Android App Review
Comics is a fantastic app for both avid comic fans and those of us who only read on occasion. It is free to download and features a large range of comics to buy and plenty more for free.

The layout of the actual app is simple to use and aesthetically pleasing; with different sections such as Featured Comics, Just Added and Free. In the store there are different genres to choose from and a search bar to make it easy to find what you’re looking for.

As for the comics themselves, I have read a few free ones including ‘True Grit’ and a paid one each of them are utterly gripping and cause you to get lost in another world – just how comics should be!

Rating: ★★★★☆

Android App Description
The largest digital comics store and best reader comes to Android!

The largest digital comic library (over 3,000 comics, over 300 free) & store with Guided View™ Technology, which says “solves the problem of reading comics on the small screen.”

Publishers include DC Comics, Image, Archie & many more!

Purchases made here can be read on the web, too, at!

Please note: Many users are encountering continued problems when attempting to purchase comics via PayPal in the app. PayPal is aware of the issues and we are hoping they will deliver a solution as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you experience issues with PayPal, you can always purchase comics at and they will be available to download on your device the next time you sign in to the app. We appreciate your patience!

In addition, as an alternative to PayPal we will have support for buying comics through the Android Market billing service as soon as it is officially launched by Google. Stay tuned!

(In case you were wondering… This app requires the “Fine (GPS) location” permission only to help direct you to the nearest comic retailers in your area as part of the “Buy in Print” feature. The app also requires the “Read phone state” permission only because it is required by the PayPal billing system to keep your account secure. comiXology respects your privacy, and we do *not* collect or store this sensitive location or phone state data! We hope this clears up any concerns you may have regarding permissions.)

Requires Android: 2.1 and up
