    "A great site and place for reading comics online for free. So many comics I had never heard of, and a lot that I had. I could see spending many hours here reading my old favorites, as well as making some new favorites. I can not wait to sit down and really dive into what this site has in store. Really great find."

    "I used to use hellocomic to read comics for free but after some updates, I started having problems with it. It took me awhile to find another that I liked as much but Astonishing Comic Reader has fit the bill for what I'm looking for. The interface is simple and clean and they even give you the ability to sort your comics into collections, which I love. Definitely recommend!"

    "Your standard Google Play page for Comixology, which seems to be ideal for those that like reading comics. As such, it gives you a lot of the standard info, and some links to explore for further info. It's unclear to me on first glance how many are free, and how many aren't as it has just a standard note of "in-app purchases" are offered."
