Dark Horse Comics' digital store is celebrating its second anniversary this weekend, and it's kicking off the party with a bang.

As of today, 38 single issues and eighteen collections from Dynamite Entertainment are available through Dark Horse Digital, with more to come each week, according to a news release from Dark Horse. Dynamite's upcoming comics will be available through the Dark Horse Digital store the same day as print.

Dynamite Entertainment President Nick Barrucci told CBR that Dynamite's comics will continue to be available through ComiXology and iVerse, but adding the publisher's books to Dark Horse Digital "adds a new audience that we never would have otherwise."

He elaborated:

Dark Horse and Dynamite have natural similarities, both in genre and audiences. Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica share the same kind of sci-fi fun and adventure. Dark Horse has Conan the Barbarian, while Dynamite has Red Sonja. They have been home to the Whedonverse properties Buffy and Angel, while we have similar horror and fantasy properties like Vampirella and Grimm. Their Creepy and Eerie archives perfectly complement our Vampirella archives. It's such a natural fit for both of us.

Dark Horse Digital will also be offering 50 free #1 issues through Friday morning at 9 a.m. PT, the release states. After that, the publisher will offer 10 percent off comic bundles in its web store all weekend, with Newsletter subscribers getting an even bigger discount.
