How big are digital comics? Well, get this…comiXology, the number one retailer for digital comics on the iPhone, iPad, and Android OS has recently been selected to be one of the pre-loaded apps on Amazon’s Kindle Fire, right there next to Facebook and Twitter. Yes, folks. Digital comic books are as popular as the two most used social media platforms. Combine this with the fact that comiXology has consistently been voted as the Top Grossing iPad application throughout the iTunes app store, beating out Angry Birds in the process, and it’s hard to imagine that the comic book industry doesn’t gross the same amount as the movie and video game industries.
But far be it from comiXology to become lax in their duties of promoting the digital comics wave. The app developer will be part of this year’s Macworld event in San Francisco. See below for more details.
This week the #1 chart topping iOS App and digital comic book reading platform invades Sunny San Francisco’s Moscone Center for three days of iFan fun at The Macworld Expo. We will be on hand in The Mobile Apps Showcase to answer questions, talk comics and show off a few of things we’ve been working on. From January 26th to the 28th comiXology can be found at booth 818-4J so be sure to stop by and say hello.

If you’re attending Macworld, be sure to swing by comiXology’s booth and thank them for the huge strides they’ve made for the comic book industry. There’s really no denying how much of a benefit the company has had. After all, they’ve managed to make comic books accessible to people who have never even set foot in a comic shop before. Here’s to a bright future for the small company. Given everything they’ve done so far, I’m excited for what they have in store for the future.
