Read award winning titles in Google Play Books on your HD Android tablet or phone

Publisher Image Comics has brought their library single edition and series comics to Google Play Books. Titles you know and love, like Saga and The Walking Dead (yes, it started as a comic) are now found right in Google Play and available to read today from your Android phone or tablet.

Over 500 titles, including numerous Eisner Award winners and New York Times best sellers are available for purchase, and to kick things off with a bang Image is making the first issues of The Walking Dead, Saga, Chew, Invincible and Super Dinosaur series for free to Google Play customers.

The comics are still available through other venues, such as Comixology and the Amazon Kindle. Publisher Eric Stephenson says:

It’s exciting to bring digital versions of Image Comics titles to the Google Play Store. Our philosophy toward digital content is expanding as the market evolves and grows, and this is just one of many steps we're taking as we continue to move into the future.

Check out the full list of titles from your browser or your Android at Google Play.

Yep, and I remember each book the original founders were from when they were working for Marvel. I've been collecting 30 years and was in the business running stores and comic cons for over 4 years at one point. Great stuff.

Took a while to find them. . The article link doesn't work. You have to search for 'Robert Kirkman'. Alas, as far as I can tell none are free.

If you go to the "Books" section, it's one of the headlines. Got the 1st issue of Walking Dead free, looks great on the Nexus 7.

Now if only BOOM! would hop onto Google Play so I can get my Adventure Time and Regular show fix straight from the Play Store and not Comixology.

Sweet! Downloading to my Z10. Thanks for the heads up.

On the plus side: some of the best of Jim Lee, scott Campbell and Silvestri comic works on digital.

On the downside: a whole LOT of Rob Liefeld garbage. That guy should not be entitled to any qfurther royalties.

The neighborhood certainly has gone to hell

So where is the competition for the Note 3? Oh right there isn't any...

On one hand YAY!! the more places to buy Dgital Comics the more competative prices will remain.

On the other hand Digital Comics are slowly Killing Local Comic Shops. LCS are where Comc Fans are born. Without LCS we would have never gotten wonderful titles like The Walking Dead, Watchmen, Sandman, Preacher, 100 Bullets, Fables, The Crow Bakerstreet ETC.. I'd go so far as to say in a digital era Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would never have managed to get the foothold that led it to become a BRAND.

In short: If you buy a Digital Comic make sure to stop by your LCS and spend some $$ there so we don't lose out on the great comics of the future.
