Marvel recently unveiled it’s new application for Apple’s iPad, and it’s essentially the already existing iPhone application Comixology, but limited to Marvel titles. So basically, it’s an iTunes for Marvel comics that you can read on your iPad, scrolling and zooming as you please.
The layout and function seem pretty smooth, but as digital prices run about the same as their paper counterparts, it may be pointless for some. Others, however, may appreciate the instant access and perpetual “mint condition”.
