I quite like it. There's a pretty big selection of comics. It's not perfect, there are certain series where they skip around and have holes in the collection (for example with Avengers they skip from issue #277 to #345), but there are tons of book on there, and with a lot of them the entire book is available. The newer the issue is the more likely it is to be on available, so stuff what is from within 10 years or so is likely to be on there.

It was $60 for a year subscription. I truly find it to be worth it. Within a week it had already paid for itself. I'd read enough books that if I'd bought them it would have been over $60.

I also find it convenient for reading stuff I already own. Instead of having to search through long boxes I can just read it online. It's nice.

I think when I eventually get an iPad, I might look more seriously at digital comics. I have an ipod touch and I've read some free stuff from DC and some other companies and I'm not a fan of it.

Is that the current stuff? I had been thinking about it and I believe I read the first issue and thought it was interesting.

Yes that is the current stuff. Issue #500 came out last week and perfect if your looking for a jump on spot.

I'm not looking to read Marvel on a monthly basis. Just pick and choose some good Marvel stories that I can get in a collection. The current FF sounds pretty good so I'll get it eventually. Marvel seems much more on the ball when it comes to trading then DC so that's cool. I just want to read various Marvel stuff but don't want to commit to monthly titles.

Fair enough. I still recommend Fraction's Iron Man and most of it is already out in trade. World's Most Wanted is where I would reccomend you start.

I believe there's an Omnibus that collects the first 19 issues of Fraction's Invincible Iron Man series, and is a real steal at it's retail price of $40 (and that's without any sort of discount).

Really? I have never heard of an omnibus costing that little. Amazing. I will have to check that out as well.

Im going to have to look into this for realsies.... Does DC do anything like this yet, does anyone know?

The Dark Avengers Omnibus is 29.99 on Amazon. I bought it today. 32 bucks for 400 pages of one of my favorite comic runs?

YES!!

No, unfortunately they don't. You can purchase individual DC issues online, but they don't have the same type of thing as Marvel. It sucks because I'd be all over it.
