A new app will let you read comics on the Nintendo Switch

[post_ads]The Nintendo Switch is a versatile device: it’s super portable, and the availability of apps like Hulu means that it’s more than just a gaming device. Now, you can add reading comic books to the list of things you can do with it. An app called InkyPen will launch in November, and will give players the ability to read thousands of comics on the device via a subscription.

InkyPen released a short teaser earlier this week that shows off the app in action. Readers use the controls to scroll in and around the pages in handheld mode or in TV mode. A monthly subscription (priced at $7.99 a month) will grant users access to the company’s full catalog when it’s released in November. According to io9, that catalog will include comics from publishers like Andrews McMeel, Dynamite, IDW, les Humano├»des Associ├ęs, Valiant, and others, although it won’t include the big two publishers like DC and Marvel. That said, there’s a lot to look forward to from those publishers — you can see comics like Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key and Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius’s The Incal in the teaser, both of which are fantastic.
 
The portability is one of the Switch’s real advantages, but if you don’t have time to sit down and play a quick game or if you’re just not in the mood for playing, this app should provide a good alternative activity while you’re out and about.
