AICN COMICS NEWS: Zenescope Entertainment renews distribution agreement with comiXology, expands to Amazon’s Kindle Store! Plus get the JUNGLE BOOK #1 Comic Book for FREE!!!

Hey folks! Mark L. Miller aka Ambush Bug here. I'm usually too swamped with the AICN COMICS/AICN HORROR reviews plus the AICN COMICS Podcast to do Comics News, but I figured since this news comes with a gift to my readers at AICN, I'm willing to make an exception this once. Seems Zenescope Entertainment is expanding to Amazon's Kindle Store and renewing their contract with Comixology. Now more than ever, it's easier to get Zenescope comics like ROBYN HOOD, VAN HELSING, GRIMM FAIRY TALES, RETURN TO WONDERLAND, ESCAPE FROM MONSTER ISLAND, GRIMM TALES OF TERROR, and my own comic trilogy JUNGLE BOOK!

And speaking of JUNGLE BOOK, to celebrate this news, comiXology is offering up a free copy of JUNGLE BOOK #1 written by little old ME with art by my partner in crime, the amazing Carlos Granda (who worked with me on the PIROUETE comic)!

To get a FREE COMIC, all you have to do is follow this comiXology link and then follow the instructions below:

Sign-in to their comiXology account or create a new account if you do not have one. (Please note this code can only be redeemed on the web and it is only active until 11:50pm, March 10, 2015).

After you sign in, you will be redirected to the Redeem page where you will need to enter the Code: ZenJB1 in the empty box and hit the “Redeem” button. JUNGLE BOOK #1 will then automatically be added to your library.

Then you can find your new JUNGLE BOOK comic in the “My Books” tab under “Recently Purchased!" So while you're waiting for Favreau's JUNGLE BOOK Movie to come out, you can read the first issue of my own JUNGLE BOOK! (and if you like that issue, the rest of the three series, written by ME, are available too!)

Here's the official press release!

March 9, 2016 — New York, NY— Zenescope Entertainment, comiXology and Amazon announced today an expanded and renewed distribution agreement to sell Zenescope’s digital comics and collections across the comiXology platform and expand the distribution of Zenescope’s library to Amazon’s Kindle Store.
