Marvel Comics To Come To The iPad?

Apple and Disney have a special relationship ever since Disney bought Pixar back in 2006 for $7.4 billion ( turning Steve Jobs – at the time CEO at Pixar – into the largest individual shareholder ). When Steve Jobs wanted movies and TV shows for iTunes, Disney was among the first ones to jump on board.

So what does all this have to do with comics on the iPad. Well, Disney not only owns ABC but also Marvel Comics. Lately all the classic superheroes were brought to us through movies and TV shows, and now the iPad could be the first mainstream computing device with the interface, the power, the battery, and the gorgeous color screen to truly bring comic books to life.

And Apple already knows how to do it – they did a test run with Tyrese Gibson’s Mayhem book, a project that I guessed back in September was a precursor to Apple’s e-book format. It wouldn’t be too hard to bring new comics – and all sorts of old classic titles – into the digital realm in brilliant color. The iPad’s screen was practically made for it.

This would be a very smart move because they will not only attract a massive and loyal number geek followers, but it will also crush the other players in the e-book game ( such as Amazon and Sony ).
