Jenette Kahn and Milton Griepp have joined the advisory board of comiXology, makers of the Comics by comiXology app for iPhone and iPod Touch, and a family of comic retailer tools. Kahn was the president of DC Comics for 27 years and is currently a producer and partner in Double Nickel Entertainment, which released Gran Torino last year. Griepp has been in the comics business for over 30 years as a distributor, retailer, and publisher. He’s the founder and president of ICv2.
“I’m excited about comiXology’s approach to the business, including its cutting edge technology and its involvement with the direct market comic store, a critical factor in the growth of comics over the last several decades,” Griepp said.
