Apparently owning the biggest ebook brand isn’t enough for Amazon, who today acquired the biggest e-comic company, ComiXology. This is likely to expand its library of comics for Kindle.
ComiXology also has a number of very popular Android comic book reading apps, and its Guided View technology allows users to easily read and flip through comics. This will likely be integrated into the Kindle at some point down the road. Details about the acquisition have yet to be released, and its expected that the deal will close in Q2 of this year. Hit the break for the press release!
