NEW YORK, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 360 Public Relations has been selected as public relations agency of record by comiXology, the fast-growing, cloud-based digital comics platform available across the iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 and the Web. ComiXology revolutionized an industry with its innovative shopping and immersive reading experiences, the latter driven by the company's patent pending Guided View™ technology.

360PR's campaign kicked off in March with the announcement of comiXology Submit, an easy to use self-publishing portal that enables independent comic book creators to reach comiXology's global audience of comic fans, alongside works from major publishers already available on the platform. 360PR will continue to bring comiXology's innovations to consumers, from the already passionate comic devotee to the new reader and comic novice. The account will be led by 360PR's New York office.
