Thanks to DC Universe being on the Apple TV app, I’ve been reading comics through my television. That’s something I never thought I’d say, and yet it’s really cool. It got me thinking about digital comics, though.
I remember being very hesitant about them because I love reading single issues and trades. I gave them a try through Comixology when I saw you can read them through your phone. Because I had a smaller phone it was difficult, but it was interesting. Eventually I saved up to get a tablet and found reading comics on those was amazing because the tablet was similar in size to a comic and the colors popped. I also liked panel-to-panel view because it allows me to see details the artist put in that I never would’ve noticed before.
When DC Universe launched…and specifically when we started getting TONS of comics in their library, I noticed I’ve been reading more digital comics than physical ones. Part of it is seeing the vast array of comics, but also it’s a space issue.
I’ll never give up on physical comics because they’re the standard, but I also won’t turn my nose up at reading something digitally. How about you? Have you read comics digitally before or is this your first experience with them? What do you think? I’m interested to hear your thoughts.
