Buying comics digitally is a relatively recent phenomenon that’s made it possible to have access to a library anywhere, anytime.
It’s a pocket-longbox, so to speak.
On February 10 a website and app combo that was already acting as a “Netflix” for books, Scribd, announced the addition of 10,000 comic books. It creates a whole new world for accessing comic books that’s a little more versatile than other aggregate sites like Comixology, for $8.99 per month.
- Quick access to thousands of comics (and traditional books)
- User friendly
- Nice interface
- Allows you to recommend comics by sharing through social media
- Helpful recommendations based on what you like
- The first month is free. FREE.
- The subsequent months are $8.99 per month. Which is about what I would pay for a small stack of comics each week.
- You can’t back up or download your comics, so there’s no way to read without wifi
- DC and a few other big publishers are absent from the lineup
- The current selection is still growing and is small in comparison to other aggregate sites
- No guided view
