5/5 stars
Great comic

:
This is a great app, if you need to have a amazing looking and wonderfully written comic on your mobile device, this is it. Great price and well worth the ability to bring it along to show friends what you new comic addiction is. Love it, now we just need the second volume out. Yay dark horse.

4/5 stars
Amazing comic; app needs work.

:
I gave this app four stars because, at its core, it delivers exactly as promised. It is a clean and simple means to read a phenomenal comic on the iPhone.

That said, there are a couple of things that would really round out the experience. The navigation is too simplistic for a comic this size. If I want to see a page from an earlier issue, then jump to a much later page, the only way to accomplish that is to spend several seconds swiping like a madman to find it, and even that involves trial and error if I don't know the page number. My suggestion would be to make it easier to at least jump to specific issues, which you can build into the existing interface. That second slider is currently pretty much useless, so just change it to issue numbers. Adding a visual (thumbnails?) element to navigation would be nice, but the first suggestion is of vital importance.

My only other gripe is that there's no option to see a full page in its intended composition, or even to zoom. There are other comic apps that implement both features very well, and it's especially nice for fully appreciating the art on a page. Being an owner of the physical version of this collection, I feel the iPhone experience is diminished without this feature. The covers and splash pages are all cropped! Very uncool, especially on a display as lovely as the iPhone's.

There are other comic readers in the app store where I could enjoy the features I've described, with this comic and many others besides, but I figured Dark Horse would go all out with this dedicated app. I feel that this app does what it says on the label, but does not do justice to the source material.

This is a fantastic comic, and to really get the full experience you should buy the book. If that's the reason that this app feels somewhat crippled, then I'm displeased to have been charged five dollars for the chance to find that out. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have been happy to own both the app and the physical book. As it stands, I'll be sticking to the book.

5/5 stars
BUY IT!! 
