Americas Army comic tablet app

Army unveils next chapter of recruiting comic app

The free comics app for iPad and Android tablets now features the second issue of the America’s Army comic series. In the this issue, “Rise to the Challenge,” readers follow the life of Roy Lacroix from a high school student to a Special Forces medic deployed in Czervenia.
                                                                                                      
The main purpose of the comic is to enlighten readers about soldiers and their missions, their values, their jobs or Military Occupational Specialties, the high-tech equipment and gear they use and the vast network of support on which they rely.  If fans want to learn more they can explore the app’s interactive intelligence section that showcases characters, state-of-the-art gear, technology, weapons, aircraft and more.

The comic app was developed and written by the Army Game Studio, developers of the highly successful America's Army PC games, which have been a useful educational tool, not to mention a fun experience, for almost 10 years. It is now in its third major incarnation.
