  • Enjoyed the blog. I don't think I had any of the original What If's (nor do I now), but had a couple of the second series in my original collection. This new one coming out looks interesting enough for sure. It is a "maybe" at the moment, but I know my curiosity may eventually get the best of me and want to nab that one haha.
    As far as the digital comics, to be honest, I haven't checked any out yet. I am still old school and love the feel of the pages and even the smell of the old books. It sounds as if you got quite the bargain on those issues though. Another thing that my curiosity is going to get the best of me on, and will have to check out some digital comics.
    Big Thor fan here too, and I don't have that particular issue, so thanks for that too.

  • Spector, I love the look, touch, and smell of paper comics too, but digital is a great way to go when you want more than you can really afford and to save space. They read well on my 10 inch tablet.

    Atom, thank you!

    I'm with you there, reading comics on a screen just doesn't feel right to me.

    BUT. . .

    Digital is the way to go in order to read comics WAY out of my price range. That's definitely the best use for digital comics I've found. I'm not going to be able to afford the first appearance of Wolverine or some of the WWII Superman stories (for example), but if I just want to read the comics without having to shell out mighty bucks for them, I can do it online for cheap.

  • I will second that congrats on the top 75!
    I definitely see the practicality of digital comics. Good call (atom) on getting to read books that are beyond reach due to pricing. Also a good alternative to having to buy collected works, omnibus, etc to get a particular story.
    Ok, so I passed by the lcs today and had the What if in my hands. I put it back for now, and opted for the other what if (peter parker became the punisher). The what if's weren't really on my radar before reading your blog, so big thanks on that.

  • Congratulations on the very well deserved top 75 Award. Should be Top Ten but what do they know?
    I loved your comic on millions of readers. Reminded my of a comment by Stan Lee, writing in "Not Brand Ecch" back in the day, something about millions of admirers (I think it was a version of Daredevil thinking), and then the editors footnote below
