The Walt Disney Publishing Division has just released Disney Comics, a free app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Given an iBookstore bookshelf look, the initial outing contains fifty titles ranging from free to in app purchases that range between $0.99 and $3.99 for a themed collection. Titles include both old and new Disney characters including those from Toy Story and Cars along with old favorites like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. It will work in both portrait and landscape modes.
The new app offers features like auto-play and sound effects, along with a variety of modes of reading. Disney intends to digitally re-publish individual stories as well as graphic novels from their massive collection of older content along with newer titles. Disney creates over 25,000 pages of original comic pages per year and delivers them to over one billion readers. That’s a lot of readers, to be honest. Whew. The app is live in the App Store right now, so head on over and check it out.
