Marvel Comics Jumps Joins the HTML5 Crowd

We all know what an ebook is, but what about an e-comic book? Marvel Comics just joined the HTML5 revolution, and is using HTML5 to power its online comics division–and the experience is optimized for the Chrome web browser.

Similar to their iPad app, their new web-based application features over 1,600 comics, including some that are free, and others that sell for $2 per comic. Marvel exec Ira Rubenstein sees the app as an inevitable expansion, stating that “Marvel Comics on Chrome is the next step of Marvel;s commitment to making high-definition digital comics available to users anytime, anywhere.”

Readers are able to click on-screen arrows to flick through the pages, and purchases made through the Marvel Comics app on iTunes will also be accessible via the Chrome store at no additional cost.
