Star Trek fans are now able to read their favorite Star Trek comics on the BlackBerry.
Beginning this week, BlackBerry users can start their comic reading with IDW Publishing’s Star Trek: Countdown graphic novel.
“We’re excited to bring our comics line up to BlackBerry users,” said Jeff Webber, IDW’s Director of ePublishing. “Each BlackBerry app collects an entire series into an individual graphic novel, and people can sample part of the story before they decide to purchase. With BlackBerry, we’ve expanded the audience for our digital comics to include users of one of the largest mobile platforms in the world.”
“Proud to be the first major publisher of comics available to BlackBerry users, IDW’s applications fully leverage the capabilities of BlackBerry devices to deliver the highest quality user experience. Each IDW comic features panel-by-panel viewing and scroll bar navigation, plus built-in news feeds that bring fans all the latest IDW news and updates.
For the BlackBerry comic applications, IDW partnered with Sweet Caesar, a premier BlackBerry developer. “We have work closely with IDW to bring the world of digital comics to the BlackBerry platform and to deliver the best possible user experience”, said Bogdan Chmielewski, Sweet Caesar’s Chief Technology Officer. “We are looking forward to working with IDW on upcoming titles and continuing to enhance the application based on consumer feedback.”
IDW comics are currently available through the BlackBerry App World.
