InkyPen is a New Digital Subscription Service That Delivers Comics to the Switch

Comics from Valiant, IDW, and more.

Digital comic books from major publishers are coming to the Nintendo Switch thanks to a new app called InkyPen.

InkyPen is a new subscription service where for $7.99 a month, users can have access to more than 10,000 digital comics from publishers like IDW, Dynamite, Valiant, Humanoids, and more. Marvel and DC comics have similar subscription services for their own books so it's unlikely we'll see Batman or Spider-Man on InkyPen anytime soon.

The app is being developed for the Switch by a team of "comic book enthusiasts" from Norway and Luxembourg who have worked in the video game industry. "We have no intention of selling content piecemeal, there are other places for that. We're bringing an all-you-can-read model to the international community," said InkyPen CEO Ronan Huggard in a press release.

Valiant comics is the house of some of the biggest non-Marvel or DC superheroes in comic books including characters like Bloodshot and Faith. Meanwhile, IDW is known for its vast library of licensed books including Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Star Wars.

The InkyPen app will be available to download on the Nintendo Switch in November 2018.
