  • Great site BUT....

    by tattoosuec

    Can't buy any comics unless you log in with Facebook, which would change my privacy settings. Don't want to do that, but every time I try to set up an account with the comic site, the other buying option for buying comics, it doesn't work. The drop down form does not work, when it gets to birthdate- cannot enter a birthdate. The rest of the form does not pop up. So....no more comics for me from this site til they fix the sign up form. But, if you don't mind logging in with Facebook to purchase comics, the site has quite a number of great comics. My fav: moby dick. Far superior to most other graphic novels. A shame they don't fix the site sign up.....there is some fantastic stuff here.

  • Great selection of comics

    by Lucy1007

    Love the idea of this app,and it does have a great selection of foreign comics. They are a little pricey compared to other comic apps,though. Also, the app tends to freeze up quite a bit on my IPod Touch. Glad for the ability to read my collection on my pc.

  • Great comics reader

    by KoichiKozue

    I really enjoy reading comics with this app ! The timing is well set and the transitions are good. I just wish there was more manga in the inapp store.

  • Ave!Comics

    by Mick222

    A great application for viewing animated comics. Terrific for the iPhone and iPod but made for iPad viewing. I like having my library at hand, whether from the computer or the mobile.

  • Excellent app

    by Julianusimperator

    Great app to buy and read comic books. One of the best readers out there and a great choice of international languages.

  • Too many crashes

    by @hopi

    This app would be really nice, and i would spend much more on it, if there weren't that many bugs and problems. The two main ones are the low performances (too much loading time) and the constant reinitialisation of the app. the last problem just makes me want to stop using the app completely. I don't read comics that often nowadays, but will read a lot in short periods of time. I have a few comics that I bought and still have to read. It's the fifth time I try to read them, but each time the app has been reinitialized or something and I have to re download the comics. Worse, I keep having login issues, so have to reinstall the app nearly each time to get the comics I paid for. It turns out each time I want to read a comic, I end up spending my time reinstalling the app and then waiting a long time for the comic to download and decompress and open, etc. The comics I paid for are practically inaccessible...

  • Terms and Conditions from Hell

    by mikeoregon

    The app is fine but the terms and conditions read like the attorneys want to put you in jail first chance they get. Please revise and use normal language.

  • Incessant crashes

    by hzink

    Incessant crashes an unexpected quits, and inn responsive navigation, sadly, render this rather useless. Pity, as they offer many French comics that I would like to buy, but I won't waste my time or money.
