DC Comics satisfies the relentless demand for comic book content, being a title catalog, an online store, and a comic viewer at the same time. It's a gorgeous app that makes it easy for you to enjoy classics, as well as discover free titles.


Panel by panel guided view: We tested DC Comics on the limited screen estate of a Galaxy S3 and a larger Nexus 7; on both devices, the panel-by-panel viewing feature made our day by automatically focusing on individual panels and keeping the story flowing and the pages turning.

Gorgeous graphics: Comics look crisp, beautiful, and detailed, even when you zoom in.

Uncomplicated access to a huge collection: Although the collection of comics is vast, navigating your way through it isn't only easy but also enjoyable. Download times are quite fast as well, approximately one minute for a 25-page title on a typical Wi-Fi connection.


Not many features: The app offers only a relatively limited amount of information on stories, heroes, and creators, although the DC universe is huge.

Unnecessary print option: With such beautiful work done on the onscreen graphics, we had absolutely no need for the superfluous print option.

Bottom Line

Although it isn't yet a mature app, DC Comics remains a great venture in the world of online comics. Despite its basic nature, it offers an unparalleled content variety and a great viewing experience even for small-screen devices. Titles cost between $0.99 and $4.99, but the free offerings are more than enough to convince you to download this entertaining app.
