LibraryPass, Inc. has announced a distribution partnership with Image Comics to make a selection of its titles from their digital catalog available to libraries and schools through Comics Plus.
“With Comics Plus, readers can access thousands of digital comics, graphic novels, and manga through their school or library—with unlimited simultaneous access for online and offline reading.”
Chloe Ramos, Image Comics’ Book Market & Library Sales Manager. had this to say about this new deal:
“Image Comics is thrilled to partner with LibraryPass in bringing our diverse catalog of comics and graphic novels to libraries and schools across the nation. We were particularly excited about offering our books through Comics Plus, because of its innovative unlimited access model, which we feel is the future of equitable digital library circulation. We’ve long said that comics are for everybody and with LibraryPass, we can really bring everybody comics, with no waiting and no hold lists!”

Personally, this may be a small news item for many, but for those making valuable use of their local libraries digital content, this is great news. Access to some of the best comic book series and collections, and from a plethora of different genres, and all for free, can only be a good thing.
