What Are Ways To Read Comic Books?

Once upon a time, youngsters hopped into bed, pulled out their flashlights and settled in to read comic books, soaking up their favorite superhero’s adventures. Today, iPhones, laptops and DVDs have become the new mediums for graphic novels.

Comic books DC and Marvel have created are being converted into digital formats slowly but surely. While the paper sale of graphic novels in the North American market is still a healthy $ 705 million (quintupling since 2001), there is still the desire to modernize and change with the times, just as the characters in the comic books have. Some call it “evolution,” while others just call it “business.” Either way, given the enduring success of the hero narrative, comic book series aren’t likely to go anywhere anytime soon.

Many fans just want to read comics for free. After all, that’s what the internet and peer-to-peer is all about, right? There are a few databases offering graphic novels for free. Manga comics, like Naruto, Bleach, Love Junkies, Pokemon and Vampire Knight can be found at Mangafox and Mangavolume, for instance. More than three hundred conventional classics from DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Vertigo, Wild Storm and Oni can be found at Lorencollins.

Fans looking for “Golden Age” comics can find comic book series like “Tales of Horror,” “Out of the Shadows,” “Jumbo Comics,” “Exciting Comics” and “The Perfect Crime” (with characters like Ibis the Invincible and Blue Beetle) at Comicweb. Other comics from that time period, like “Baffling Mysteries,” “Strange Fantasy,” “Underworld,” “Famous Funnies,” “Forbidden Worlds” or “Whiz Comics” can be viewed at Goldenagecomics. Additionally, for fans of DC comic book characters, the first five issues of each major series are being offered as free PDF downloads at Ugo.

Of course, not everyone feels like sitting inside to read comic books in their rooms all day long. Now fans can take their favorite comics graphic novels outside, on the bus, into the lunchroom or on break at work with Nintendo DS portable players, iPods and iPhones. “Comic Book DS” is a neat application that can be downloaded at 4colorrebellion, so that comics can be read on Nintendo DS systems.

For the iPhone or iPod Touch, fans will need the “ComicZeal” program, which can be purchased for $ 1.99 at Igoapps. To read comics on a laptop, a program like Adobe Acrobat Reader will likely be required.

So where does this take the future of comics? Marvel Comics Publisher Dan Buckley says they want people to read comic books using new formats, but they’re still undertaking research to see where their time and efforts are best spent. “We’re still quibbling about what the primary form of revenue will be,” Buckley said, relaying that some comics can be found online for free.

“We don’t want to do anything to hurt anybody in the short term,” he added, meaning the independent comic book store. In general, the comic book industry agrees that the internet can be a great way for comics to gain a larger audience.

Elfia Haarzuilen 2014 saturday 19 april 2014

Every year in April since 2001, the substantial number of 25,000 people from all over Europe come to the largest Fantasy event on the European continent: the Elfia.
Two-third of the visitors have transformed into orcs, magicians, dragons, knights, vampires, elves, unicorns, gothic lolita, manga comic hero or a combination of these. Every year the costumes are getting more resourceful and more artistic. In the midst of the budding nature of the Castle park which belongs to the largest castle of the Netherlands – Kasteel de Haar fantasy lovers indulge themselves in all that is offered and coveted: medieval music, dancing, lectures, theatre plays, and parades.

Sinds 2001 komen elk jaar in april een groeiend aantal mensen uit heel Europa op de Elfia editie Haarzuilens naar het grootste fantasy evenement dat op het Europese continent georganiseerd wordt: de Elf Fantasy Fair.
Tweederde van deze bezoekers hebben zichzelf omgetoverd tot orc, tovenaar, draak, ridder, vampier, elf, eenhoorn, gothic lolita, manga stripheld of een combinatie daarvan. De kostuums worden elk jaar steeds vindingrijker en kunstzinniger. Temidden van de opbloeiende natuur van het kasteelpark, dat behoort tot het grootste kasteel van Nederland, Kasteel de Haar, dompelen de fantasy liefhebbers zich onder in een aangenaam bad van middeleeuwse muziek, dans, lezingen, theatervoorstellingen en optochten.

A Fantastic Opportunity to be Part of a Comic Magazine as it is about to start

Comics have a long and proud history. The ancient paintings on cave walls were a graphic way of recording events of the time. Even preceding writing and the formulation of the written word picture drawings yielded a record of events.

Known records of these type of things are the cavemen paintings and the pictures on the walls of the Egyptian burial cambers in the Pyramids.

The invasion of England by the Normans (French) under William the Conqueror in 1066 AD was recorded on a 230ft tapestry known as the Bayeux Tapestry where the embroidered pictures are actually accompanied by words.

Modern comics have been around in one form or another for over two hundred years and are a popular way of easily telling a story. Just about every child has learned to read using simplified comics that grew and grew in complexity as the reading age increases. Marvel comics are renowned for the introduction of the Super Heroes whose fame has never died and even now in 2012 Batman and Captain America are still around although they may have morphed into movies.

But the use of cartoons in movies and on TV and their amazing success still has its base firmly in the pulp comic that most of us at one stage or another have read and cherished. In many countries the level of spoken English by the younger generation owe massively to the fact that the cartoon network is predominantly English so all kids have reinforcement from their English lessons at school.

Still in development this is a chance for readers to get in on the ground floor and join up as an owner by contributing to the capital required. The initial idea has been proposed by a Vietnamese man living in Denmark, Europe and is now ably assisted by other from around the world including Brits, Slovakians and Japanese guys all of whom love comics and Manga and are putting massive efforts in to realize the magazine.

All lover of Comic books and Manga are urged to visit the website and sign up. There are many ways you can contribute to make the project a success. Not the least of which is contributing funds but in addition you can assist by writing and submitting stories, advertising to your friends and acquaintances.
If you wish to really own part of the network contribute 1,000 Euros and membership of a new and exciting online comic bookshop is yours.

In Japan comics are still churned out and sold by the ton. Japan is the land of the manga where the comics for adults are A4 in sized and are often up to 2 inches thick.

In the UK there are now new Online Comic Shops and magazine for comic lovers. Here is where you can Buy Comics Online. Here is where you are invited to become a member, a shareholder, a writer of your own comic stories and where you can get paid artists to actually draw the pictures to turn your story line into your own comic.

Do you like to Buy Comics Online. An Online Comic Shops is now inviting you to join as a member before the launch.
