    "Comixology is my go-to site for all things comic-related and is absolutely, 100% the best site to buy and read comics! 🔥 I'm such a Marvel and DC fanboy and a total comic geek. this site just makes it so much easier for me to read my favorite comics.

    "The Marvel Unlimited app is really the best app to read and access Marvel digital comics. I used to use the Marvel Comics app but the Unlimited is really better and a tier above in comparison. Although you do need to purchase a subscription to enjoy the app in its entirety, I swear its worth it especially if you're a hardcore comic book fan. bought my subscription and had no regrets whatsoever. 😁"

    "While I was searching for websites to read comics online, I found out that DC Comics had their own official mobile app. This version though is a little outdated because recently they've released a more updated app called DC Universe which was really meant to compete against Marvel's app, Marvel Unlimited. Would love to have seen it on here. Actually, the DC Comics app is still a great app to purchase DC comics for digital use and still offers the same comics as the DC Universe app, just really an older version of the mobile app."

    "Seeing as Marvel already has a newer version called Marvel Unlimited, this particular app is still ran by Comixology. Unlimited is better overall but the Marvel Comics app still serves its purpose of providing quality Marvel Comics. It's a little pricey though so really think it through before deciding if you want a subscription. "

    "Thank God for this website that I'm able to buy online comics of Dark Horse. I'm the type of comic book fan who likes to stray away from mainstream comic books and go for the not-as-popular comic book publishers. Dark Horse really filled that avenue for me, their titles are pretty good too. Really excited for what's to come in terms of their upcoming Netflix series. Umbrella Academy was so good! ❤️️❤️️❤️️"

    "I'm pretty sure Apple already changed the name of this app. it used to be iBooks but now it's known as Apple Books. Still the same app though, and still the same amount of content. Its always been great for reading digital books and when it comes to comics its no different. A pretty convenient app overall."

    "Hey, why is Image Comics so low on this list? C'mon show this comic book publisher some love, they make some pretty great comic books too you know! 😤 their website is pretty great if you wanna read their digital comics and to keep updated with new releases. I'm personally a fan of their titles, I find them to be different but in a really good way. will definitely ask my friends to give em a try. 😉"
