ComiXology, the comic industry's leading digital comics platform, hit a major milestone this month with its 200 millionth digital download.
That marks substantial growth for the company, which hit the 100 million downloads mark only last year. ComiXology was founded in 2007, and its digital reader app launched in 2009, meaning that readers have downloaded as many comics through the app in the past year as they did in the first three.
