The books are free to read forAmazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited subscribers, and can be purchased on those platforms as well. and are also available for purchase on Kindle and comiXology. Many are also available in print exclusively through Amazon, not in comic book stores, perhaps a glimpse of an Amazon-dominated comics industry future.

ComiXology Head of Content Chip Mosher said in the press release:

When we debuted the first wave of creator owned comiXology Original titles, we launched all five issues of the Superfreaks series in one day so readers could binge read the series at once. No one had ever done that before, and that’s just the tip of what we have planned. Today we are making history again with Goliath Girls which is releasing simultaneously in English and Japanese. Going forward we’ll continue to push the envelope with new ways to connect with readers. It’s great to be able to offer the over 100 million Prime members worldwide the opportunity to experience these great books.

Here’s some more stuff from the press release:

Alongside today’s content announcements comiXology debuted a convention exclusive comiXology Originals 2018 Preview Book, featuring story pages, creator bios and behind the scenes process sketches from current and upcoming comiXology Originals creator-owned series. The comiXology Originals 2018 Preview Book will be given away at comiXology’s panels and during creator signings at booth #2547 throughout Comic-Con International, which takes place at the San Diego Convention Center July 18-22 in San Diego, CA. At the booth fans can also receive a limited edition comiXology Originals enamel pin, free – small quantities of the pin will be available at the start of each day, first-come-first-served. ComiXology will also be hosting 10 panels at this year’s convention and during every panel limited quantities of signed Savage Game Print-On-Demand (POD) books along with other giveaways will be given out to attendees.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
