Online retailer Inc. said it will soon start publishing original comics through its new imprint, Jet City Comics.

The name is a nod to Seattle's historical ties to the development of jets in aviation. It's also a sign of growing demand for original comics and graphic novels.

Jet City issues will publish on Kindle as stand-alone comics, serialized comics released over multiple episodes and bundled graphic novels, with print editions available at and other comic retailers.

The first issue of “Symposium,” the first original Foreworld comic, was released Tuesday. More titles are due in October, including George R.R. Martin's “Meathouse Man” and Hugh Howey's “Wool.”
