The US manga publisher today released 107 volumes from 18 series for the Nook Colour and Nook Tablet e-readers, expanding its digital service.
Comics from the Shojo Beat, Shonen Sunday and VIZ Signature imprints are available, priced between $4.99 and $9.99. Each title reads in the traditional right-to-left manga format.
"NOOK Tablet and NOOK Colour are ideal devices for our customers to enjoy manga in stunning high resolution colour that virtually makes the action leap off the page," said Barnes & Noble executive Theresa Horner.
"We're excited to work with VIZ Media to offer Nook customers access to some of the most popular manga titles available in North America."
Viz Media's popular Shonen Jump series Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece do not appear among the launch titles.
