Dark Horse Black Friday

You can go ahead and call this “Dark Friday,” “Dark Horse Friday,” or just “Dark Side Friday,” because Dark Horse Comics is offering an incredible sale for Black Friday that has a collected digital purchase of all of the available Star Wars comics for a mere $100.

Yes, I agree with you, it is a great deal. But it will only last 24 hours on Black Friday, November 25, 2011. This sale offers 134 Star Wars comics for the great deal of $100. That’s less than a dollar an issue with a total savings of over $166 dollars off the retail prices. So, set digital.darkhorse.com as a bookmark, make a reminder on your calendar, just do something because you are not going to want to miss this one!

Digital comics company Panelfly has partnered with former executives at Sony, AOL, and Hulu to form new digital media company SYN — and NOT a partnership with companies themselves. Founder and CEO of SYN Kirt Mcmaster e-mailed us to correct the information reported earlier from the Digital Comics Now panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

Panelfly will dissolve into SYN, which aims to produce for movies, television shows, animation, and much more in addition to comic books, according to McMaster, who gave us the following statement: “[SYN is] focused on the ‘fantastic’ that will redefine this space across all platforms — with a focus on supermobile extending into the digital home experience.”

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

[Update – we have new information and some clarification on the original news out of the panel at SDCC. Click here for the updated report, which includes a quote we got from founder and CEO of SYN Kirt Mcmaster.]

Panelfly has formed a partnership with Sony, AOL, and Hulu to produce a new digital comics reader software called Syn, according to CEO Wade Slitkin, who made the announcement during the “Digital Comics Now” panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

A Syn iPad app was said to be released soon, featuring the Panelfly skeletal software. This will replace the Panelfly name and become the main product for the company.

This is the first “cross-platform” partnership made with a digital comics company and details have yet to be released. However, the temporary holding page, synner.net, states a 2011 release and offer e-mail notifications when new details become available.

Official: DC Comics Apps For Apple’s iOS4 And PlayStation

As reported earlier, DC Comics has finally launched their digital publishing initiatives with a native application for Apple’s iOS4 mobile operating system (iPad, iPhone, iTouch) and two separate distribution deals with comic reader platform ComiXology and Sony’s PlayStation Network (PS3, PSP) — with plans to sell comics digitally through the DC Comics website later in the year [read DC Comics Releases iPad/iPhone App].

“As both a comic book creator and Co-Publisher, it was incredibly important that our plan includes not only creator incentive payments, but also an innovative component that supports comic shop owners. We see digital as an opportunity to grow our entire business,” stated Jim Lee in DC’s official press release.

Lee first spoke about the company’s digital comics publishing strategy at a Wonder*Con 2010 panel, which fell on the same day Apple’s iPad was released as well as Marvel Entertainment’s own native application. At the time he stressed that there was no market for digital publishing for the simple fact that no one was making money from it yet. With this new initiative, it’s looking like DC plans to change that entirely by building into its preexisting print sales.

DC Comics Releases iPad/iPhone App

In a surprise twist, DC Comics has shocked the world and joined the digital revolution by releasing their very own iPhone and iPad apps this week!

This application is based off of and made in conjunction with the popular Comixology comic reader that provides the basis for the Marvel Comics and Boom! Studios apps as well, so it seems like Comixology is going to be the source for this medium in the future.

I have yet to see any official press release from DC Comics, but after browsing through the application, I have noticed a few key things. First, a free preview is available for Superman #700, which hits stores today, but there are no other same day releases that I can find. Not only does this application have access to the wide-spanning DC Universe, it also celebrates the strong libraries of DC’s imprint publishers Wildstorm and Vertigo. The application has paid issues from All Star Superman, Planetary, and Fables, but it also has free comics like Batman: Black and White, Fringe, and Mirror’s Edge.
