comiXology has been sold to Amazon in a move that should not surprise anyone. comiXology happens to be a digital comic book services with a ton of users. Here is what comiXology CEO David Steinberger had to say about all this:
With Amazon’s help, this crazy goal is more possible than ever before. With the Kindle, Amazon has shown a passion for reinventing the reading experience, just like comiXology has shown for comics and graphic novels.
ComiXology will retain its identity as an Amazon subsidiary and we’re not anywhere near done “taking comics further.” We are confident that – with Amazon by our side, who shares our desire for innovation and a relentless focus on customers – we’ve only just begun.
For its part, Amazon is expected to find a way to make Kindle and comiXology work together. We will know more about that in the near future.
