  • When you are looking at a series details you will most likely notice a new column called "View". As LEGAL versions of the comic books become available on the internet (most likely via the publisher) we will start linking to them for easy access to read them.

    For instance Image several #1's up for reading on their site. They gave us permission to link to them. So if you search for Walking Dead you will now see an "eye" icon. Click on this and you can read the issue.

    Marvel will be following shortly - some books are free (for now at least), but they all offer the first 7 pages for free. Hopefully eventually we can get all the publishers to do this. I would ultimately like for there to be some sort of "napster" service where you could pay a flat monthly fee to read any comic by any publisher.

  • That is the best idea ever... good thinking DoughBoy

    And too make some money.... You should ask marvel for some kind of affiliate program so whenever someone comes from here and signs up for a membership to marvel online you get a fee... don't know if they have anything like this but you should get something for sending them traffic.... just a thought...
    Not collecting any more but I still enjoy comics now and then...
