Marvel Comics Coming to iTunes Store


via Switched

As those who have been following the news from this week’s ComicCon event in New York City are well aware, Marvel announced that it will be selling its new “In-Motion” comic books in Apple’s iTunes Store. The comics differ from old-school physical comics by having animated panels and voice-over work from popular actors, making them well-suited to the iPhone and iPod Touch, with their sharp screens and various multimedia capabilities.

Fret not, diehard classic comic book fans — Marvel will release traditional paper copies of these comics (after the In-Motion versions are released on iTunes). No word yet on cost or availability.

Big-name Marvel aside, there’s plenty of comics to be found online (and on mobile phones) that’s optimized for the digital world. We’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of our favorite Web comics for your time-wasting, on-the-clock pleasure (after the break). Just remember to Control-Tab when your boss comes a-wandering by.

More Apple Stores Headed To Big Apple

Big Apple

The already insanely popular NY Apple stores will be getting two new additions sometime next year and suprisingly the borough of Brooklyn looks to be a benefactor of one of the Houses That Job Built. Although details remain sketchy speculation is that the designated site will be either One Hanson Place, directly across the street from the proposed Nets Arena or either Albee Square Mall, which is undergoing a facelift, or the Municipal Building at 345 Adams Street. If all fails and its neither of these sites a future development at North 6th Street in Williamsburg may be the lucky locale. What has been confirmed is that the Manhattan location will be smack-dab in the middle of the financial district, actually in a global financial center at 23 Wall Street. These additions can be expected sometime in 2009.
