Today, we take a look at the best digital comic readers for the Apple iPad. We take a deep look at ComiXology, Madefire, Comic Zeal, Marvel and Dark Horse. Each of these companies all do business with different publishers and depending on the genre of comic you like, might be a deciding factor. Comic Zeal is fairly solid, because it allows you to sideload in your own PDF, CBZ and CBR comics you download from the internet.
In the below video, we give you a comprehensive analysis of some of the best comic reading apps currently available. One of the our favorite apps is Madefire, who recently signed a deal with DeviantArt. This is a free app that offers around 30 free comics that have animations, sound and a very unique way of changing the comic paradigm. ComiXology is currently the largest digital company that has relationships with Marvel, DC, Walking Dead, Archie and tons of other major franchises. They publish the digital editions the same day the printed ones come out, so you can always remain current. One of the most compelling features is their HD functionality that allows you get super high resolution comics. Check the video below for details on every app we cover.
