Icon Titles ‘Powers,’ ‘Criminal,’ ‘Incognito’ Get Wide Digital Distribution
Marvel’s Icon imprint has been getting a fair amount of attention in the digital space lately by announcing that a few of its biggest titles, “Powers” by Brian Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, along with Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ “Criminal” and “Incognito” will join Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s “Kick-Ass” for download via most major distributors on April 22.
Available for download care of Comixology, iVerse and Panefly on Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch or on the PSP through its online store, each series will offer a chunk of issues at launch.
“Powers” #1-6, “Criminal” #1-2 and “Incognito” #1 should hit each platform near simultaneously and retail for $1.99 per issue.No word on a regular release schedule for each respective series, but in the burgeoning digital market it’ll likely be a case of responding to sales. At any rate, it’s another reason for my personal inner iPad purchase debate to rage on.
