    I have mixed feelings on this.

    While I am thrilled at the idea of new people coming to the medium, I really feel that you should get your comics from a local shop if possible. You get to talk about theories of where stories are going, share what you think about certain books, etc... etc.... Unless you are the type of person to buy your book then walk out, which is okay too I guess, but I think they are missing out.

    I think it's a great idea.

    Comics need to adapt if they're going to continue to be published.

    I don't want the books to completely go away, but it's about time (big) publishers began moving to the online market.

    I can only hope that DC will someday follow suit.

    This should free or insanely cheap service...at least for the first year or two. The younger audience could give a shit less about paying for comics on paper, so what makes marvel think they're gonna pay for online.

    I wish we could just download them for cheaper than normal price so we don't have to be connected to the internet to read them.

    Anyone else try to go to the website, there has been a really good response, so good infact that they have to revamp their servers cause of to much traffic. *edit* Draven beat me to it. lol
