Wish you could take your collection of marvel comics anywhere without ripping or scratching them? Well now you can! Marvel has now made available digital comics for download after a small subscription price on your PSP, PC or even on your iPhone.
I really wouldn't pay around $60 for comics, but only because I don't read em. Making them available on the PSP and iPhone should bring in a few new readers.
Well it's $60 a year for basically an unlimited amount of comics. Comic books were like $10-$15 EACH, so for any comic book fan this service is pretty awesome.
That's a pretty cool feature, especially for comic fans.
they should lower it to 40 or something but it's a cool feature i wanted to get but that to much
I can understand buying for the PSP or iphone but who in their right mind wants to buy comics for PC??? [By the way Comics[Mangas] on the PSP/iphone have been around for awhile now].
Serious comic readers can blow $30-$60 every Wed! Don't string that cheap gamer mentality over into something that you all have no clue about ha. You're looking at spending hundreds a year down to $60 a year (Granted, not every title will be available through this service so you'll still be buying some of your certain issues).
will cost you 2.99 to 3.99. So this is a great deal. I still will spend my $20 every month. But this is good to get non-reader's interested in comics and current readers interested in other titles. To think I remember when they were low-res and cost 50 cents at the drugstore.
Does anyone actually read comic these days? This is fail. Do U read comics or know someone that does? Agree if yes, Disagree if no. EDIT: WTF this hit 50 deg!
I don't know a single person that reads comics...
Well guess there is if the article hit 90 degrees. I didn't expect over 20.
Comics? NO Manga? yes but mostly stuff from Japan that aren't in the states yet though...so useless for my psp
@ Feral gamer What is wrong with manga? Just b/c it doesn't appeal to all Western audiences (or individuals like yourself), doesn't mean it doesn't deserve any support whatsoever. There is always a vocal community out there that supports things outside of North America. It's called "taste". Judging from your comment history, it seems you have quite the xenophobic/anti-eastern tone. Racist people like you don't deserve to speak at all. @ Sashimi I'm sure Sony will catch on soon (they are probably negotiating), b/c manga is huge in Europe (I think) and Japan, (for sure) so it is natural they might bring it to North America too.
Who would want to look at comics on a small screen? I read some graphic novels and couldn't imagine the pictures being any smaller.
They have a zoom in feature and auto-play where it automatically pans what you're supposed to read. So it's not like you're squinting your eyes the entire time or something.
it reminds me of the cutscenes from inFamous. Very interesting way of reading comics.
I'd rather see the images closer to actual size. They look better and show more detail you might not get in a digital version. I don't want to scroll around a page to view an entire scene. So it's just Marvel comics? I don't like Marvel. I prefer Vertigo stuff like Sandman, The Preacher, gritty stuff, not spandex wearing characters. The Dark Tower is pretty good, though. Plus Marvel sold out to Disney
It's very cheap, how can you say it's expensive?!
expensive because I want to get into reading comics and if don't like it lost 60 bucks
Then take your lazy ass to a store and buy an issue for a few dollars, genius...
spend $10 for the first month to try it out. The cost of 2-3 comics. You can keep that plan or save by paying for an annual subscription.
You can get an entire catalog of comics for free if you know where to look. Reading them on your mobile device is kinda crappy but perfect for a laptop.
"Reading them on your mobile device is kinda crappy but perfect for a laptop. " That's the whole point of this service, so people don't have to lug around their laptops everywhere they go or even carry ALL the physical comics themselves. iPhone users will benefit from this most because since it's a phone they'll have with them all the times anyway. And some people work in a clean room like I do, so bringing my laptop inside just to read a few comics is a no no.
There's no way it's comfortable reading comics on an Iphone or PSP.
