Lossy Compression Algorithms
I can’t prove it, but in at least the issues I’ve purchased, DC seem to be applying a lossy compression scheme (think JPEG or similar) to the digital representations of their comics. This results in ugly compression artifacts that make reading an unpleasant experience. It's simply never acceptable to use lossy bitmap compression for text or hand-drawn color graphics - there are existing lossless algorithms that compress nearly as well and cause no drop in quality from the reference material. I have no doubt DC want the experience of reading a comic on an iPad to be just as good as reading on paper, and I'm optimistic they will make fixing this defect their utmost priority. Until that time however, I simply can't recommend this application.
