Me too. I just bought JMS's Superman Earth One, Part Two myself. I have big collection of .cbr's. I use ACV (A Comic Viewer) for Android to view them. ACV should be on the list. It's viewer for comic book files so you can't buy comics on there.

I wish Marvel or DC would make a subscription program where you would pay a monthly fee to read unlimited comics without having to buy them. It would be great for reading back issues and current without the risk of damging your stash. I would easily pay for this comparable to a Netflix streaming option.

I use manga watcher for android. They do a very good job of adding new sites as old ones get shut down.

there is one in particular that has the app thing down. xkcd is webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language, and is insanely popular online.
