ComicBlitz Expands to the Web

ipad-browseThe battle for “all you can read” comics has heated up as ComicBlitz has announced the digital platform will be expanding to a web app from its iOS roots on June 21st.

Having launched in October 2015, the “Netflix like” digital comic service had just been available to iOS users leaving Android and Windows users waiting for their turn. Now, that wait is over. The company has expanded its reach “with the launch of a universally compatible web app that operates on all devices — PC’s, laptops, tablets, and smartphones on any OS (Android, Windows, Mac, and iOS).”

ComicBlitz costs $9.99 a month with the first 30 days free. The service offers comics from publishers such as Valiant, Dynamite, Action Lab, Aspen, Darby Pop, and more.

Though the iOS app currently remains the sole native app for ComicBlitz, the company is planning to unveil an Android app in the near future.

Two key features of the app is that it “streams” comic books rather than having to download each comic, providing faster, easier reading without burdening device memory. Also content does not “rotate”, which means once the content arrives on ComicBlitz, it remains on the platform indefinitely so the user does not have to rush to complete a series. This differentiates itself from comiXology Unlimited which will have a rotating choice of comics.
