Playing with the Comic Books Application on Facebook

August 31st, 2008 by Martin co-conspirator and friend Stephanie invited me to the Comic Books Application on Facebook a few weeks ago now, and I’ve been playing with it a little bit each week. It’s an interesting way to keep track of your pull list, and to browse comics that were released the past (or current) week. It’s also set up to keep track of your collection if you use it that way, and allow for easy discussion of individual comic book issues, which each have their own page, and generally browse comics by creator, series, or publisher. (Doubtless there are more ways to browse the issues as well.)

I posted a few weeks ago in the forums, and the developer Chris has been really responsive and helpful. He even added some of the features I was asking for, which goes quite a ways toward convincing me that this thing is going to be around and maintained into the future.

You can add the Comic Book application to your facebook profile to show your friends what you’re reading, or just to check out all the cool features I’ve listed above.

UPDATE: I’ve just created a page for on Facebook. Stop on by and become a fan, why don’t you?
