Official Press Release

It’s been just over nine months since iVerse Media began distributing digital comics as individual applications on Apple’s iPhone OS, and today the company is proud to announce that the comics have been so popularthey have been downloaded more than ONE MILLION times.

“We’re very excited to has passed this milestone” said iVerse Media CEO Michael Murphey. “Obviously it would have been impossible without the amazing content partners that we have, and it clearly shows that there is a massive audience for digital comics on mobile devices.”

One Million individually downloaded comics is no small feat, but with so many comics on so many phones, it does beg the question – how are you going to keep all of that organized?

“When iVerse first launched, releasing the comics as individual applications was really the only way to go, but with the launch of iPhone 3.0 all of that changed.” Mr. Murphey continued. “Which is why today we’re very pleased to announce ‘iVerse Comics’ – a one app solution for buying and reading all of your digital comics in one place. The application is a full featured solution that provides an easy to understand way to buy and collect comics. We have a new enhanced reading experience we think you’re going to love, and best of all – all of your individually purchased Apps will be upgradeable into “iVerse Comics” for free.”

For complete details of the new “iVerse Comics” App you can visit the all-new http://www.iversecomics.com. The Application is complete and will be available for all devices running iPhone 3.0 OS in the coming weeks.

The iVerse Comics App is the first of many major announcements coming from iVerse over the next few months including new platforms, new content partners, and even new comics created exclusively for the iPhone from major publishers.

“It’s been a great first year so far.” Mr. Murphey concluded. “I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
