BREAKING: Amazon Acquires Digital Comics Retailer, Comixology

Comixology co-founder and CEO, David Steinberger has just posted a message on the site revealing their acquisition of the digital comic site by Amazon.com. He wrote, “We have long had the goal of making every person on the planet a comics fan. With Amazon’s help, this crazy goal is more possible than ever before. With the Kindle, Amazon has shown a passion for reinventing the reading experience, just like comiXology has shown for comics and graphic novels.” 

“Amazon and comiXology share a passion for reinventing reading in a digital world,” said David Naggar, Amazon Vice President, Content Acquisition and Independent Publishing, through a press release on their tumblr, “We’ve long admired the passion comiXology brings to changing the way we buy and read comics and graphic novels. We look forward to investing in the business, growing the team, and together, bringing comics and graphic novels to even more readers.”

Too early to know what this will mean overall (for instance, less money for creators) but what are your first reactions?
