Customer Reviews

  • Very good

    by Deserves the Nobel prise

    An excellent app the thing I don't is I don't like buying app though but still good apps

  • We'll said

    by CoryRojas


  • by Mista hitdat

    Great app. Very user friendly. Those other two guys are morons ☝️

  • Great but…

    by Ggaaaaaah

    It would be really nice to have a search bar somewhere.

  • Great customer service!

    by Tardis-Sauce

    Used to work well and it still does except the most recent purchase I made in the app won't download and I haven't been able to read it. I made an in app purchase using money from an iTunes gift card I redeemed. It says it's purchased, it just won't let me download or read the comic! I have never had this problem before. UPDATE I contacted comixology customer service and was given prompt support that fixed the problem! My comic has downloaded! :)

  • Amazing

    by The random homeless man

    This is the best way to get cheap comics, fast.

  • Great app, but...

    by Jstembridge

    I like the app for back issues (golden and silver age) but would be more open to an unlimited reading subscription for the purpose that I have the hard copies but don't always want to go digging for them. A competitor has an unlimited application. Just a suggestion.

  • I love this app but

    by Fez1099

    This app is amazing without a doubt, but since the new update I have been logged out of my account for comixology I can't log in. In the website I log in perfectly but when it gets to the app it doesn't let me!

  • DC Comics!

    by -Some person

    This app is great for fans of comics, especially with the new DC2. My only problem: sometimes guided view will cut off part of the panel.

  • Almost awesome

    by SLP222

    I've been using this app for almost 2 years and it has worked very well, but with exceptions. I had multiple billing issues (easily rectified but still a pain) and a purchase which has not gone through after several weeks despite my sufficient funds. A great app with problems

  • App works great

    by csamples

    App works really well for me. So much so that I've really enjoyed getting into some of the new DC 52 series. Prices are the same as the actual comics - and though that can be expensive, the programming makes the comics very easy to read and very convenient on the go. Highly recommend.

  • Help

    by J@YK3

    Can I transfer books from iTunes Store onto here?

  • One problem

    by lunared2

    The DC comics app was/is one of the very best in the app market. It basically rekindled my love of comics, and they operated it so much better than marvel. But why stop putting the REAL release dates? A comic clearly written in the '90's should not say it was released in 2013. If they want to archive when it was released digitally that is another (and maybe understandable) point, but they should write the real release that book was released on the shelf.

  • Since the update for ios 7.0

    by Edgarinho87

    Since this update, the app lags to much. Sometimes it freezes and stays like that.

  • Decent App, Terrible App Icon

    by Joel Then

    Please update the app icon, it's terrible. It does not fit in at all with any of the iOS7 aesthetic.

  • Great!!

    by Colin Charlesworth

    It's very very good in my opinion. I've bought about $30 in comics and have never had a penny stolen... The reader is great, and so is the app- however I'm having a small problem. I tried to buy Gotham Adventures #3, and the tab is stuck on 'Purchasing'. A fix, please :/ Note: I was not deducted credit as the transaction was not completed

  • Best app

    by Kihoon rim

    Best comic app ever!

  • Masterpiece

    by B23a

    This app is amazing I've bought a lot of comics and the graphics look amazing on my I pod. THANK YOU DC.

  • Awesome

    by Boy43

    I love this app I really don't see anything wrong with it. Best app ever!!!!

  • This is a Great App

    by Incubus6980

    I've been using this app for a few months. Personally I love it. I've never had my money stolen, I have all my comics. I purchase new comics weekly and enjoy the functionality. I don't use other comic apps so I have nothing to compare, but I can't see how you can improve on an already excellent app. Overall DC you have a very satisfied customer here.

  • DC Comics?

    by Richard Nixonl

    Detective Comics Comics? Idiots...

  • Good...ish

    by Anonamous fan

    Looks good, 'cept when I made my first purchase, nothing downloaded and I can't download or read it

  • Disappointing and unreliable.

    by Bubbles1007

    My friends and I all have accounts that we have been using for over a year-- they were working perfectly up until about a month ago when it deleted a comic series from my account. I purchased the comic in small sections over a period of time and now it's telling me I have to re-purchase it for $20! A fee that I have already paid once before! It's very annoying and I'm afraid I will not be using this app again

  • Does Not Work

    by WickedPawn

    Makes you sign up with Comixology and then will not recognize my account. After all the brilliant work the artists perform, the CEO should walk over to IT and fire the department head after first making him read all these negative reviews!

  • Help me I can't buy

    by Bummed nerd

    I can't buy any thing for some reason help it says in app purchases arnt on. I checked the settings and it wasn't there

  • Used to work...used to

    by Drfudd2001

    Ever since the update, is pretty much impossible to read my comics...the app crashes not only itself, but makes my iPad restart altogether.

  • Update screwed it up

    by MexiBAT

    The app was great until the update. Now it just keeps lagging and takes forever to scroll down to my comics.

  • Update Problems?

    by Punchline

    This is, or rather was, a really cool app, but the update seems to be buggy on title downloads. They just won't download. And what happened to the look and ease of the last version? Much less attractive. Comic books, fellas. Make it fun. Make it cool.

  • New update needs an update

    by Winterday

    Doesn't accept login that works on other versions or on website.

  • Nice functionality...but HATE the new color scheme.

    by emnm13

    The functionality running under iOS7 is improved but it is my opinion that you've taken one of the best looking apps on the iPad / iPhone and ruined it. I really dislike the new color scheme, the pastel colors and the mostly white backgrounds. If this is where things are headed, please give us some options for picking a color scheme. Thanks!

  • sloooooooooooooooooooooow

    by organized

    It's taken about an hour to download one comic. App keeps stopping.

  • Sooo mad!!

    by Deuderit

    It keeps telling to create a new account. I have all my comics but I can't buy anymore comics.

  • Doesn't work

    by sticknclutch

    Just downloaded the app. Bought my first comic inside the app using in-app purchases. Gives me a download error.

  • Won't read

    by O2456

    Not working for the iPod

  • Lost all of my books

    by CaptainIncredible

    The app suddenly crashed and then refused to open. I had to delete and then re-download and when I did I lost all the comics I had bought since October! About a hundred dollars worth of books, just down the drain!

  • Stole my money

    by Mad comic reader

    Do not get this app and most of all do not buy a comic because when I bought a comic it would not download! ! ! So I couldn't even look at it ! I am so angry ! ! ! !

  • Loading Error

    by DavGvel

    Many times when i go to open up the app and read some of my previously purchased GL comics, the app wont load and constantly crashes. Fix this?

  • Unable to purchase!!!

    by Edameristhegoodcheese

    I started buying the injustice comics but when i tried to get the 5th installment it has me put in my password and the comes up with a screen that says error!!! This is super frustrating!!!

  • Corporate sell outs

    by Nickname24537

    This app was good till they raised prices to "compete" with the crap marvel out there. I won't pay 3.99 a comic. Utter crap. Go back to previous pricing DC or I'll wait till they come down. Greedy f....ing jerks.

  • Never Fails.

    by El roinuJ

    This App Has Never Failed Me And I Have Been Reading Comics On It For Almost Four Months Now. It's Great And Has Gotten Me Into The Hobby Of Buying The Upcoming Prints. Recommend To Everyone Who Is Into DC Comics. :D

  • Good.

    by Hob Emog

    Not enough though.

  • Please update****

    by Andumarlo140

    The app crashes on the loading screen please fix!!! I bought a lot of comics!!!

  • Mostly ok.

    by Abclearner123

    I love the app but keeps crashing. Sometimes it won't even load.

  • Excellent.

    by RJTolleson

    The app itself is excellent. Does what it's meant to do: give access to DC comics and provide a way that makes them easy to read on an iPhone or iPad. One quibble about content: where are the collected editions and archives?

  • Awesome and Highly Addictive

    by Axle James

    Enough is said in the title. Get this app and all you fans of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Nightwing, the Flash, Captain Marvel/Shazam, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and all other DC Comics characters will be satisfied

  • App won't load

    by Charliebrown696

    App won't load anymore constantly have to delete and re-install app. It works for like 3 days than wont load anymore.

  • Fix this!

    by Keeksfshdaf

    It won't allow me to restore my purchases from my apple store!! What the heckkk

  • Expected better

    by Darkwolfx9

    -needs better search function - not all comics from Internet website are on here - only lets you buy and doesn't give let you read samples like on the Internet - can't find Spider-Man :(

  • Awesome app

    by Clownprince44

    Love it! It's awesome I wish I can use this app on the Mac so I can read my comics on the Mac

  • 1 very helpful thing

    by 911 911@911

    A rent button that lets you keep the comic for several days

  • Wish this was more like Marvel unlimited

    by GrayCraig

    Great selection of content but at nearly the same price as a real comic. I really DC would make an annual, all you can eat subscription, like Marvels Unlimited service. I'd pay $100 a year for unlimited access. But $1.99 or more per book is too steep a price to pay for all the titles I'd love to read.

  • Like it but....

    by IsaiahS

    Like the app but it would be nice if I could buy graphic novel like the marvel app.

  • Awesome

    by Cooper6522

    I highly recommend this app and it rarely, if ever, crashes so its way better than the marvel comics app that crashes all the time

  • Installing

    by King slack

    The app is great. But I have to keep installing it over and over. Hopefully something will be done.

  • Why!!!!!?

    by Sonicteh

    When I first got this app, I was quite pleased with it. The download time was short, the quality of the picture was crisp and clear... However, when I tried to download some comics today, the download was at a crawling pace and "download error" repeatedly popped up. It took a total of around 15-35 minutes for only two comics to download... Please, FIX THIS!!!!!


    by One Night In Bangkok

    OCCASIONAL MADDENING BUG: App is frozen in act of "Purchasing" a comic, with "Purchasing" button depressed, but no download in progress. "Restore" does nothing, nor can I even purchase the issue again. Everything to do with it is just stuck. Subsequent issues have downloaded without incident. Otherwise, App works okay, but needs fixes. One title example: Smallville Season 11. Comics out of order. Seriously, how hard is numerical order in a computer system? First five issues stuck with half-sized covers: an ugly setting, but an easy update-fix. Tweak: all comics should let you see the full cover with zooming into a middle cut of it.
