Amazon Acquires Digital Comic Book Service comiXology

by Brad MerrillApril 10, 2014


Amazon has announced that it plans to acquire comiXology, a popular digital publishing platform for comic books.

Founded in 2007, comiXology catalogs comic books and graphic novels produced by independent authors along with more than 75 top industry publishers.

Amazon has yet to specify exactly how the digital comics app will fit into its vast portfolio.

Financial terms of the acquisition have not yet been disclosed. The deal is expected to close during the second quarter of 2014.

Assuming the deal goes through, the comiXology team will continue to work out of their existing New York headquarters rather than moving to Amazon’s home base in Seattle.
