A Facebook Comment About Digital comic Book Readers.
OK, so far I've tried comixology, Graphic.ly, Comiczeal, the Dc and Marvel apps and I've just download the iVerse comics app.
Comixology seems to be one of the best bet even though it's pretty disappointing. It looks like the top shelf in the most commercial comic shop. All marvel and DC with only the barest nod to Indy books. Instead it's all Zuda and Zuda like comics.
Where the heck is Fantagtaphics, Drawn and Quarterly and others?? Top Shelf at least has a great online digital selection but I wish they'd get an app!!
Graphic.ly is a bit of a let down. A lot like Comixology but with even less selection. although it has Mouse Guard which I thought was great.
Comiczeal doesn't count as it doesn't really sell comics. You get a bunch of wonderful, free Golden age comics and you can import stuff from your computers.
Great app but it's a different category.
DC's app I had some technical problems with so I buy all my DC comics from Comixology who seem to have the same catalog.
I use the Marvel app a lot great catalog.
What looks most promising is iBooks, of all things. apples own reader app. When I searched the store ( I'm doing all this as I write by the way....) the first comic to pop up is a Jeffery Brown OGN! that blew me away. You can even get some individual issues! Weird. I didn't expect that....
