Ratings and ReviewsSee All
All right. Let me start by saying I've been a HUGE DC fan since 1973. I didn't even read my first Marvel until the 1980s. Even then DC was always number one in my heart. So as far as the content goes and the readability of the comics, I couldn't love this app more. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to see each panel much larger than it is on the printed page – it makes good art especially enjoyable!
But I also have the marvel universe app and for about $70 a year I get thousands and thousands of comics. It's just an unbeatable value.
As far as monetary value, the marvel app just blows DC out of the water! I have downloaded about 2000 DC comics, the vast majority of which cost $.99 each but a significant number were $5.99 or more. In the past three years I've spent about $2100 on DC Comics and $210 on Marvel comics. 10X more on DC. What?
And what I've got to show for it is about 2000 DC comics at my fingertips and about 20,000 marvel comics at my fingertips.
OK, if I accept that injustice as being the price I have to pay for being a DC fan, couldn't they at least mitigate the pain by offering a sale every week? Why doesn't DC Comics offer a sale on digital comics every single week???? It would cost them Jack squat and they would garnish some goodwill in addition to beaucoup bucks!
Just a quick complaint that they only put Vertigo comics on sale maybe twice a year if you're lucky. Again, costs them nothing/beaucoup bucks.
In this day in age, learning to recycle and use less organic materials is an important part of living and keeping our planet healthy. This app is a great tool if you are one who values saving paper. The app's enhanced comic reading tools may be even more suitable to readers who just want to experience the stories in a cinematic way. Get up close and personal with your favorite heroes and not only see them take their heroic journeys, but become intrigued by the art and emotions that have been carefully placed into each comic series. If you love DC comics, download this app and love them even more! Now is a better time than ever! #Rebirth
Lossy Compression Algorithms
I can’t prove it, but in at least the issues I’ve purchased, DC seem to be applying a lossy compression scheme (think JPEG or similar) to the digital representations of their comics. This results in ugly compression artifacts that make reading an unpleasant experience. It's simply never acceptable to use lossy bitmap compression for text or hand-drawn color graphics - there are existing lossless algorithms that compress nearly as well and cause no drop in quality from the reference material. I have no doubt DC want the experience of reading a comic on an iPad to be just as good as reading on paper, and I'm optimistic they will make fixing this defect their utmost priority. Until that time however, I simply can't recommend this application.
