I got the complete US and UK strips from him on CD years ago. He put in an incredible amount of work putting them together, and I was very happy to be able to get them - a fantastic value too.
Me too, although people offered him better quality replacements for some of the strips, which is what ended up on the website, and then even better ones came along for the book.

Re: The Complete Comic Book Collection DVD worth it?

Can't really add too much more to what people here have already said, but yes -- this DVD-ROM is a fabulous release, even at a $40 price-point. What I really love is that it reprints each issue (DC, Marvel, Gold Key) in its entirety, ads, lettercolumns and all; the latter being particularly valuable for insight into what the Powers-That-Were and the fans were thinking during those years.

You'll save much headache from hunting down individual issues either online or in comic book shops with this collection -- every issue is printable, as well.

Only thing I would add is that I personally find it a little frustrating reading them as PDFs due to the amount of scrolling needed (especially since I read them pretty zoomed in). But that's a really, really, really small complaint for an otherwise fantastic product.

The PDF's work great when reading on a tablet in portrait mode.

My problem is that monitors these days are all widescreen, so my new monitor isn't as tall as my old one and so I can't fit as much of a page onto the screen, at least not at full size. On my laptop, I can just turn it on its side and rotate the page so that the screen shape fits the image better.
