Amidst the opening of New York Comic-Con 2013, news arrived that Avatar Press, publisher of Garth Ennis’ groundbreaking horror series Crossed, announced an exclusive digital distribution agreement with ComiXology, the revolutionary cloud-based digital comics platform with more than 40,000 comics and graphic novels that have seen over 200 million downloads to date. The multi-year exclusive agreement covers Avatar Press’ English Language single-issue catalog.

Judge Dredd goes digital this weekend as  2000AD have released 20 volumes of the best-selling Judge Dredd Complete Case Files graphic novel series on their iOS app (available to download here) and we’ve got a fantastic 20-page Judge Dredd digital preview for you to download.

Writer Grant Morrison is a divisive figure at the best of times, garnering passionate fandom and fervent derision in equal measure. For some he is the psychedelic master of twisted fairy tales, the writer of The Invisibles, Doom Patrol and Animal Man who is so adored he warrants his own convention. For others he is a pretentious, egomaniac whose long winded, rambling writing lacks the depth and subtlety of his big name contemporaries like Mark Millar Brian Bendis or Garth Ennis.

As with all ‘celebrity writer’ books, your opinion of Happy will be shaped by your opinion on Morrison. For those in the former camp it will no doubt be viewed as another tour de force that exhibits the same anarchic sense of wit and invention that have instilled his other titles. However for those, who fall into the latter camp it is much more of a challenging read, but one that may surprise even his most ardent haters.
