“Kodansha is a publisher that comiXology fans have been clamoring to read on our platform,” comiXology’s co-founder and CEO David Steinberger said in the announcement. In addition to Attack on Titan and several of its spin-off series, initial offerings include new series Noragami and The Seven Deadly Sins, and omnibus editions of XXXholic, Tokyo Mew Mew and Tsubasa. Several new series will be added in the coming months.
“It’s wonderful to bring our deep manga library to comiXology and their passionate audience,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media, the Kodansha subsidiary in charge of its digital distribution. “We’re thrilled to provide a significant boost to comiXology’s manga selection.”
Yesterday, Viz Media announced that the digital English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump will be made available on comiXology and Amazon’s Kindle Store (see “'Weekly Shonen Jump' Now on ComiXology, Kindle”).
