DC Comics official app now in the Marketplace

It just won't end, will it? Yes folks, DC Comics now also has an official app for Windows Phone and it looks pretty awesome to these eyes:

"DC Comics is the biggest and best North American comics publisher, featuring a wide variety of characters and genres. Renowned for the World's Greatest Super Heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash and many many more. DC has thrilled readers with fantastic tales from the DC UNIVERSE in dozens of languages around the world for decades.Publishing more than 80 comic format titles monthly and over 1,000 comic books and graphic novels annually, DC also presents different flavors of graphic storytelling through its diverse imprints."

We're sure there's a few comic readers our there who will be exceptionally pleased with this app, which is of course free. Most comics are $1.99 and even have an option to buy in print right from the app. Sounds good? It's live here in the Marketplace. Go, go go! (Thanks, Larry B.!)

  • If there were a way to read my already owned comics, I'd be all over this. Plus, I'm more of a marvel man myself.
  • http://www.wpcentral.com/how-to-read-comic-booksRead that.
  • I'm more of a DC fan, but I do like Marvel as well. Still, this is a great app for fans of comic books. I'll be sure to download it, and check it out.It seems like I have to input my credit card information to purchase comics. I, of course, knew that would be required, but I'm always hesitant at putting that kind of information into a third-party app.
  • X-Men forever!! (The REAL X-Men, led by Cyclops not the **** Wolverine based rubbish.) Will check this out though, love The Flash, The Bat and Supes.
  • Hopefully this will push Marvel to release a competing app.
  • just downloaded this and wow this app is gorgeous. Even though i'm more of a marvel fan, i will check out a couple batman comics.
  • This app keeps crashing after a few seconds on my Omnia7.I have re-installed it but it doesn't matter.The amount of crashing and buggy apps are starting to get on my nerves. :(
  • I've had a few problems with apps on my Trophy (including the DC app) that have been fixed by restarting the phone. When in Microsoft land diagnostic/repair step 1 is... reboot. Sad but true fact.
  • Me too with my Verizon Trophy. By 'restart' do you mean just turning it off and on or do you mean reseting the phone?
