    How do you access ComiXology Unlimited? Every time I’ve tried it rejects me for being outside the US.

    DC Universe's Comics library currently features more than 23,000 titles that get added and subtracted on a rotating basis.

    According to their website, Comixology Unlimited has "over 25,000 comics from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and more". So it has about 2,000 more comics, but they're spread across multiple publishers, instead of just DC.
    If I ever sign up for a digital comics service, it's going to be Comixology Unlimited, only because I don't want to be limited to just one publisher, like I would be if I went with Marvel Unlimited or DC Universe.

    To be honest--I've never tried. But when I lived overseas I spent 8 years buying from them exclusively. Recently every time I log on to look at the site, I see DC comics maybe about a year old being offered--so I was just curious.

    Ah. I’ve been buying from them since 2011. I’d like to do the Unlimited but I can’t. C’est la vie.

    I know people were discussing weekly drops in the Expanse thread but I'd def binge this straight through if it were possible.

    Well this is perfect since I am about 3 episodes from finishing season 1 on Max. What an odd little show, I mean Rick and Morty level weirdness. A sentient gender queer that can transport itself and it’s inhabitants anywhere, a donkey that is an inter dimensional portal, inside Jane’s mind, the butts :lol:.

    Really am enjoying this show immensely and knowing we’re getting a second season is great.

    That second trailer is great. We get some nice glimpses of the Candlemaker, Red Jack, and the SeX Men, plus the return of Willoughby Kipling!

    Well, they dropped three episodes today, wasn't expecting that. Pretty decent so far, seems in line with season 1, I think if you liked that you will like these.

    Due to the nature of the stories, it's more personal and intimate than other shows which does mean sometimes it's slower and more claustrophobic at times. Surprisingly to me, I think I might've actually appreciated it being spread out weekly but I couldn't stop myself from watching it all.

    Loved the visuals in episode 1 with the erector set elevator and the slot car ride.

    I hope Danny can be fixed but I would understand for Niles and Dorothy's story why they may have needed to do that.

    I liked the car flinging bit.

    Going by the trailers Danny does get fixed.

    It looks like Maura Lee, Flex, and the other Dannyzens pop up to throw them a party. Going by how season one explained how Danny works that'll jump start their healing process. By the time the Sex Men show up it looks like they'll be a street again as that's Peeping Tom's Perpetual Cabaret interior during that spot in the second trailer.

    Man, this show is just my speed, it's too bad it appears to get so little buzz. I like that no matter how crazy things get it delivers such rock solid performances and the actress playing Dorothy is really good in what looks to be her first screen role.

    I wonder if we'll get to see Danny's new final form. I'm picturing him like some crazy art vehicle from Burning Man.

    Just started watching the first season this week, and after three episodes, I am loving it so far. There's actually a lot more heart and emotion to it than I was expecting. I was expecting just a bunch of crazy nonsense, but it's actually been a lot deeper than that.

    I was pretty sure from what I'd seen and heard I was going to enjoy it, but I'm loving it even more than I expected.

    Watched the next couple episodes today, and these ones were pretty interesting.
    I know a lot of people compared Kipling to Constantine when the episodes or originally came out, and I can definitely see it. I'm a huge fan of Mark Shepard, so that he played Kipling made it easier for me to overlook that.
    It was nice to see The Chief again in the second one.
    Rita finally got her big hero moment when she stopped Kipling from killing the kid.
    I was really surprised by the reveal that Jane is just another one of Kay's personas. I noticed looking at the Wikipedia entry for the show that they have different actresses listed for Jane's different personalities, so does that mean that they are voiced by different actresses, or do they show up on screen as different people at some point?

    the latter
    When Jane talks to the other voices in her head she sees the personalities as distinct individuals.
