“The ability to provide instant access to digital materials is a key differentiator for Comics Plus. Instant access establishes credibility for Comics Plus among Gen Z patrons using school libraries and who are accustomed to Amazon’s Comixology or apps like MangaFox, Webtoon, and CrunchyRoll, subscription services that provide access to manga and anime.” [Digital Public Library Ecosystem 2023]


“This is probably the strongest manga subscription service available in English outside of Shonen Jump and Crunchyroll… The sheer breadth of content ­represents a value proposition that cannot be ­ignored. With wide-open access for readers and custom title control for institutions, this versatile comics collection will serve graphic novel lovers well.” [FULL REVIEW]


“Collecting new and backlist comics from dozens of publishers, with new titles added weekly, this treasure trove of content represents tremendous value for school, public, and academic libraries. Access is unlimited and simultaneous, and themed lists make it easy for readers to discover new comics. A comics bonanza.” [FULL REVIEW]


“It is important to consider that there are no waiting lists, titles can be read an unlimited number of times by multiple users simultaneously, and the ‘granular title control gives administrators the power to customize Comics Plus to suit’ readers’ preferences.… Highly recommended. General readers, lower-division undergraduates, and two-year students.” [FULL REVIEW]
