However, I realize that digital comics have their advantages too. I think it would be best if every paper comic comes with a code to download the digital version for free, however I understand why companies would oppose such a policy.
Most vinyl records have a code inside to download the mp3 version of the album. I love it! Isn't DC still releasing some of the New 52 titles as combo packages, too? Last time I checked they cost $1 more than the regular issues. I don't know about Marvel and the other publishers.
I just bought the print versions of Trillium (1-3) a week ago although I had already owned purchased the digital copy but I really want to own and feel and smell it.
I just finished reading Letter 44 #1. The story is absolutely amazing and one of the biggest reasons it is such a strong story is that Soule was ballsy enough to model the presidents after Bush and Obama and make it clear from the very beginning of the story that this could be the present-day US... hiding something else... again. Otherwise it would be just another story about an alien threat (and how some government would be dealing with it). I mean an alien threat is nothing new as far as story-telling goes. This story and the "what if...?" wouldn't be so intriguing and, more importantly, credible if the presidents weren't very similar to Bush & Obama. Like I said it would be just another story.
I can't wait for the next issue.
Is it just me or do we have an incredible amount of very good comics at the moment?
Frankly, I had never watched and read any episode or comic but when I saw the new series I immediately knew I would like it and then I did it. Samurai Jack and the Threads of Time is awesome. I'm definitely getting this trade, too.
