Posted by at 6:52 am on June 22, 2011

comiXology and IDW Publishing have announced a partnership to bring Transformers comics to Android and the Web as the battle for Earth between Autobots and Deceptiocons rages on. Through this strategic undertaking, comics fans everywhere will now be able to experience every metal crunching battle of more than 200 Transformers comics using comiXology’s Guided View Technology, enabling the reader to transition smoothly between different comic panels, mimicking the reading experience of a traditional print comic book.

“Working with IDW, one of the largest and most esteemed comic publishers in the industry, to launch their entire Transformers comic library on Android is truly an honor,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. “IDW has really elevated Transformers comics to a fan-favorite that our community has been waiting for.”

All of the Transformers comics will be available on the comiXology Android and Web platforms starting Thursday, July 23rd and will range in price from $.99 to $1.99. All purchases on the Android or Web will sync across all devices and platforms supported by comiXology.

“It’s been very important to IDW to offer our Transformers line to digital comics fans everywhere,” stated Jeff Webber, IDW’s Director of ePublishing. “We’ve always been impressed with comiXology’s strength in offering comics across multiple platforms, including Android and the Web. David and his team have put together an awesome offering. And just wait till you see how we kick it off when the doors open Thursday! I think we’re going to make a lot of Transformers fans happy this week.”

Today’s announcement comes just days after comiXology exceeded the one million mark of comic book downloads on the Android platform.
