Marvel Selling Only Motion Comics in iTunes, Not Classics

MarvelMarvel said they will begin selling digital “In-Motion” comic books through iTunes later this month, according to Marvel’s Digital Media Division, which announced the debut of their Motion Comics products at the New York Comic Con last weekend.

The “Motion” Comics will feature animated “smart” panels and spoken dialog — not to be confused with Digital Comics of classic stories in print, which is a separate product available exclusively through Marvel.com’s Digital Comic Subscription service.

Assuming Motion Comics are sold as TV shows or movies, this clarification actually makes more sense since iTunes does not have a category for documents. However, if Marvel ever decided to open up sales of their digital comics, such a category would be necessary.

While a pricing structure for the Motion Comics hasn’t been released, Marvel does plan to sell the product though multiple online vendors — meaning Motion Comics would not be exclusive to iTunes, according to Marvel’s Digital Marketing and Sales Department.

An exact price point announcement probably won’t happen until all the specific financial details are worked out with each of the initial sellers.

Marvel did state that the Motion Comics would be available for free on their web site after a period of time had passed between their debut in online stores. How long that period of time will be has not yet be released.
