We caused a little stir with InkyPen when it was announced as the first global media app exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. Now we have somehow managed to assemble a never before seen catalogue of diverse comics with an all you can read experience.
InkyPen 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.
It turned out a lot of us liked comics (some superhero, some manga, some webcomics) so we 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 no less than 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
