We’re all about reading comics here, though, admittedly, it can be tough to bring physical comic books with you wherever you go. Recently, someone asked us how we choose apps for reading comics online and we didn’t have an answer for it.
We dove into the world wide web and did some massive research on what good comic apps are out there and how to find them. With the hand site we’ve linked below (called AppGrooves), we were able to create a base of good apps and start figuring out exactly what things to consider when choosing a good app.
As a result, we’ve compiled a list of three key tips you should most definitely keep in mind in order to select the perfect app for you – whatever your preferences may be. Check it out!

Many apps offer comics that have zero charges involved – as long as you’re willing to view an ad or two. Still, these apps will not distract you from enjoying some of your favorite reads, and they certainly won’t charge you anything..

If you want to choose a comic channel that’s right for you, you’ll need to consider a few factors first. First, you should find an app that caters to your tastes. For example, if you like superhero comics in a contemporary setting, Comic Extra, comiXology, or ReadComicOnline might be your best options.
Brand affiliation is another important factor. If you’re a fan of Walking Dead, Batman, or Injustice 2, you’ll want an app that has all the latest releases, not to mention some older classics.
