The Dark Horse Digital Store Opens for Business on Wednesday, April 27th!


Believe it or not, but Dark Horse Comics announced today that their digital comics app will launch one week from today, on April 27th!

I think the saying that most aptly summarizes how many people probably feel about this news is “better late than never!”

The App, which was announced at NYCC in October 2010, was set to launch in January 2011. However, due to undisclosed reasons, the app’s launch date was delayed a number of times, but it looks like Dark Horse are now ready for launch! I have to say, this is the first digital comics app that I’m actually excited about!
