Fresh Comics: Putting the ‘Metro’ back in Superman’s ‘Metropolis’

Fresh Comics: This Week Fresh Comics: Cover View Fresh Comics: Map View

As a regular comic book reader, finding out what issues are coming out every Wednesday is the highlight of my week. Unfortunately, there are not always good apps to scratch this itch, so I created Fresh Comics last year to solve this problem.

Previously available on Apple and Android devices, Fresh Comics made its Windows Phone debut earlier this month as a completely rewritten native app using the Metro design language. By taking advantage of Metro’s affinity for print layout and content, Fresh Comics for Windows Phone incorporates the cover images from each week’s 150+ new comics to implement a dynamic interface that highlights the newest covers every week. An innovative tagging feature allows you to follow your favorite series, publishers, and creators. Never miss a new issue from your favorite artist again.

The app not only includes the week’s newest comics, but it also takes advantage of WP7’s location features & Bing Maps to help you find the nearest local comic shop. The Fresh Comics store database includes thousands of shops in the US, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Need your weekly comic fix while travelling? Not a problem.

The app includes no ads and is completely free. New issues for the upcoming week are typically updated each Friday or Saturday. You can download Fresh Comics for Windows Phone from the Marketplace.

Thanks giving my first WP7 app a look and I’ll be sticking around in the comments to answer any questions and to collect any feedback that you may have. I’d love to heard what you think!
