Comixology Launches New Subscription And Bundle Services
Despite its tremendous recent growth, one of the ways in which ComiXology was still a bit behind for many digital readers was in subscriptions for ongoing titles. That's all changed as of this morning, as the online store has announced subscription services for all ongoing titles as well as bundle packages, allowing customers to purchase curated collections at discounted prices.
In a press release, co-founder and CEO David Steinberger discussed the announcement:
“Every hour of every day, everyone at comiXology is thinking about how to make it easier for comiXology fans to get the comics they love. With subscriptions and bundles we’ve taken yet another step in delivering the great experience that our users deserve.”
The new service means customers don't have to know when the latest issues of any series they're subscribed to come out. Once a new issue is online, you'll be notified by ComiXology. The change is effective immediately, as every ongoing title on the platform now has a "Subscribe to Series" button, along with instructions as to how the subscription works.
As for the bundle service, there are currently 17 total available, from various publishers: Marvel, IDW, Monkeybrain, Valiant, Archaia, BOOM! Studios, Image, Dynamtie and Zenescope. ComiXology has more information currently up on its site.
