Dark Horse Comics has announced that the popular ALIENS, PREDATOR, and AVP comics series are now available for digital download on IGN Entertainment's Direct2Drive.
For $1.99, customers can now purchase digital copies of individual ALIENS, PREDATOR, and AVP comics that virtually mimic the first run of each issue by featuring the original cover art and trade dress.
Fans of these comics can now enjoy classic stories by the likes of industry luminaries Mark Verheiden, Mike Mignola, Chris Claremont, and Andrew Vachss from the comfort of their own computers.
"In celebration of the December release of AVP: REQUIEM, we thought launching our maiden voyage into the paid online comics universe with the AVP line made perfect sense," said Nick McWhorter, Special Projects Manager for Dark Horse Comics' Custom Publishing program. "The experience that IGN brings to the table with digital distribution through Direct2Drive makes for the perfect match and we couldn't be more excited about our new endeavor."
Sutton Trout, VP of Digital Content for IGN Entertainment, said, "We continue to expand Direct2Drive's product offering to ensure that our users have access to the most comprehensive collection of comics, video games, and entertainment content on the Web -- and Dark Horse is a welcome addition."
In addition, DarkHorse.com has recently added an AVP ZONE where fans can get the latest in news, interviews, and general musings on all things AVP: www.darkhorse.com/zones/avp/index.php.
