Times are changing, and as our world continues to go digital so do some of our favorite pastimes. With the creation of eReaders, it has become easy and convenient to carry your favorite novels, magazines and newspapers around in your pocket.

Now this ease of access is extending to the world of comic books. All of our favorite superheroes are now readily available at our fingertips. It’s an exciting advance in technology for those who find pleasure in a good graphic novel.

The digital comic book is no longer the future; it is the here and now and already widely available. Thanks to new and upcoming computer software, it is easier than ever before to take those colorful panels we know and love and provide them in a digital format for eReader distribution. Thanks to such advances, artists can take their work to places they never have before, and breathe new life into an industry recently revived by our human hunger for superhero movies.

Going digital not only inducts a wealth of new fans into the fold, it also allows for long time fans and collectors to experience comics in a new way. You no longer have to risk the wear and tear of your favorite print editions; you can now pick them up in the form of a tablet, laptop or even a smartphone and read them whenever and wherever you want. This allows your immaculate paper copies to stay pristine, while you still get the pleasure of enjoying them.

You can also experience new characters, story arcs and up and coming artists, which you may never have done before when shopping for traditional format comics. In many ways, the digital format is democratizing artistic output in all mediums, allowing underground authors and artists to publish and market their own work.

Because of the availability of the digital comic book, you can now also pick up books for free or relatively cheap. The lack of printing costs means that many new artists and writers can put volumes of their work up for people to experience for minimal costs, gaining them fans and allowing them do more with future work. You can even get an entire series of comics for free, which is sure to keep some people reading and asking for more.

Digital comic books, unlike their print counterparts, can be easily accessed anywhere through many different devices. These days you can use your computer, eReader, mp3 player and even your smartphone to access your digital libraries. You lose none of the integrity, as the art is just as sharp and resolute as it is in print, and you save money and time. No longer do you have to worry about spending top dollar in a store to get what you want out of a comic book.

Change is hard, but in some cases change works. This is one of those cases. Whether you are new to the world of comics, or someone who grew up pursuing other worlds through the eyes of superheroes, this is for you.
