Due to current events, many comic book stores across the country are not open. However, comic book apps are a great alternative for the time being to keep up with all the latest titles that are still coming out every Wednesday. Digital comic books can be extremely beneficial since they offer easy access and present a new experience when you read on your phone, tablet, or TV, as long as you protect yourself from the blue light. Find out what the best digital comic book apps in 2020 are to get started.
Comics by ComiXology
If you are looking to stay up to date with all the latest comics from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, IDW, and others, then ComiXology is the app for you. ComiXology is a segment of Amazon, so you can tie the accounts together and access a wide selection of old and new digital books. The app also has a guided navigation feature that allows you to view a comic book panel by panel. ComiXology also has great deals that you can capitalize on during the holidays or when a new comic book movie is coming out in theaters.
There is also the option to sign up for a subscription service when it comes to reading digital comics. With a DC Universe subscription and a monthly payment of $7.99, you can unlock an extensive catalog of DC comic books, in addition to TV shows and movies. DC Universe also has a feature that allows you to view comics on a TV with guided navigation.
Marvel comics has a similar app as well called Marvel Unlimited. At $9.99 a month, you can unlock over 27,000 digital comics from the Marvel universe. The only downside to the app is that for its price, you don’t get the extra content that DC Universe has to offer.
Google Play Books
You can also access a wide selection of comic books with Google Play Books. Like Comixology, Google Play Books has all the latest comic books available with the tap of a finger. What makes Google Play Books one of the best digital comic book apps in 2020 is that it gives you the ability to rent titles for only $1.79.
