Archie Comics Releases Now Day-And-Date With ComiXology Unlimited

by James Ferguson

Now this is an interesting move. Publisher Archie Comics has announced it is expanding its availability on ComiXology beginning today so all new titles will be available through ComiXology Unlimited the same day they are available in print. This means that subscribers to ComiXology Unlimited (at the low price of $5.99 a month) can now access brand new comics for no additional charge. This includes the newly released Sabrina: Something Wicked #3.

Up until this point, publishers would make their books available after a grace period of sorts, allowing digital sales and direct market sales to go through first. I am very curious as to how this will pan out as it certainly provides more eyeballs to Archie titles, but does it come at the expense of any other sales?
