PHILADELPHIA — Stan Lee, whose career writing comic books has run from the golden age to contemporary times, is going digital.

Boom! Studios said last week that the man who helped create modern marvels such as the Fantastic Four and X-Men will see his current crop of comic series available online and on mobile devices through his own app by way of the Los Angeles publisher of comics and graphic novels.

Dubbed the “Stan Lee BOOM! Comics App,” the program is being offered through Apple’s iTunes app store. Also available through Boom!’s own app: “Soldier Zero,” “The Traveler” and “Starborn.”

The comics come with a free preview of the first issues but cost $1.99 for subsequent issues.

The titles will also be available for download on desktops, including Windows and Mac, through comiXology, Graphic.ly, iVerse and MyDigitalComics.

Lee said that given the proliferation of comic books into the digital sphere, it made sense to bring his own titles to market that way, too.

“What’s great about releasing this app is that it enables us to bring the joy and wonder of comics to the mobile fan and a whole new generation of readers,” Lee said. “Comics are a medium that transcends age.”

Digital comics have gained popularity and acceptance in recent months with most, if not all, major publishers — DC, Marvel, IDW, Dark Horse and Zenescope Entertainment, among others.

“With the easy accessibility of digital comics,” said Chip Mosher, marketing director of BOOM! Studios, “anyone who’s ever been curious to try comics now has the power to read them instantly.”
