Featuring CMX-HD Capabilities and Better Discoverability

Press release

Image Comics, one of the largest comics publishers in the United States, and comiXology, the world’s largest digital comics platform, announced today the newly upgraded Image Comics iOS App, bringing the critically acclaimed 3.1 version of their app to fans of Image Comics everywhere. This new release includes a major set of feature upgrades — sleek new design, bolstered discoverability, dramatically increased speeds, and an expansive library of over 200 CMX-HD ready digital comics to take advantage of the new iPad’s enhanced display.

 

“Bringing the 3.1 interface to the Image Comics app is a huge win for Image Comics fans,” says comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “The Image Comics library is already a major cornerstone of the modern day comic industry and with 3.1 that library is now more accessible than ever.”

“We couldn’t be happier with the updated Image Comics iOS app and we can’t wait for fans to see books like The Walking Dead, Saga, Fatale and The Manhattan Projects displayed in CMX-HD,” says Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “Bringing the best digital reading experience to the best creator-owned comics just makes sense.”

The Image Comics 3.1 iOS app sports a sleek new design and interface that enhances overall stability and usability. The advanced UI enables a near instantaneous launch dramatically cutting down the app’s load times, allowing fans of Image’s comics and graphic novels to easily find new content and start reading faster than ever before.

In addition to the overall re-design, the app now has new discoverability options, enhanced feature spotlights, more categories for new content, series and storyline listings, and CMX-HD resolution books for users of the new iPad.

To help better organize downloaded comics and graphic novels, “Purchases” now has its own tab so users can always find their comics for quick and easy download without cluttering their “My Comics” area.

Fans will be happy to know that while vast improvements have been made, the Image Comics 3.1 iOS app continues to deliver the quality comic reading experience customers have come to expect from comiXology powered apps through the use of it’s patent-pending Guided View™ Technology; that includes a wide variety of reading options and settings, enabling users to set the speed of transitions in addition to page orientations and much more.

Features and benefits of The Image Comics 3.1 iOS app include:

· Completely redesigned application

· Discover comics at much faster speeds

· Near instant launching

· Background downloading

· Separate “Purchases” area that displays all owned comics

· New series groupings in store and “My Comics”

· Buy or continue reading the next issue at the end of a comic

· Easily read comics from anywhere in the store.

Image Comics fans can also read and buy their favorite Image Comics at comics.imagecomics.com which will sync to the Image Comics iOS app.
