Barnes & Noble & Graphic.Ly Launch Comic Reading Apps On Nook Color

Bleeding Cool reported this weekend on Barnes & Noble’s move towards print floppy comics in June. More on that to come, but here’s news from the other side. Graphic.Ly, when they’re not busy buying DC ads for iFanboy have been working on a new way to distribute digital comics.

Today, our friends at Barnes & Noble launched a major update to the e-reader, the Nook Color.  The update included the addition of an app store, so that you can now purchase and run apps in addition to reading e-books.And what are some of those apps? Why they just happen to be some of the most popular graphic novels provided exclusively through Graphicly!

Starting today, Nook Color owners can purchase and downloads apps for reading the following amazing graphic novels:

  • Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 – Archaia
  • Wanted – Top Cow/Image
  • Irredeemable – BOOM! Studios

We’ve worked with Barnes & Noble to specially craft these apps to be optimized for reading on the Nook Color, and I’ve got to say, they’re pretty sweet. The Nook Color is a great device (running on the Android platform from Google) and is super affordable at only $249.  So if you’re looking for a new way to read digital comics, you might want to give the Nook Color a try, especially now that it’s got Graphicly on it.

Of course, whether you’d want to read comics on your Nook when you can now play Angry Birds, is a different matter…
