Archie #1The world of digital comics is a new and exciting one, but where should new readers begin? We take a look at five of the best digital comics from the world’s biggest publishers that are the perfect starting point for anyone looking to read comics on their tablet or smartphone.

The popularity of these books is why they are hot references. Gaming sites like pgbingo.com, for example, have free bingo games created with comic books characters as the themes. Other platforms have embraced this model as they seek to give their guests and regular users, something that they can relate to. What better way to impress you than a picture of your favourite comic character in the background when you get to a website? This piece takes a look at the top digital comic books you should read.

Archie #1Action Comics

The creators, Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder give the Superman story an entirely new spin. In the book, Superman is faced with a new set of trials and tribulations. The world now knows his secret identity, he has lost his ability to fly and is no longer invulnerable.  This comic tries to show you how Superman can be Superman without really being Superman; if that makes sense?


Fiona Staples and Mark Waid have gone all out to breathe new life into one of the most iconic characters in the comic book world. In Archie, most of the popular Riverdale names, including Jughead, Reggie and Betty, join the titular character to make a compelling story.

The Black Hood

The Black Hood, created by Duane Swierczynski, Michael Gaydos, and Kelly Fitzpatrick, is the story of a Philadelphia cop who is shot in the face in the line of duty.  He gets hooked on painkillers and with revenge on his mind, heads into the streets to enact revenge on the criminals. Great fun!

The Black Hood #1Captain America: White

Created by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, ‘Captain America : White’ is the story of a recently thawed Steve Rogers as he goes over his first encounters with The Howling Commandos, Nick Fury, and the mission with Bucky, his once dead partner. The creators are an award winning team that has also put forward acclaimed titles such as Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, and Hulk: Gray.

Secret Wars (2015)

In this story, Marvel Universe is destroyed following some reality-wrecking incursions. This leads Doctor Doom to create a patchwork world, known as Battleworld, where only the strongest survive. This is the new branch of Creator Jonathan Hickman’s multiyear story line and is expected to be the foundation of Marvel’s continuity in the comic books niche.

Apart from Secret Wars, priced at $4.99 per issue, all other comic books here can be snagged up for $3.99 per issue. If you enjoy the genre then digital may be the way for you to go.
