Alright Marvel Unlimited subscribers – time to hash one out: I’m noticing more and more series missing multiple issues in the middle of a run.
Love or hate, shows like Smallville and The Walking Dead have opened the door for live-action comic book adaptations on television.

This may seem over-dramatic, but Marvel Now! has a serious, festering, irredeemable dud on their hands with the first two issues of Thanos Rising.
I won’t sit here and pretend I always get tweets from @Audi, but when I do I drink Dos Equis. Wait… wrong marketing campaign.
What I meant to say was when Audi tweets me a weirdly personal link with little to no description, I darn well click through.
Glad I did here, as it led me to their Iron Man 3 promotion, Steer the Story, a surprisingly interesting development in crowd-sourced digital comics. (more…)
When someone talks about digital comics now, they are very likely talking about digital comics as read through one specific reader: Comixology.
While it’s through Comixology that you’ll find the latest and greatest from Image, Marvel, and DC, there are plenty of instances where the app just won’t have what you’re looking for.
This is how I found Kobo. (more…)
