Re: Digital comics are they worth it ? disscussion and comments:

Not, but I might check out American Vampire later. So far I've read Batman: Year One, Green Lanten: Secret Origin, Superman: Last Son and Fables: Legends in Exile. I'm thinking about checking out Witchblade and it's spinoffs, The Darkness, Magdalena and Angelus next.

Oy.

The whole Witchblade/Darkness/Angelus Triumvirate gives me a headache.

I enjoy the universe, but I can't keep the lore straight in my head anymore.

Yeah, I was reading about it on wikipedia the other day and it does sound pretty crazy. But, I like crazy mythologies like that, so I'm looking forward to checking it out.

It is driving me nuts that they don't have Powers on Comixology. I'm thinking it might be one I'll have to do in Trades.

There's a comic community called ZcultFM you should really check out if you enjoy comics. Sign up while you can, it's about to go Private/Invite only in the next few days.

Re: Digital comics are they worth it ? disscussion and comments:

I don't save 90% of the comics I read so I don't need hard copies. And the iPad screen is a great way to read them.

There is also currently, at least at DC, a series of releases of old books that I read when I was a kid (for example: O'Neil/Adams Bat titles, the Wein-Dillon JLA series) that I enjoy looking at for nostalgia purposes.

Meanwhile, the local comic book shop I've frequented for nearly thirty years is turning into a place where the books I want are sold out, the books I don't care about are filling up the rack, my ever-shrinking pull list is often screwed up and my store owner whines constantly about how no one shops there, while at the same time saying he doesn't want to waste money trying to advertise to bring in new readers.

Conversely, with my iPad and the day and date program, I can download the few books I still read from the big two and read them whenever I feel like it, including on a plane without lugging a stack of books with me.

I'm definitely moving more and more towards e-comics.

You know, I've got zero interest in the Dark Tower in itself, but someday I do want to read it, because I want to see what Jae Lee has been toiling away at for the past decade.

I miss that guy. Probably the best artist of his generation.
