iPhone Quality Index

App of the Day: Marvel Comics

Get your graphic novel fix on iPhone

The list of comic book movies scheduled to hit cinemas this year is almost as long as Qi’s arm. Actually, it’s probably longer.

Thor, X-Men: First Class, and Captain America: The First Avenger comprise just a selection of 2011’s superhero adaptations, but squint a little harder and you’ll spot a - sorry - Marvellous connection.

Yes, each and every one of these three big-budget Hollywood pictures has its origins in the venerable Marvel Comics universe.

And iPhone owners of a Marvel persuasion need never set foot outside of their Spider-Man bedecked bedroom again, since the comic book veterans have brought their catalogue of heroes to your favourite handset.

Download literally hundreds of comics and graphic novels (including classic and brand-new e-editions of Wolverine, Iron Man, and Hulk) from inside the bespoke and App Store-styled frontend.

Once you’ve purchased your cherished Ghost Rider #1, choose from an animated panel-by-panel guided view or swipe through the pages at your own convenience, rotating the orientation when applicable.

If you have a particular soft spot for the Silver Surfer series, the Marvel Comics app will ping you via a push notification when the next instalment is available on its digital shelf.

Know Your Mobile was suitably impressed by Marvel’s wealth of social options, remarking - in speech bubble form, of course - that “you can rate individual comics, get a list of the other comics available in that particular story arc, browse by creator, series, and genre...and log into your Marvel.com account.”

Prove yourself a true comic buff by installing Qi’s App of the Day Marvel Comics.

(Please note that whilst the app itself is free, the comics typically cost £1.19 / $1.99 / €1.59 each.)
