2000 AD has announced its first app for Apple devices today, meaning that the weekly anthology title has now gone same-digital worldwide. It hits the shelves every Wednesday in the UK, but until now, overseas fans have had to either wait for the the physical copy to hit their shores, or purchase the digital version a week later.
Read on for more details.
From 2000 AD’s press release;
“Making 2000 AD as accessible as possible is something we’ve been working towards for some time,” said Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD. “For the first time we can offer easy, quick digital subscriptions so that readers can download the latest issue with a single push of a button.
“If you’ve ever had trouble getting hold of the latest 2000 AD, don’t like waiting for the physical Prog to reach your shores, or you just want the ease of having digital copies then our new app is ideal.
“With the DREDD 3D film coming in September and amazing storylines from some of the top talent in the industry, there’s never been a better time to subscribe to 2000 AD.”
The app will also feature a free 69-page sampler issue, with recent stories such as Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos, Zombo, and Ichabod Azrael, offering those new to 2000 AD a chance to sample just what the British anthology title offers.
Using the app, users have the conventional selection of purchase offers, with single issues being priced at $2.99 (£1.99), a month subscription costing $10.99 (£7.49), three months at $29.99 (£20.99), or a yearly subscription of $109.99 (£74.99) with the added bonus of the three months of back issues available for free.
If you have never read 2000 AD, then I highly recommend that you check this out and take a look at the free sample issue. There’s some great stuff in there.
