    I've seen Alliance and Defiance in the iTunes store for a while.

    They say available on the internet, but it's really only available via iTunes, and then only if you have an iPhone or Touch. Lock-in is a pretty lame way to go about releasing things via the internet.

    Online publishing just always leads to disappointment for me.

    I bought these for my iphone and I loved it. The artwork looks crisp and clear on the iphone screen, and I love the fact I can carry them all around in one device and read them when ever I like. I hope al the new up coming comics are released this way as well.

    Again IDW has disappointed me. Seeing as I don't own an IPhone or an ITouch I don't have access to these...I'm a sad little panda.
