Press Release from iVerse Media
Digital comics provider iVerse Media announced today they will begin distributing titles from award-winning graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment. With an outstanding catalog of comics and graphic novels—including the Eisner Award-winning Mouse Guard and Return of the Dapper Men; fan-favorite series such as Rust, Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, and Fraggle Rock; and new releases such as Cursed Pirate Girl and Iron: Or, the War After—Archaia will be the latest publisher to join the rapidly expanding offerings of the Comics Plus app from iVerse.
iVerse Media founder and CEO Michael Murphey said, “Archaia has established a brilliant quality and aesthetic of storytelling that we are proud to be associated with. With Mouse Guard leading the way, our Comics Plus: Library Edition app will have an even greater value for the library market.”
In addition to the Comics Plus app, Archaia’s titles will be made available to librarians and their patrons everywhere via the Comics Plus: Library Edition app, which makes thousands of high-quality titles accessible to school and library patrons on any device, anywhere, and at any time. Brodart Company is the library reseller representing iVerse for the library market.
”We’re excited to partner with iVerse as our strategy this year is to expand digital outreach to additional platforms and markets, and with iVerse, we are doing both,” said Archaia President Jack Cummins. “We are particularly thrilled to be part of the launch of the Library Edition. We have sought to continually offer quality content to young readers and we’ve always valued our relationship and presence within schools and libraries. This platform will help stimulate a new audience of young readers through the growing array of everyday digital devices.” Archaia titles will begin appearing on the Comics Plus app in March.
