ComiXology Powerhouse Behind Digital Comics - Page 2
added to a “pull” list for you. Participating local retailers can then be provided with this list and pull your selected comics for you. If there is not local participating retailer, your pull list can also be printed and you can take it to the retailer for easier shopping.
In addition to all that great cross-platform use and pull-ability for paper comics, there is also an iCOS (iComicsOnSale) for Mac users. It is a dashboard widget that allows you to “browse shipping and expected comics as well as manage your Pull lists.”
Now, what about the platform itself? What’s it like to use? Well, I moseyed on down to the digital library to check things out for myself. Hmmmmm. An almost overwhelming number of comics to choose from. One click and the comic is in front of you, no waiting for download. Full-screen expandable. Easy, minimalist controls that don’t detract from the reading experience at all. I had a great time perusing titles and almost forgot why I was there! Did I mention the app is 100 percent free? Yup, it is.
I had one more question though for Mr. Cohen:
Is there a Spider-Woman title for download? I saw the most recent title, but it’s the kind of art that looks like enhanced photography and I want a traditional comic.
His answer: “We don’t have an individual Spider-Women comic but she is in The New Avengers series, which I recommend you read.”
Will do, Mr. Cohen.
