Zap-Kapow! A Guide To Comic Books In Your Pocket

By Bam Ninja LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Need to know the value of an old issue of Superman or The Avengers? Want to see what the price is for the first comic book legend Stan Lee did for Marvel Comics? Missing a few issues of Batman, The Amazing Spider-Man, Hulk or other some other hero and can't remember which ones? Have a variant zombie cover or pile of old horror comics you need to know more about?

Stay up-to-date with Zap-Kapow! As new issues and price updates are released every month, you'll never need to lug around a bulky comic book price guide or other reference material again.

Search Zap-Kapow's library of over 175,000 issues for publisher, writer, artist and price guide info as well as to see (and save) covers to make sure you're referencing the right comic book. From The Walking Dead to Iron Man, superheroes, horror or cartoon comic books, Zap-Kapow has it all!

Monthly updates are available as in-app purchases that add over 1,150 new issues and variants to the 175,000 that are already there, as well as updates to the prices themselves. Any update gives you ALL the updates. Skip a few months and then your 99-cent in-app update will still give you all the months you missed. Update every month, or whenever you want for the same price and get the latest ... it's completely up to you!

NOTE: A few folks have also mentioned in the reviews that they couldn't find titles they were searching for. Nearly 9 times out of 10 they're misspelling it (i.e. "Spider-Man" not "Pider-Man"). Spelling is important.

Also just want to make it super-clear that we actually read and reply to ALL e-mails and questions we're sent. Every one of them. So if you are having an issue, can't find a title, etc., please hit us up at and we'll troubleshoot, update and otherwise go out of our way to remedy your issue. We'd much prefer that opportunity to a negative review that is usually a misunderstanding or just plain inaccurate.

And, just to double-down on the above's explanation of how updates work, monthly price guide updates are NOT REQUIRED to use this app. If you update to be current down the line once or never is up to you, but you have access to 175,000+ issues from the day you purchase it on.

Thanks, see you in the 25-cent bins!

True Comic Book Fans Love This App!!

**the latest UPDATE makes this APP even BETTER!! They are still very ready, willing & able to add any missing info, so it helps us all when users submit update suggestions regularly**

I am a lifelong comic book collector & fan, and this price guide app is AWESOME!! It is exactly what I would want it to be, and provides accurate & up to date pricing info on a very broad base of Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age, & Modern Age comics.
If any info is missing or incorrect, the developers are very responsive in making corrections and updating information. Everything I've ever requested has been done, and quickly. Well worth the 99 cent monthly update fee to keep pricing current. I am so happy to have this guide in my pocket for reference when shopping at conventions or back issue bins. Thanks for the great product!

This is a really great product

I am a long time user of Comic Base (a PC application) and have only been using Zap-Kapow! on my iPhone for about four or five months now, but I can tell you, this is a great product. While Comic Base is very useful for creating a database of your entire collection, Zap-Kapow! fulfills two critical roles for any comic collector.

1. With Zap-Kapow!, I can get a quick ball park price on a real time basis when I am at a comic shop. This helps me ensure I am not going to overpay for my books.
2. With Kap-Kapow!, using the Want List, which I am now really starting to use, it basically creates my shopping list of wanted or missing issues and helps me confirm what I am looking for without bringing my 37 page (with double side printing, only 19 page) Comic Base printout report.

This is a really great product. On the one occasion that I found a missing title, I emailed the Zap-Kapow! guys and they told me they were putting it into the next upgrade. I highly recommend this tremendous product !

Best App/Resource for Comic Book Collectors

I've used this app for quite some time and is by far the best available for comic book pricing...A great resource for collectors! If you're having trouble finding something, especially from the major publishers, then you're doing something wrong as this app is pretty much idiot-proof.
