a Bottle’ as the definitive take on the character of Tony Stark."-- Tim Lenaghan,

“Fraction's Tony Stark has been one of the most well-defined portrayals of the character ever…Maybe the best version of Iron Man ever. Larroca and D'Armata really are at their best with the mechanical aspects of this series.” – Timothy Callahan,

“If you haven't given this a try yet, you really should…Highly Recommended!” – Adam Chapman,

“Fraction continues with his excellent characterization of Tony Stark.” –

“Invincible Iron Man has provided a high-quality, 12-issue storyline with a consistent art team in the space of just 10 months--and that's definitely something to be proud of.” – David Wallace,

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Invincible Iron Man, as the series continues to draw mainstream media buzz and sell out immediately! As “Stark: Disassembled” rockets towards a stunning conclusion, don’t miss out on the next chapter in Invincible Iron Man #22!

Please note that Marvel currently has no plans to go back to press on Invincible Iron Man #21.
