You may have read about the second issue of Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's critically acclaimed comic Sex Criminals being banned by Apple, preventing digital comic retailer Comixology from selling it within their iOS app. Well, Zdarsky recently announced on Twitter that not only is Apple rejecting the upcoming third issue, but they've pulled the previously available first issue. There are now three ways to read the book on your iOS device:
- Buy it from Comixology's website, then download it from your iOS Comixology app.
- Buy it directly from Image Comics as a DRM-free PDF, then sync it to your preferred iOS PDF reader.
- Buy it from iBooks.
Could you repeat that last one for me? I think I misheard you.
Nope, you read that right. In a truly bizarre left hand-right hand situation, Sex Criminals has been available through the iBooks store this entire time, and that's likely to continue with issue 3, proving that reality continues to be at least as deranged as a comic book where people freeze time when they orgasm.
