Anyone feel the same way I do about this: I'm really torn on the whole digital comics transition. Not that I don't mind owning a digital copy, as I feel like my boxes of comics is a sign that I already have too much physical stuff. It's the pricing. How can a digital comic cost as much as a physical one? Why am I paying $4.00 for a 15 minute read when on the same app storefront, I'm downloading a game for $.99 that provides hours of entertainment.

I feel like there's a whole generation of potential comic book fans out there that Marvel /DC/ Others aren't tapping into until this solve this.

There must be a better business model than this.

A new business model for a new generation that doesn't know any better, unfortunately :roll:

I'm assuming this is just due to ease of convenience for those who just download, download, and download, but seeing how everything is making the digital jump, big comic publishers were bound to follow suit, regardless of the pricing patterns they decided to follow.

Good luck out there Bobobo. You're our only last and final hope of surpassing Superman in Death Battle.

I really want to read Bone. I remember as a kid they published parts in Disney Adventures magazine and I liked it but didn't really understand at the time.
You're so vain. You probably think this signature's about you.

It is... but it's gone on a bit too long. So much so that they've started the new series that were supposed to happen after it ended early.

I wish Marvel would just do a reboot, like New 52.

Oh Hell no. There are ENOUGH reboots.

I've been reading Marvel's old Transformers comics lately. Holy crap they're awesome. Like, 1986 movie kind of awesome, possibly even cooler than that movie in fact.
