Hellboy And Umbrella Academy Now Available On iPhone

Dark Horse has announced that Mike Mignola's Hellboy and Gerard Way's The Umbrella Academy are now available on the iPhone.  
 
If you've read either books, you know how great they are.  Alan Moore has called Hellboy "a passport to a corner of funnybook heaven you may never want to leave."  Grant Morrison has called The Umbrella Academy "one of the great new comic books of this decade."  I know people seem a little reluctant to have 'digital' comics but if you look at the price, this is a great way to check out some really good books you might have missed out on.  Also, how often are stuck somewhere wishing you had something to read.  I don't usually make a habit of carrying around comics with me.  Having comics on your iPhone might not be your first preference but it's worth checking out in this format.
 
The first issues of both books are now available through the iTunes Store with subsequent issues available soon.  Seed Of Destruction is available as four issues at $0.99 each or as a bundle of all four issues for $3.99.  The first issue of Apocalypse Suite is available for free, with issues #2 - #6 at $0.99 each (or a bundle of all six issues for $4.99).

I'm gonna check this out definitely. Anything to make my train rides more enjoyable lol, plus it can be rather cumbersome trying to read an actual comic on a crowded train.
