Unlimited Extras: What’s Coming To Comixology Unlimited In August
If you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, Comixology's new Unlimited service is being touted as Netflix for indie comics. Subscribers pay a flat monthly fee, and they get access to a library of titles from publishers like Image, Valiant, Archie and more, including smaller self-publishers. And, like Netflix, new stuff is showing up on a monthly basis to keep readers hooked.
This month, as we roll into August, Comixology has announced the addition of another 25 titles --- and if you're looking for a good place to start, I've got a couple of suggestions. Starting today, you can read the entirety of Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage's Faith miniseries from Valiant, and the first volume of Eric Jones and Landry Q. Walker's amazing Danger Club.
Those two series take a completely different approach to young superheroes, with Faith following the telekinetic Faith Herbert as she balances a life in LA working for an entertainment website and her superheroic career as Zephyr. And when she stumbles on an alien invasion of Hollywood, things only get more complicated.
Danger Club, on the other hand, focuses on the incredibly violent --- and incredibly deadly --- struggles between teen sidekicks who are left as the only superheroes on Earth after all of their adult counterparts die on a mission to space. It's gripping, thrilling, and shocking, and the way it's told between a series of flashbacks to the history of the characters is one of my favorite uses of the form in recent memory.
