"When designing ComicsPLUS 8.0, it was very important for us to find new ways for potential fans to explore the world of digital comics," said iVerse Media CEO, Michael Murphey, "With Graphic Novel Rentals readers can get a complete story at a very low price, making it easier than ever to experience digital comics, and discover new favorite series."
Graphic Novels can be rented in the ComicsPLUS 8.0 app for iOS 8 for $1.99 for 24 hours, $2.99 for 48 hours, and $3.99 for 120 hours, and can be downloaded for offline reading on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, making it easy to enjoy the books without having to worry about being connected to the Internet.
