You know the future is really upon us when you don't even have to fish around in comic book shops any more. Instead, you can download over 12,000 comics (and 500 free editions) with the ComiXology app (free) for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. I know what you're thinking — you actually like hanging out in comic book shops. So do I, but I also like being able to download a new comic at the touch of a few buttons from the comfort of my sofa — PJs, dirty hair, and all.
All the greats are available for download — Marvel, DC, TOKYOPOP, Asylum Press, and more. Plus, you can read your comics on the web a la Amazon's cloud reader if your boyfriend is hogging the iPad. Recently updated, the app is faster and helps you find new comics you may love with an enhanced discovery tool. And by the way — ComiXology is also available on Android.
