Everyone touts their service as the Netflix for this or that. The e-book subscription model is in dire straights, but music and video are doing quite well. One thing that hardly anyone talks about is unlimited comic book services, there are very few out there. Marvel Unlimited is the most well known, but you really have to be fan to subscribe. One app that has flown under the radar is ComicBlitz. They launched last year as an iPad app but now has support for the iPhone.
ComicBlitz offers all all you read service for $9.99 a month. The service offers more than 3,000 comics from 17 publishers, such as Dynamite, Valiant, Aspen, Action Lab, Zenescope and Alterna. Darby Pop, Markosia, TPub and children’s publisher Capstone are all now available as well.
If you have tried ComicBlitz in the past, they make you sign up before you can view their content or see how their e-reading app works. The company has just scrapped this system and now lets you sample free comic books to see how you like the overall experience or dig their vast catalog.
