Dark Horse announces launch titles for its homegrown digital app

Dark Horse Digital ComicsBack in October Dark Horse Comics announced that they would release their own homegrown proprietary bookshelf application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, as well as on the Web in January 2011. With the release date approaching, Dark Horse has posted on their blog a list of all the comics that will be available at launch.

The list includes many of their top titles, including Hellboy, BPRD, Umbrella Academy and Conan; the only thing I noticed that was missing that kind of surprised me was the current Buffy series (Fray, which starred a future Slayer in the Buffyverse, will be available) but maybe they have bigger plans for it at some point.

Individual issues will be available for $1.49 each, and they’ll also bundle series together (ComicsAlliance has the price list). Dark Horse also noted that in February you can “expect to see select issues of your favorite comics appearing online the same time they’re released in stores.”

It’s also worth noting that comics bought via one client can be viewed on all of them. “Once you buy a DH digital comic, whether on the web or on any mobile device, you may access that title from any client,” Dark Horse Chief Information Officer Dale LaFountain told us back in October. “In other words, the purchase is associated with your account, not the device.”

Check out the list of launch titles after the jump.

I think comic publishers should realize that millions of people are already reading digital comics without a $500 entry fee and they get a superior format.
