LibraryPass and TKO Studios Announce Day & Date Access for Libraries and Schools Through Comics Plus
LibraryPass, Inc. has announced a distribution agreement with TKO Studios to make their entire digital catalog available to libraries and schools through Comics Plus, including day & date access to new releases. With Comics Plus, readers can access thousands of digital comics, graphic novels, and manga through their school or library—with unlimited simultaneous access for online and offline reading.
Founded in 2018, TKO Studios garnered immediate attention with a debut roster of well-known creators and an innovative “binge release model” that simultaneously published entire series in periodical and collected editions, in print and digital formats. With popular creative teams like Eisner nominee Sentient’s Jeff Lemire & Gabriel Walta, The Banks’ Roxane Gay and Ming Doyle, and Sara’s Garth Ennis & Steve Epting, to new all-ages offerings like Djeliya, by Juni Ba, and Scales & Scoundrels, by Sebastian Girner & Galaad, TKO has also become known for simply publishing great comics.
“We’re very excited to welcome TKO Studios to the Comics Plus family,” said Guy LeCharles Gonzalez, LibraryPass’ Chief Content Officer. “Not only do they have a compelling and growing catalog featuring notable creators who will be of great interest to our customers, but they truly support libraries’ efforts to engage readers of all kinds, regardless of where, how, or when they choose to read. Offering day & date availability to libraries via Comics Plus ensures libraries can meet demand for their titles at their peak, not just as backlist readalikes.”
“LibraryPass has a great model and platform that provides easy accessibility, value, and a wealth of content to readers of all ages, and to comics readers in particular, via Comics Plus,” said Marc Visnick, TKO Studios VP of Sales & Business Development. “LibraryPass provides an important range of services to support and complement K-12, public, and academic library users, and shares our mission to nurture readers with diverse and compelling content.”
