Just like most physical industries, comic books is another market which has seen significant change over the last few years, thanks to the digital revolution. While there is nothing like having a physical comic in your hands, the digital side of comics is proving to be a useful companion to owning comic books and comic book collection building. In some ways, it adds to the experience by offering a centralized and easy to navigate and manage online collection, as well as some features which improve the reading experience overall. Here are ten comic book apps for Android which are currently worth checking out.
Starting off the list today is an app a number of comic books fans might already be familiar with. This is Comics by ComiXology and is easily one of the largest databases of comics in app form available. Not to mention that this is a very well-polished app and offers a nice and clean interface. It is also worth pointing out that ComiXology was picked up by Amazon in 2014 and so this app works seamlessly with the Amazon ecosystem.
When it comes to comics, readers definitely have their preferences. If you are more of the Marvel persuasion then this might be an app worth checking out. Marvel Comics looks to be your one-stop Marvel app with access to over 13,500 comics and from all the usual suspects including Iron Man, Spiderman, Thor and so on.
CLZ Comics – Comic Database
If you are more of a serious comic book collector then CLZ Comics is an interesting app. This one is designed to help you keep a digital track of the comics you own and organize them. As such, you can input your comics by title or just snap an image of the barcode. At which point, the app will download all the artwork, publisher details and so on. A great way to systematic track your comic collection.
The DC/Marvel debate is likely to be one which will always continue due to the fundamental difference between the main characters of each camp. If you are more of a DC comic reader and prefer the more powerful or otherworldly heroes, then DC Comics might be the app for you. Here you will find a great selection of comics on Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern and many more. Not to mention, this is another app brought to you by ComiXology.
LINE WEBTOON – FREE Comics
