Graphic.ly (http://www.graphic.ly), a community and digital content delivery platform for comics and other forms of publishing, has acquired iFanboy (http://www.ifanboy.com), a community/news/audio/video site for the comics and graphic novel enthusiast.
With the acquisition, iFanboy becomes a division of Graphic.ly, and will be integrated into the Graphic.ly Web site, as well as into the various platforms and applications Graphic.ly runs on, such as the iPhone, Adobe AIR and Windows 7. Alas, the Mac isn’t mentioned.
With the acquisition, iFanboy’s founders will join Graphic.ly, as well as keep their responsibilities for the iFanboy site and community. Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan will lead content creation for iFanboy and overall publisher and creator relations, while Ron Richards will oversee product and business development for iFanboy.
The acquisition has closed, and integration of the sites will be finished within 30 days.
