We’ve added new streaming eLibrary service ComicsPlus, with over 80 comics publishers making available thousands of digital super hero, manga, children and indie comics across all audiences.
Major adult publishers include Archaia, Boom! Studios, Dynamite and Viz, whilst cool kids presses like Papercut, Andrews McMeel and Graphic Classics feature original children’s comics, as well as nonfiction versions of classic literature and funny cartoons like Garfield and Charlie Brown.
Also included are exciting, well known series like Adventure Time, Bone, Archie, Lumberjanes, Naruto, One Piece, Big Nate, Red Sonja and more. Browse by fantasy, crime, romance, movie and TV, horror and more, and then choose any comic you want.
There’s no limit to the number of titles you can take out through ComicsPlus, and comics are made available for 7 days. Now’s your chance to read any number of series from beginning to end! At the moment, enjoyment of ComicsPlus is limited to desktop only but mobile usage should be on its way soon.
