Viz Media's "Weekly Shonen Jump" Expands to Comixology and Kindle Store

Digital magazine's availability expands from Viz Media apps

After years of wondering whether Viz Media would ever make its sizable catalog of manga available outside of its own Android app and website, the publisher has finally taken the first steps towards cross-platform availability by launching its Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine through Amazon-owned Comixology and the Kindle Store.

 WSJ 8/31 cover

The expansion of Weekly Shonen Jump availability also means that international readers will also be able to enjoy the magazine outside of North America on these platforms. The U.K., Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand are in the first wave of countries that will get access to the English-language version of the popular anthology, with this week's issue and back issues now available through both platforms.
