Heroic Publishing’s digital comics are making the jump to ComiXology in 2014, beginning with Alter Ego #1.
Heroic is the publisher known for such titles as Liberty Girl, Flare, Champions, Chrissie Clause and various other Golden Age inspired titles.
Here’s the official press release about the new endeavor:
Alter Ego #1 Spotlighted in November Comixology Promo
The Heroes of Heroic Publishing are headed to the #1 digital comics service. Heroic, the California-based publisher of FLARE, CHAMPIONS, and others has been publishing since 1987 and is best known for their line-up of self-assured, sexy super-heroines. Comixology is the leading distributor of digital comics in the United States, with a significant worldwide presence too. So far, titles including ALTER EGO, CHAMPIONS, and CHRISSIE CLAUS have been approved for Comixology distribution. More of Heroic’s extensive library will roll out through Comixology in 2014.
The first Heroic comic available, ALTER EGO #1 is priced at only 99 cents. Created by legendary writer and editor Roy Thomas, with co-writer Dann Thomas and artist Ron Harris, ALTER EGO is the story of teenager Rob Lindsay, who finds a magic mask that transports him to a world where comic book super-heroes of the Golden Age are real. Drawing upon Roy Thomas’ experience a co-founder of comics fandom and as the top writer of characters of the 1940s at Marvel and DC, the landmark series celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2012 with a brand new issue (#5) which paid homage to the crime comics of the 1950s.
“We’re definitely looking forward to working with ComiXology, and eventually bringing our entire line of classic comics, as well as new upcoming issues to a new audience of digital comic book readers” said Heroic publisher Dennis Mallonee.
Heroic is represented for digital rights by licensing agency Grand Design Communications.
