Marvel Entertainment has launched an app for the iPad that offers easy access to over 500 comic books, including Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk and Thor. According to Marvel CEO, Dan Buckley,
"The iPad is the first device that offers us a chance to present digital comics that are even close to replicating the experience of reading a print comic," trumpeted Buckley.
"Fans will be granted unrivaled access to Marvel's rich library of comics, with launch titles ranging from the first appearances of characters such as Spider-Man and the X-Men to modern classics like the debut of Red Hulk, Jonathan Hickman's acclaimed Fantastic Four run, Joss Whedon & John Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men and lots more.
To further enhance the mobile reading experience on the iPad, the Marvel Comics App features multiple viewing modes, taking readers panel-by-panel through the comic book in a smooth, action-packed progression using just the swipe of a finger."
