Another uprising brings about best selling author Max Brooks into the forefront, one not surrounding his acclaimed novels World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide but touches upon a new comic book series Extinction Parade.
The series publisher Avatar Press extends its catalogue of titles and incarnates their reading format on the digital front.
On the closing eves towards the NYCC, Avatar has announced, as of yesterday, Oct.9, that they will partner with digital provider Comixology.
“It’s great to join forces with comiXology to bring Avatar’s editorial to an entirely new customer base – whether it’s those fans that haven’t been able to find our titles in print or those who simply haven’t been exposed to Avatar’s uncensored catalog,” said Avatar Press Publisher William Christensen. “We look forward to developing a relationship with the digital consumer who will now be able to discover, read, and enjoy Avatar Press titles in comiXology’s ground breaking Guided View.”
The Illinois-headquartered publisher spread a spotlight on a vanguard contingent out of their many titles. Brooks’ Extinction Parade slates alongside a multi-comics digital debut: Warren Ellis’ Black Summer, No Hero and Supergod; Garth Ennis’ Crossed and Crossed: Badlands;Jonathan Hickman’s God is Dead; Kieron Gillen’s Uber 0; Alan Moore’s Neonomicon: David Lapham’s Feral.
“It’s well known that publisher William Christensen – with his singular vision – developed Avatar Press as a place for great creators to tell no-holds-barred stories to a devoted base of fans,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We’re excited to bring William’s unique publishing vision to the world through comiXology’s entire platform, and deliver Avatar’s more challenging content to a global audience of fans through comiXology.com.”
All of the digital debuts by Avatar Press are available on iOS, Android, Kindle or Window 8 mobile platforms.
