Good news for those dedicated digital comics fans – comiXology has updated its app to included new way to organize your digital comics.

“When I ask comiXology fans what features they want, better ways to manage their books is at the top of the list,” says comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “Our customers buy tons of books and have trouble keeping track of what they have and haven’t read, or even what they just purchased, particularly across devices. Smart Lists bring the most relevant books front and center. I’m betting this becomes the home page for most of our customers.”
