At last, DC Comics has a home on the iPad. Forget about the X-Men and all that other kids’s stuff: now you can buy and read some of the best comic-books ever made.
DC, like Marvel, is on the iPad in two forms. First, this standalone app in which you can browse, buy and read the available titles. This is powered by the same Comixology engine behind most branded comic-book apps. But while this is a nice way to get your favorite DC titles, it may be better to just grab the free Comics app, which is exactly the same but also contains the catalogs of Marvel and a heap of indie publishers. Some DC titles are already available in the Comics store, but now they are all in one DC store, so you can go straight for the good stuff.
Why am I so excited? Because DC comics were the ones I bought when I was a teenager, and a lot of those old titles are here. Hellblazer, Grant Morrison’s stunning Invisibles, the Sandman, and the comic book which arguably kick-started the whole comic-books-are-not-for-kids movement, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. And not as a trade paperback, either, but in its original separate issues ($3 each).
What are you waiting for? The DC app is free, and also available on the iPhone. And one more thing: Look at that picture up top, or rather, that Photoshop disaster up top. Who the hell did that “iPad” illustration?
