While Comixology has quickly grown to be the top digital comic service online or in app form, hosting both Marvel and DC’s massive catalog amongst thousands of indie comics, they do lack a few titles. Publishers like Dynamite and Dark Horse have went their own route, with Dark Horse holding their own digital comic service and app to keep things away from Comixology. But that could all change very soon. A few short hours ago Comixology tweeted an ominous post that simply said “Coming Soon.” and featured a video of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy looking down at a ticking wrist watch with the date More >

Yes, that might read odd, but it certainly is right. Dynamite Entertainment has made a deal with Dark Horse comics for digital publishing of Dynamite’s many titles in an electronic medium. That means Red Sonja will be next to Conan now and you can read titles like The Boys or Masks on your mobile device or computer using Dark Horse Digital.

But as many in the industry know, Comixology takes a pretty hefty percent of sales, and it looks like this deal More >
