Does anyone here use this service? If so let me know how you've liked it (in terms of readability and selection). I love the concept..is it worth the money?

I know some people on here have paid for the service, because they discussed titles that hadn't been released yet (since they were available online beforehand).

I have a year's subscription and I love it. The "newest" titles are about 6 months old, but there are 1000's of older ones to read, so I don't really mind :)

I had it. Tried to pay for re-subscribing.... my money was taken, but I can't access the stuff. WTF?!

I love it but it lacks a lot of the obscure stuff I often want to read. Sometimes I wish I just liked the X-Men and Spider-Man.

Also, they can skip issues. I've recently been reading Moon Knight, and they were missing issue #12 and #20 for some reason...

@Danial79: Well thats annoying. I love the idea of being able to sit down and read an entire series. Recently I found that my public library had the entire Ultimate Spiderman and I really liked reading it from start to finish. 
 
Maybe I'll try a month and see how it goes. It looks like theres lots of stuff to check out.

@lazyturtle: That's not the always the case, I should add. Most story arcs are complete. Planet Hulk, for instance, ran over 17 issues, and only one of those was missing, so I didn't feel it was necessary to buy the trade just to catch up on that single one...
