The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be a comic book series, with a digital-only launch.
Its first arc will be published in July 2019, as part of the DC Comics Digital First initiative.
That’s right, a series of four comic books published in digital form.
That is a first.
Digital comics have become the dominant way of publishing comics, which are published digitally at the expense of physical editions.
The comic book industry is already a big business.
It’s worth $1.8 trillion a year, according to the Entertainment Software Association, which counts more than 400 publishers, retailers, distributors, publishers, writers, artists, creators, and other stakeholders as part its members.
And this is just the start of the comics business.
The big publishers and digital distribution companies are looking to increase the amount of revenue they can generate.
The biggest digital comic publishers, Image Comics and Marvel, together account for about $4.4 billion in annual revenue, according a recent report by Bloomberg.
“The digital market is going to be the dominant one in the next few years,” said Brian Reed, CEO of Reed Business Group, a digital media and entertainment consulting firm.
“We think that digital comics will be the next great thing to hit the market.”
The digital comics industry has been growing, too.
Image, for instance, has seen its digital comics sales rise from $3.7 billion in 2016 to $12.5 billion in 2018, and it expects to continue to grow.
And the company recently reported that digital-focused comics are now the most popular genre for comic book readers, which means there’s a lot of opportunity for the digital-comics industry to grow and take over the industry.
But Reed says it’s important for the comic book community to keep in mind that the digital comics business is still very much nascent.
“There’s no one magic formula for the future of the comic industry,” he said.
“But we do see the potential for the medium to grow.”
Reed says the comics industry needs to keep the emphasis on the creative side of the business.
“If you think about the art and storytelling side of comics, that’s what makes the comics so special,” he says.
I’m really excited about the future and the challenges we’ll face as we build this industry.”
