Comic Books Coming to the iPad
With the successful launch of the iPad in the books, news will now be centered around the apps that will find themselves on the iPad. One such app will allow users to read comic books from 50 publishers, including Marvel. That app is being developed by Panelfly. Publishers will receive a large portion of the money obtained through this app, which will sell comics from $1-$10. However, Marvel Comics has already released its own app on April 3, which is free to download. There are currently 500 comics available to be purchased through the app, at the price of $1.99 each. DC Comics currently has no plans for the iPad, but is said to be looking into it. The comic book industry hopes that the iPad will help revive a once strong selling product that has seen sales decline in recent history. Marvel is also looking into developing an app for upcoming tablets based on Android.
