Today ComicBlitz, a rapidly-growing digital subscription service that offers unlimited access to comics, is launching its Android app. The all-you-can-eat comics startup is also announcing today that over 200 individual investors have participated in its equity crowdfunding campaign, and have collectively contributed nearly $100K. The WeFunder campaign, intentionally designed for comic fans who want to contribute small amounts to participate in the company’s growth, is set to close on April 29.
“Our fans and new investors have been clamoring for service to be available on Android, and we’ve spent months in beta to bring it to them,” ComicBlitz CEO Jordan Plosky said. “We’re looking forward to fan feedback as they experience our service on Android, and enjoy our wide variety of digital comics on their mobile devices.”
Currently, ComicBlitz offers consumers full and unlimited on the go access to more than 4,500 comics and graphic novels representing more than 750 titles from publishers such as IDW, Valiant, Top Cow, Dynamite, Action Lab, Zenescope, Aspen, Abrams ComicArts, DMC Comics and many others. The premium monthly subscription price for the full comic library is $7.99.
The WeFunder campaign which wraps up at the end of this month gives enthusiasts the ability to not only invest in something they care about, but get direct lines of communication with the top decision makers. The investments will be used to strike deals with other top key publishers and to continuously improve the overall consumer features.
