Official Press Release

Image Comics is pleased to introduce a completely redesigned Website, which includes many additional features and improvements. ComiXology, who created and continues to maintain the Image App for digital comics, has once again partnered with the publisher for the redesign of their Website.

Some of those exciting features and improvements include:
•A new online database which will help fans search for their favorite comics and discover new favorites by allowing them to search by creator, series title, or even genre.
•A live RSS feed, inviting fans to keep abreast of the latest Image Comics news and participate in the Image Comics community via Twitter and Facebook.
•A section devoted to digital comics for sale, including some downloads that are even available for free! Read all of Images Comics digital comics at comics.imagecomics.com.
•The Image Comics Forums, which will continue to give creators, retailers, and fans alike an online home for questions and discussion.

“A company's Website represents your business when you can’t, so Image took proactive measures with us to ensure that their online presence represents them well,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. “Their new site functionality will ensure that all of their comics are easily discoverable by their community, and allow them to directly interact with them as well.”

"Imagecomics.com has been due for an overhaul for some time, but we're all extremely happy with the latest iteration of our site," added Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. "How comics are marketed, sold and read continues to change at a rapid pace, so there's always more work to be done, but the comiXology crew have given us a fantastic framework to move forward with."

Some of the features that Image Comics fans can look forward to in coming months will include:
•An exclusive retailers-only section that will offer assets and information for retailers to assist them in sales, and will require a log-in code to enter.
•A section for libraries and educators that will offer assets, plans and information to aid them in their quest to get people reading and enjoying comics.
The new Website at www.imagecomics.com is live now, so please have a look, and you may just discover your new favorite comics there!
