Review: Comics, a digital comic reader and store for the iPhone

From Just Another iPhone Blog:

One thing that comics can’t easily achieve in paper form is the idea of a panned shot. You either have the whole two-page spread of the hero pulling out his weapon to kill the villain, or you do a reveal on the next page and leave the reader in suspense. This is an area where I think Comics, and its use of comiXology formatted issues, really shines. Each panel is specially formatted for the iPhone screen for maximum dramatic effect — turning the comic experience into something more of an awesome slideshow than a page turner. However, Comics does go beyond just the reading, as it’s also a place to buy your digital issues and locate stores around the city to buy paperback issues.
