How are the Marvel and DC apps? And do you prefer reading them on the iPad over the print version? I've been wanting to get back into the comic book game and this seems like a good way.

Speaking on behalf of myself (:P), I use Comixology. It has Marvel and DC comics in addition to other publishing houses. I just switched to digital with my acquisition of the new iPad. I've only begun to read comics last fall and have accumulated a lot of printed trades. My reason to go digital was to save on space but so far, I think I've gotten more out of it. I really enjoy reading it on the new iPad. As a matter of fact, I think it looks better on the iPad. Of course, if you prefer the feel of paper and flipping through the pages, print is where it's at. If you don't care for those two things, then you can't go wrong with digital.

Also, Comixology just had an update today adding retina display support for the most recent comics. I reread issue #7 of Wolverine and the X-Men and noticed visual improvements from when I read it just the other day. And the comics still looked phenomenal before the update.

Thanks to this thread, I picked up a $100 iTunes code. I'm debating whether or not I should get another one.

Is Comixology officially supported by Marvel and DC? If I buy a Marvel or DC comic from their apps, can I read them through Comixology's app?

I use the Comixology, Dark Horse and Archie apps and find it much nicer than reading the print versions, though I do occasionally miss the tactile sense of flipping pages. Most of my downloads are through comixology and I like the fact that I can access my comic through my Mac, iPhone or iPad. There are constant sales and the sheer convenience of not having to travel to the comic book shop or dig through a longbox are what I find convenient. I must say that I can't think of a single comic I've read through my iPhone 4 or iPad that hasn't looked great through the retina display.

Don't worry for those who missed out. I believe Best Buy does this every month or two.
