Expensive but good
This is definitely an expensive app compared to most, but more reasonable when you compare it to the typical price of a graphic novel. Even better, this one has various and flexible viewing options that you can change at any time. You can even view it in different languages. Entertaining "read".
The Wagner Files
It's really impressive to have this terrific book app on my iPad. I'm quite stunning by its out-standing artwork design and the interactive section is truly amazing. Love it. Wish I could found this application more earlier, at least before the price increase lol.
I was a hold out but am really warming up to this newer genre of interactive graphic novels. 5 stars all day and a great addition to my collection.
