The team behind SciFiNow, one of Android Magazine’s sister publications, has today announced the release of Uncanny Comics, the first digital-only comics magazine designed specifically for the growing digital comics market.
Available on Apple’s Newsstand from only £0.69/$0.99 and released 13 times a year, Uncanny Comics’ fresh and fun coverage of the best new and classic comics directly drives readers to the Comixology and Marvel Unlimited apps and acts as the perfect gateway to the often overwhelming wealth of content now available on smartphone and tablet.
“With superhero movies at the height of their powers and digital comics opening up the marketplace to new readers, lapsed readers and geeks who simply can’t get enough, the world was crying out for Uncanny Comics,” said Editor James Hoare.
“This astounding new launch celebrates all that’s weird and wonderful about comic-books, and what’s more, once you’ve read the feature, interview or preview; you can then read the comic itself!”
“It wasn’t enough that Uncanny Comics look good and be full of incredible art,” said Art Editor Stephen Williams. “We worked to make Uncanny Comics a part of the adventure, echoing the bold and brash design aesthetic of Silver Age comics and experimenting with the layout to create a true digital publishing experience that really shines on iPhone and iPad.”
Developed by the team behind SciFiNow, Uncanny Comics follows the groundbreaking subscription model pioneered by Imagine Publishing’s Brain Dump and builds upon a strong digital year for the SciFiNow brand which has seen traffic to SciFiNow.co.uk increase by over 150 per cent.
