Saga

A splash page from Saga

So you just got a shiny new tablet for Christmas, well now it’s time to load that sucker up.

Luckily, ComiXology is available on all of the major platforms, and it’s the best way to read comics on a tablet.

Even better news is that Image has been putting out some of the best comics on the stands (digital or otherwise) for the last several years…and a ton of them are available for free on Comixology.

The adventure begins in a spectacular DOUBLE-SIZED FIRST ISSUE!

The Manhattan Projects #1

What if the research and development department created to produce the first atomic bomb was a front for a series of other, more unusual, programs?

Welcome to THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, a brand new, ongoing, monthly comic from the creators of THE RED WING. Brought to you by award-winning writer JONATHAN HICKMAN and possibly the best new talent of the year, NICK PITARRA, THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS is a look at history through a darker, much stranger, lens.

Thief of Thieves #1

Skullkickers #0

No one knows who these two mercenaries are or where they came from. The only thing that’s clear is they’re two of most ornery, trouble-making warriors that’ve ever lived. It’s action-adventure comedy, sword & sorcery-style. Before their new comic series began, the Skullkickers kicked their way across two short stories in Image’s Eisner Award-winning Popgun anthology series. Discover these two tales and an exclusive sneak peek at the first issue of Skullkickers.
