Marvel dotcomics!

I know that I'm about 2 years late to this phenomenon but I just wanted to make sure everybody here knows about this.

You can get free selected comics at www.marvel.com . They are presented in flash and are really well done. I think they through a lot of work to recreate what it is actually like reading a comic (to bad I can't haul my monitor to the toilet though ). I never checked it out before because I thought it wouldn't work and I wouldn't be able to get into the story.

However, free comics is better than no comics. Due to economic, space, and maturity reasons (got married), I no longer collect the 20 bucks per week worth of books I used to. This is a great way for me to at least keep up with my favorite characters.

They release two new dotcomics a week!

I wish DC did this, I miss Detective Comics.

I like this as well. Better than paying $3-$5 an issue. If Marvel started some kind of online service where all their comics could be read online for a reasonable monthly fee I would be interested. I just want to read them, not collect them.

Thats a great idea! I would gladly pay 10 bucks a month for access to their entire monthly catalog (in a higher rez version of course).

It'd be cool if they did some 'landmark' back issues too.
