Making the rounds on the web today and coming to us via The Beat, Archie Comics has teamed with Madefire to create a new digital comics app that offers readers the chance to buy single issues or pay for an all-access "Archie Unlimited" service that will allow them to read as many comics as they want. That means, if you're a fan of comics like "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," you could read up to three issues in a single year for one "unlimited" price, provided Archie is feeling up to producing that many! The app will also enable Archie to create digital-only content, though no word on whether that will be available at a discount or whether it will require Kickstarter funding.

Ever humble, Archie CEO Jon Goldwater reminded everyone how innovative Archie is, saying, "A lot of people forget we were the first comic book company to go day and date with our books – meaning we provided the titles to comic shops, bookstores and digital simultaneously. That's proof positive that Archie has always been invested in the digital space, long before our competitors realized its value. Archie has always strived to expand our presence, not limit it – we want our books available to everyone however they choose to consume them, from comic shops to bookstores to newsstands to apps to streaming." We can't say we disagree with that sentiment, so, snark aside: good for them!

The app is available on iOS, with claims of an Android app coming soon.
