ComiXology has launched the new HTML5 versions of its Digital Storefronts for comic retailers, the company announced Wednesday.  The new Digital Storefronts will be usable on all platforms, including iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.  The new versions also make available numerous new features, including subscriptions, pre-orders, and sales, which were not previously available through the Storefronts. 

“For comic fans everywhere who wish to support their local comic shops with digital comic purchases, this HTML5 upgrade to our current Retailer Digital Storefront program is a huge step forward,” comiXology co-founder John Roberts said. 

The addition of subscriptions means that fans that want digital copies of ongoing series can order them through their favorite store’s Digital Storefront, and have each issue available for reading on the Web or in any of the comiXology apps on the day of release.
