Image Comics Upgrades iOS App To 3.1

Image Comics and comiXology announced that the Image Comics iOS App has been upgraded to 3.1. The release features a sleek new design, bolstered discoverability, dramatically increased speeds, and an expansive library of over 200 CMX-HD ready digital comics to take advantage of the new iPad’s enhanced display.

“Bringing the 3.1 interface to the Image Comics app is a huge win for Image Comics fans,” says comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “The Image Comics library is already a major cornerstone of the modern day comic industry and with 3.1 that library is now more accessible than ever.”

“We couldn’t be happier with the updated Image Comics iOS app and we can’t wait for fans to see books like The Walking Dead, Saga, Fatale and The Manhattan Projects displayed in CMX-HD,” says Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “Bringing the best digital reading experience to the best creator-owned comics just makes sense.”
