The number of  TV shows comic adaptations  on the handy device seems to be increasing too, with The Middle Man and Spartacus: Blood and Sand comics giving fans of the live action shows to follow their digital counterparts. There’s a short article here on the topic, even though they do describe X-Men as “animation influenced.” Oh well. At least comics are being promoted in various formats these days and it’s not just the sometimes intimidating/bewildering LCS as the only option for getting your mitts on some sequential art goodness.

“David and Steve created an innovative and exciting comic at zuda.com with High Moon,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. “They are a perfect choice to explore the possibilities of great storytelling on our platform, too. The first chapter starts with a bang, and we fully expect it to be a reason for people to check in with the app every Thursday, at least for the next thirteen weeks!”
