Marvel Comics App Review
The Marvel Comics iPad App is a comic book reader developed by Comixology that lets you read your favorite Marvel comics from your iPad.
The app allows you to download directly from the Marvel comic book store and seamlessly flip through comics by sliding across the screen. The store itself is set up very similar like iTunes and has 500+ comics to choose from. You can access the comic book store directly through the app and download any comic for $1.99. All the classics are there, from: Spiderman, X-Men, Hulk, Avengers, Fantastic 4, Iron Man, and more.
To commemorate the launch of the iPad, Marvel is offering free downloads of the following comics:
- Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #546
- Fantastic Four (1997) #570
- New Avengers (2004) #1
- Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #547
- Hulk (2008) #1
- New Avengers (2004) #2
The app allows you to read through your favorite comics one at a time and offers an excellent glimpse into the iPad’s reading capabilities.
