In a development that would make even Comic Book Guy proud, digital comic book platform comiXology is teaming up with Matt Groening's Bongo Comics to bring America's favorite family to the iPad. The partners announced the Simpsons Comics app for iOS, available today, at a panel at this week's San Diego Comic-Con.

The app is a free download for the iPad and the iPhone and will launch with a selection of digital versions of both recent and classic Bongo titles like Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson and Radioactive Man. ComiXology will also give away a digital copy of Simpsons Comics #100 on its website for a limited time to mark the release of the app.

New Bongo comics will be released on the iOS app for purchase within a month of their publication. Readers will be able to buy and download at least two digital releases a week through the app. "Our plan is to help Simpsons comic fans to experience the fun of collecting our comics in the digital world the same way they would collect printed comics," said Bill Morrison, head of digital development for Bongo.
