Odd for DC that Comixology's 'Word Finest' sale ends on a Sunday; I wonder if there's a Buy One Get One code coming in or something else for that Monday.

Too bad since Keatinge's Shutter is one of my favorite titles.

Wow. I couldn't disagree more. While the actual "wrestling" isn't the focus, it was pretty clear to me that Keatinge knows his stuff and the whole thing felt pretty steeped in the wrestling business.

As for the art, while Barber's style is certainly simple, it's very distinct and does an excellent job most of making all of the characters easily distinguishable. Even after only 1 issue, the cast is fairly large and being able to immediately recognize each and every character on sight is a big deal. I actually quite liked the art and to say that it's "really really really bad" completely ignores it's objective qualities. You might not "like" it, and that's totally your prerogative, but if you think Barber's art is bad, then you haven't seen bad art.

Thanks! Looks like you have to add the free selections to your purchase. Maybe that was obvious but I thought they might be just free.

Yeah I was a wee bit harsh on the art. I should have just said it's really basic instead of really bad.

I am glad you are enjoying it. I hope it does well. Just never better than Shutter.

I noticed the Incredible Changebots are for sale in the IDW Kids sale,which is pretty hilarious given the amount of death, swearing and robot sex.

Decided to buy a year of Marvel Unlimited. Haven't read comics in 20 years, any suggestions for good runs to catch up some?

The cosmic event Annihilation is excellent [but its sequel, Annihilation Conquest, is less so]. Rick Remender's run on Captain America [at least starting with 'Castaway in Dimension Z'] is stellar.

I wish Marvel Unlimited would have the Max and Icon books, those are my favorites. But since they are creator owned, I guess they don't want to have to pony up any royalties and add them.

Also i enjoyed Avengers Vs Xmen more than I expected. I thought it would be gimmicky and disposable but it had a lot of cool references to past mythos and seems tk really set the stage for the modern Xbooks; although to get the most of it you kight need to be familiar with Schism era Xmen.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc

I went to read a Humble Bundle comic I had downloaded to my iPad and my iBooks was empty. That's where I had kept them all. Has this happened to anyone else?

I know I can redownload, but it's kind of a pain, plus iBooks remembers what page I'm on.
