Marvel developing a “Digital First” line of comics

Announced during Marvel’s “Next Big Thing” panel at Comic-Con, Marvel Comics is partnering with comiXology to create comic books for the Amazon-owned digital service’s line of exclusive titless called comiXology Originals.

Fortunately for fans, the exclusive kicks off today with the first issue of Immortal Iron Fists by writer Kaare Andrews and artist Afu Chan.

“Immortal Iron Fists serves as a perfect starting point for those new readers who are just discovering the world of Marvel Comics,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications, “We’re loving working with Marvel on this line of exclusive content as part of our comiXology Originals program. Giving new and current fans the option to buy or read for free as part of our comiXology Unlimited subscription service is a huge win. We can’t wait to hear from the fans.”

Look for more titles to be announced later this year.
