Comixology Announces Subscription Service

The “Netflix of comics” appears to have arrived as today Comixology announced a new service called Comixology Unlimited which will cost you $5.99 a month and gives you unlimited access to over 100,000 comic books.

Offering a free thirty-day trial at the start, the service will NOT be offering DC or Marvel titles. It will however include selections from the mini-majors (like Image Comics, IDW and Dark Horse) and other independent comic book publishers.

Titles available at launch include: “Attack on Titan,” “B.P.R.D.,” “Bitch Planet,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Chew,” “The Complete Peanuts,” “Fatale,” “Hellboy,” “Hip Hop Family Tree,” “Lazarus,” “Letter 44,” “Locke & Key,” “Lone Wolf and Cub,” “Love and Rockets,” “Lumberjanes,” “My Little Pony,” “Outcast,” “Princeless,” “Saga,” “Scott Pilgrim,” “Serenity,” “Sex Criminals,” “Star Trek,” “Transformers,” “Wuvable Oaf,” and “The Wicked + The Divine”.

The service reportedly plans to cycle through the content being offered, not all those titles will have every issue available though. Subscribers will be able to download up to fifty books to read offline for long trips.
