I like reading comics but I hate the physical clutter and I also think the prices are a little high. I'm looking for the easiest and best way to buy, store and read comic books. My chief concerns are:
- All the comics I'd like to read on one device (DC and Marvel mostly, the big stories like Sandman, Walking Dead, Batman, etc.)
- Easy management, ability to download to multiple devices and/or cloud storage
- Reasonable prices
- Ability to buy and download while away from home
- Long term compatibility, never losing or getting locked out of content
I have a laptop and an iPhone, but I'm always considering a tablet or reader-focused tablet like a Kindle Fire. N.B.: I read a free sample comic on Comixology on my iPhone and thought that was a pretty slick app but the screen was too small.
