Even if you've never stepped foot in a comic book store in your life, you don't have to sit out on the action. Comic book readers for iOS let anyone indulge in stories of adventure and superheroes. In honor of Comic-Con, we found 10 of the best -- some are free apps that let you buy comics as in-app purchases, and others are paid library apps where you upload digital comics you already own. But at least one should suit every true believer's needs.
It's here, it's in your hands, and if you're even more hardcore, you're probably surfing our website in mobile Safari on your iPad 2 right now. Doesn't it feel wonderful in your hands? Whether you're a second-generation adopter or this is the second iPad to join your family, there are still a few free apps out there you may not have considered. In this special edition of Free App Friday, we're got a couple of free apps you want to ensure are installed on your new toy.
Don’t howl in outrage, but comic books have always been a primarily disposable product. They tear if mishandled, and as any collector will tell you, faded ink and bent pages are inevitable if comics aren’t properly stored. Although iOS developers hardly invented digital comics, the iPad’s big, beautiful, portable screen makes the comic readers in the App Store a worthy alternative to delicately stowing and indexing each issue of Batman in a vacuum-sealed container.
