How cool is this? Comixology announced today at SDCC, that many of their titles—from select publishers—are now DRM FREE! This means you can download those precious issues in glorious PDF or CBZ formats.
But the most coolest thing is that D4VE is among those titles—as are all of the amazing comics from Monkeybrain.
So if you haven’t yet checked it out, head on over there and get the entire five-issue series of D4VE for less than #5—and you can download them, DRM free.
Show NotesDark Horse Addiction is back again!Leo and Charles get back into the swing of things by discussing White Suits #4 as the main topic, and getting a discussion of non-Dark Horse D4VE in as well, thanks to some
Big, huge thanks to Leo and Charles for all the D4VE love on their newest episode of Dark Horse Addiction*. Super freaking cool. Give it a listen, it’s a great show, and there’s some much deserved love for Monkeybrain in there.
*Note: D4VE has no affiliation with the fine folks at Dark Horse, but we appreciate it so much nonetheless—we’re invading the airspaces muahaha.

D4VE #5 by Ryan Ferrier and Valentin Ramon is some of the most fun action comedy I’ve seen in comics in ages. I loved every second of this one and hope to see so much more from both these talented storytellers. Kickin’ Ace!
I know you’re aching for more of Valentin Ramon’s art (who the heck isn’t?) so here’s a pin-up the D4VE maestro did for DOC UNKNOWN.
If you’re unfamiliar (which you shouldn’t be), DOC UNKNOWN is the crazy-cool hit comic from writer Fabian Rangel Jr. and artist Ryan Cody. Check out the first four issues right here on comixology—I know they’ve got more on the way. It’s very great comics.
ICYMI: D4VE #5 is out now! Get the complete five-issue series for 0.99 each…that’s over 100 pages of monster-punching, robo-jerkin’, mid-life crisis havin’ comics goodness for less than #5.
Please please please please please!! I want D4VE printed!! I need a tpb!! An hardcover version would be even better, because fuck it!! D4VE deserve a damn hardcover!!! PLEASE!! Something printed!! Whatever you want but something!! And I know Monkeybrain is printing some stuff, so, PRINT-THE-JOBSDAMN-D4VE!! love you guys
Thank you very much!
