MILWAUKIE, OR, February 6–The wait is over! Since the release of Avatar: The Last Airbender—The Promise and the recent announcement of The Search, both of which directly follow the hit animated series, the anticipation of thousands of digital-comics fans has been high. Now these fans can follow Aang, Sokka, and Katara as they embark on exciting new adventures, direct from the Dark Horse Comics app!

Avatar: The Last Airbender is the newest addition to Dark Horse Digital. Combined, The Art of the Animated Series, The Lost Adventures, and The Promise have sold well over one hundred thousand copies. The digital release of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels is the latest development in an ongoing partnership between Nickelodeon and Dark Horse to bring fans the very best in Airbender books.

Dark Horse Comics launched its standalone comic-reader app and digital store on April 27, 2011, and has received incredible support from the continuously growing digital-comics fan base.

Since then, Dark Horse Digital has grown significantly in numbers and readership, featuring its most popular, best-selling titles, including Star Wars, Buffy, Serenity, Hellboy, Conan, and Mass Effect, as well as exclusive, digital-only comics, such as Falling Skies, Prototype 2, and Dragon Age. Dark Horse Digital also provides sales and discounts for its reader base on a weekly basis. It currently offers thousands of comics and is continuing to increase the digital availability of the Dark Horse back catalog.

Dark Horse Digital is available through all modern web browsers and features cloud storage in both the Android and iOS apps.

‘The Avengers’ Set To Pass $600 Million Domestic http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/the-avengers-set-to-pass-600-million-domestic-43225 http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/the-avengers-set-to-pass-600-million-domestic-43225#comments Sun, 24 Jun 2012 19:26:03 +0000 http://www.comicbooktherapy.com/?p=43225 The Avengers just keeps going and going and going, now just under the $600 million domestic mark! When is it going to stop?!

]]>
How many more weekends can The Avengers remain in the top ten? Two? Three? I’m curious what effect the release of The Amazing Spider-Man will have on The Avengers, if anything. The mega-blockbuster will be hitting $600 million in domestic gross in two weekends. Can The Dark Knight Rises even hope to catch it?!

Until “Avatar” came through and reset the record books, $600 million domestic was a seemingly unreachable milestone held aloft by “Titanic” as a tease to wannabe blockbusters. “Ha ha! You’ll never catch me!” There were a lot of pretenders to the throne before Avatar, most notably 2008′s “The Dark Knight” which leapt out of the gate and, for a while, seemed like it might grab the brass ring. Ultimately the cowled one faded down the stretch and the record was safe. Until Avatar. We all know what happened there with The Big A producing a new benchmark of $760 million domestic.

Still, $600 million retained a certain amount of luster what with the Titanic name and all attached to it.

Well, Jack and Rose, say hello to your new neighbors because Tony Stark and his friends are moving in next door with “The Avengers” set to pass $600 million sometime early this coming week. If Titanic hadn’t done a cash-grab 3D re-release earlier this year we’d be talking about a new #2 all-time domestic. As it is we’re talking about only the 3rd member of the $600 million club.

The Avengers isn’t stopping there however. The film has been holding up amazingly well in its golden days at the box office and could, conceivably, give the big boat that sinking feeling before all is said and done.
