Below is a list of the top 10 iOS comic apps for iPads and iPhones to go along with the list of 10 best reading apps for iOS that I posted a couple weeks ago.
Comics have benefited a lot since the transition to digital, although the whole collectability factor goes out the window when you can’t sell a rare digital comic for thousands of dollars like you can a paper comic.
But a device like an iPad is well-suited for comicbooks and being able to have them all on a single device is handy.
There are a number of comic apps for iOS.
Some apps have a selection of free comics but obviously most are paid.
