Arrow digital comics season 2.5

Marc Guggenheim shared the cover of Issue #2 in the Arrow digital comics (referred to as Season 2.5 as part of the tv show tie-in) and noted that the new “season” for these comics will be available via ComiXology starting September 1, 2014.  This seems to be prior to the release date of October 8th that DC Comics has up on its site, so I’m wondering if it’s some kind of exclusive “early bird” kind of deal going on with ComiXology.  Anyway, wanted to share it for people interested in grabbing it as early as possible.

Okay, anon, I’m back with an answer! I tweeted ComiXology about subscribing to the Arrow Season 2.5 digital comics. 

I asked:

Hi! Release date I know… but there’s no page on the site for subscribing early, right? I’m not blind & missing it? Thanks!

Their (very quick) reply was: Not at this time, but we’ll look into it. Thanks!

so there ya go.  We’re not missing it.  It’s not there yet.  Hopefully soon.  I’ll keep an eye on the site and soon as I see a page go up, I’ll be sure to link.

hi! are the arrow 2.5 comics free? how are they being released?

Nope, the Arrow digital comics called “Season 2.5” are not free.  They are being released as digital comics first, then (3 digital comics) combined to form 1 print comic that will be sold.  Then, much later, they’ll be combined into print anthology collections (probably Vol 1 and Vol 2 like they did last year) and sold in that format as well.

I bought my previous Arrow tv show tie-in digital comics from Amazon.  I assume I’ll be able to do the same thing this time around.  You can also buy them from ComiXology.

You can find the covers that have been released so far at DC Comics just so you’re sure you’re buying the right thing. Be sure to scroll all the way down the page and you’ll see covers for digital comic volumes 1 and 2 that have been added to the gallery so far.

anonymous asked:

What does a digital comic mean? Is it a cartoon? And where can I sign up??

A digital comic, also called an “eComic,” means a comic book that is released digitally rather than printed.  As the TV Guide article mentioned, you can purchase each release through several different sources, like readdcentertainment.com, via the DC Comics app, the iBookstore, Nook Store and Kindle Store (so that means Barnes & Noble and Amazon).  You just find them, pay, and download straight to whatever device you have.  Like I have a Kindle Fire, so I purchase from Amazon.

Now season 1’s digital comics were eventually released in print form anthologies (Volumes 1 and 2) but I don’t know that they included all the digital comics.  I haven’t found them in a store yet to actually flip through.

The Season 2.5 digital comics won’t be released until September.  So once it is, I’m sure you’ll see lots of links floating around directing people where to actually buy.

Hey Anon! I know, this is tough to keep all straight, isn’t it?  I glanced at the Comixology website and the previous digital comic series did have a subscribe option.  Be sure to read their little pop up disclaimer box on subscriptions, btw.  I’m trying to find the page on their site for the new 2.5 series.  I don’t see it there, so I’m thinking maybe they don’t have a page up for it yet? I don’t know.  you know what, let me pop off a question on twitter and see if I can find out.
