I'm a big comic fan and it'll be a big week with San Diego Comic Con kicking off. In honor of that, Marvel is offering a 99 cent promo for the first month of it's Marvel Unlimited subscription service. The interface is not as good as ComiXology's IMO, but the value here is incredible. I love reading classic Spider-mans.

Awesome! However the biggest part of my love for comics is nostalgic, which means I want to hold them in my hand! (And throw them across my bedroom floor and sit cross-legged and thumb through them for hours).

@cjl49 Haha, right there with you, Calvin. I can't tell you how many long boxes I used to have in my parent's basement. But it just became impractical at some point. I've been reading them digitally for a few years now, and I really don't think you miss much. Interested to hear once you try this out if you'll stick with digital.

Have totally and 100% not decided if I'm thrilled or repulsed by digital comics. But for 99 cents I'm going to make an informed decision!

@MackFlavelle Why would you be repulsed by digital comics?
Mack Flavelle@mackflavelle ·
@joelblackmore Lots of little things: The curmudgeons at the comic book stores have been a glorious gate keeper in my 20 years buying comics. The smell of unopened books. Knowing that there's an untouched Conan sitting on the book shelf waiting for me. Like music the digital comics will give wings to a whole new breed of creator who can only afford to publish independently and digitally which is great- but it's the bullet in the head of a comic stores and many associated experiences which I love.

Never mind. The Canada thing ends me again.
