So, our friends over at Action Lab sent over this pretty huge announcement:
Action Lab Entertainment is proud to announce that Beginning with the Action Lab hit, F1rst Hero and the Action Lab Danger Zone sexy mega hit, Zombie Tramp, all of their titles will now be released as full issue, digital first offerings through Comixology.
The entire catalog from both Action Lab and their mature readers imprint, Action Lab: Danger Zone will be available DRM Free as part of Comixology’s Digital Ownership Initiative.
Single issues will be $0.99 during the first two weeks of release, before returning to their regular price of $1.99.. In addition, books will be timed to release digitally the same month they are offered in Diamond Distribution’s retailer catalog, Previews, giving comics fans a taste of what we do and driving them to comic shops nationwide.
I love this move Action Lab. Not only do I firmly believe that $0.99 is the magic price point for digital comics, but I think that having titles available first digitally could actually boost print sales. It gets the brand out in front of people, and if the product is good, print comic readers will want the book for their collection. There are plenty of comics that I've read digitally for review and then went out and bought the hard copy. This could be a big move for Action Lab.
