Dynamite Entertainment and iVerse Media announced their agreement to digitally distribute select Dynamite comics. The comics will be available on Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch, and upcoming iPad, as well as Google’s Android Mobile Devices through iVerse Media’s digital distribution technology.
The first Dynamite title to be released will be Sherlock Holmes 1-5. Issue 1 will be released on February 24th, 2010 and will be free. Issues 2-5 will be released on a weekly basis thereafter, 1 issue per week, and will be 99 cents each.
Written by Leah Moore and John Reppion with reverence and a modern edge, Dynamite’s Sherlock Holmes also features interior artist Aaron Campbell, and striking John Cassaday covers to complete the Victorian mood. Issue #1 begins the “Trial of Sherlock Holmes” which presents the great detective with an all-too personal quandary and explores the nature of the man and his world with a mix of refined ambiance, carefully crafted mystery and chilling suspense!
Subsequent Dynamite titles to be released via iVerse later this year include:
* Super Zombies 1-5
* The Complete Dracula 1-5
* Terminator: Infinity 1-5
* Raise the Dead 1-4
