Comic Blitz: All-You-Can-Read Digital Comic Book SubscriptionOctober 7th, 2015
A startup called Comic Blitz just entered the relatively uncrowded digital comics subscription arena (with Marvel and Scribd being the other two big players). It’s launching first on the iPad, offering over 2,000 comics and graphic novels from publishers such as Valiant, Dynamite and Zenescope. You can save up to 1GB worth of issues for offline or later reading, create reading lists and rate and review issues.
The all-you-can-read service costs $10 (USD) a month, but right now it’s giving away the first month for free. Since individual comics are still around $3 to $5, I think readers would be willng to pay $20 a month for universal access to all digital comics regardless of the publisher. But that’s never gonna happen. I guess I’ll have to wait for the Archie and Jughead TPBs.
