Digital Comic: Marvel hits iTunes

Published on October 30th, 2009

Ok I am in a bit in aw here, our digital comic fan boy (more like a fetish really) and all around fan of Ed Brubaker, Sheldon did not  post this. Marvel will be providing their comics for sale through four applications; ComiXology, iVerse, ScrollMotion and Panelfly.

You can download any one of these applications on either your iPhone or your iTouch and access a rather vast collection of Marvel comics NOT current issues.  Even though there is a lot you can download,  here are some of the stuff I would have liked to see. The full run of Astonishing X-Men by Whedon and Captain America #1–30 by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting. They do have, for us die hard comic book fans, Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #1-25 (Lee, Ditko) over at Panelfly.

Here is the breakdown of what each site has and how much you will be paying.
