Unlimited Extras: What’s Coming To Comixology Unlimited In January
Every month, Comixology adds more titles to its burgeoning all-you-can-eat subscription service Comixology Unlimited, which allows readers access to a virtual library of comics for a flat monthly fee. January’s update goes live today, and the service is set to be bolstered by a new wave of awesome comics for you to peruse, including G-Man, Kaijumax and Megahex.
While the roster of Comixology Unlimited titles has been incredibly rich since its launch, it has thus far focused mostly on the higher profile indie titles and publishers, but the addition of Simon Hanselman's Megahex seems to mark a possible shift in the content provided through the service.
In a statement provided by Comixology, Hanselmann said, "While I know nothing about technology and have never read a digital comic, it's nice to see a departure from the cape-centric mainstream stuff and see some alternative comics in the mix on Comixology."
Megahex is the first of Hanselmann's books from Fantagraphics starring the popular characters of Megg, Mogg, and Owl, which are very, very, very loosely based of a series of 1970s British children's' books. Last year, the cartoonist released a follow-up in Megg & Mogg In Amsterdam, and he is currently working on the follow up, One More Year, which he says is "basically the best humor comic ever made, by anybody"
As a word of warning, Megahex is a mature readers book and features some scenes and jokes that may make readers uncomfortable, including a scene that involves sexual assault.
Elsewhere in the line-up this month is Zander Cannon's cult-favorite Kaijumax, a prison drama featuring large Godzilla style monsters, and Chris Giarrusso's all-ages superhero caper G-Man: Learning To Fly which is a personal favorite of mine.
Check out a preview of Megahex below, and the full list of everything joining and leaving Comixology Unlimited this month:
