Graphic.ly, which offers a digital content delivery platform for print comics book publishers, has purchased 10-year-old online comics book community iFanboy. Terms of the acquisition were not announced, although in a message on his site iFanboy co-founder Josh Flanagan says, “We are most emphatically not rich now.” iFanboy features comic book reviews, podcasts, and news — and Flanagan says the site will now be able to offer more content.
The deal comes less than two months after Graphic.ly raised $1.2 million in a first round of funding. The company says the purchase will let it integrate its platform “into the fandom community.” Graphic.ly’s clients include Disney’s Marvel (NYSE: DIS). More in the release.
