There's a banner crop of comics coming to ComiXology Unlimited, Amazon's all-you-can-read, flat-rate digital comics reading service, this August. 

Perhaps the centerpiece of the new additions is Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's 12-issue DC series All-Star Superman. Originally serialized from 2005 to 2008, this standalone limited series boils the timeless elements of Superman down into one of the most well-loved Man of Steel stories DC has published to date.

"The Man of Steel goes toe-to-toe with Bizarro, his oddball twin, and the new character Zibarro, also from the Bizarro planet," reads DC's synopsis. "And Superman faces the final revenge of Lex Luthor in the form of his own death! All-Star Superman is a spectacular reimagining of the Superman mythos, from the Man of Steel's origin to his greatest foes and beyond."

Another of Grant Morrison's DC limited series has been added: Joe the Barbarian, the Vertigo limited series with artist Sean Murphy.

On the Marvel front, the House of Ideas has added five complete series: A+X, Marvels, Old Man Quill, Mosaic, and Star Wars: Princess Leia.

Image Comics has gone a different route, adding over a dozen #1 issues as free samplers for people to go on and buy more issues. The #1s added are Blackbird, Bully Wars, Burnouts, Cold Spots, Crowded, Errand Boys, Man-Eaters, Hey Kids! Comics, Infinite Dark, The New World, and Murder Falcon.

There are also some deep dives into some other Image titles, with the first volume of Farmhand, and five volumes of Bomb Queen.

For fans of classic comics and impeccable illustration, Hermes Press has added Alex Toth's late '60s Zorro comics in one complete collection.

Check out the additions for both June 2020 and July 2020 here.

If you're a comiXology Unlimited subscriber (or you want to be), here's what you have to look forward to in August:
