Avatar: The Last Airbender is the newest addition to Dark Horse Digital. Combined, The Art of the Animated Series, The Lost Adventures and The Promise have sold more than 100,000 copies. The digital release of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels is the latest development in an ongoing partnership between Nickelodeon and Dark Horse Comics.
Dark Horse Comics launched its standalone comic reader app and digital store on April 27, 2011, and has received incredible support from the continuously growing digital-comics fan base.
Since then, Dark Horse Digital has grown significantly in numbers and readership, featuring its most popular, best-selling titles, including Star Wars, Buffy, Serenity, Hellboy, Conan and Mass Effect, as well as exclusive, digital-only comics, such as Falling Skies, Prototype 2 and Dragon Age. Dark Horse Digital also provides sales and discounts for its reader base on a weekly basis. It currently offers thousands of comics and is continuing to increase the digital availability of the Dark Horse back catalog.
Dark Horse Digital is available through all modern Web browsers and features cloud storage in both the Android and iOS apps.
Dark Horse Digital offers single-issue comics priced as low as $0.99, and there is also an extensive list of free introductory #1 issues. Additionally, DH Digital’s “bundles” group together story arcs spanning multiple issues into affordable packages, allowing readers to get all the issues that comprise a complete narrative, starting at just $3.99 and up. And through cloud-based technology, Digital Store purchases can be read and enjoyed on your laptop, desktop, mobile browser and Dark Horse Bookshelf app, available now on iTunes.
