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

Turns out when they got Marvel they also got Icon, so they now have Powers, Criminal, the Dark Tower and some other stuff I've never heard of like Casanova, and Scarlet.

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

Well, they have the very first appearances of most of the big characters. As for modern, most of the oldest modern stuff is from the late '90s-early '00s.

I thought the Masterworks were just the early comics?

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

Well, then I'm pretty sure that most of that stuff is probably on Comixology as individual issues then. They do have a ton of the early stuff for most of the big DC and Marvel heroes.

Speaking of Comixology, they are doing 48 hour The Flash yesterday and today.

They are for some. But not for me. I like holding a book and turning pages. Comics, same. I'll never go digital.

I'm just hoping they do something Marvel, like Spider-Man, or Iron Man or Fantastic Four next.
