InkyPen Arrives on Nintendo Switch Today

InkyPen - All you can read comics on Nintendo Switch™


The comic book subscription app exclusive to Nintendo Switch™

InkyPen caused a bit of a stir when it was announced as the first global media app exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. Now they’ve managed to assemble a never before seen catalogue of comics with an all you can read experience. I first talked about InkyPen back in August, when it was announced. The company was founded by a group of indie game developers in the rainiest city in Europe (Bergen, Norway). Starting in a game collective office space between a bunch of hobbyists and indie games company Rain Games, a discussion about lack of a (good) ‘Netflix for comics’ turned into something more.

Since so many of them also liked comics (some superhero, some manga, some webcomics) they made a small self-funded company called InkyPen to make it happen. US comics, European comics, webcomics and even a little manga – a large library of comics is available on InkyPen. The selection includes series such as Judge Dredd, Transformers, Robotech, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Metabarons, Pathfinder and Battlestar Galactica.

InkyPen also includes comic adaptations of popular video game franchises such as Dark Souls, Dishonored, Tekken, and Assassin’s Creed. Classic strips such as Calvin and Hobbes are also available. We continue to talk to major publishers and content creators and very much look forward to ramping up even more after launch. InkyPen’s goal is to create the best All-You-Can-Eat subscription service for comic book fans of all kinds: newcomers and veterans alike.

“To have all these brilliant content creators and publishers trust us so early is very humbling. We’ve worked hard to get here but this is just the beginning!” – Ronan Huggard, InkyPen CEO

InkyPen is now out today in the US and in Europe, only in English

(more languages to come in 2019).

I'm one opinionated, based geek. I try to steer this tiny ship and can often be heard monthly on the Comic Book Page Previews Spotlight podcast with several fellow "comic book nerds." Follow me on Twitter @ChrisBraly. My preferred adjectives are brilliant/beautiful.
