Having started to get a couple of print titles after the new 52 I find I just dont have the space for more stuff. Im in the process of converting all my music to digital. I have an iPad and downloads would be more convenient but I want to know that my purchases are permanent so I can re-download whenever and forever.
Are the DC, Marvel and Comixology apps linked? as in buy from DC and access via Comixology? Also how financially stable is it?
They are indeed linked. I bought from the DC app before realising i hadn't signed into my comixology account. I then signed in and it synched them and i can now view them on any other device with comixology.
The stability is the only bit that worries me too but i've taken the plunge.
Yep, as Fishy says, the DC and Comix ones are linked. The Marvel specific app isn't but you can get Marvel comics on Comixology (seems like the same offers are there too).
I wouldn't say that financial stability was an issue just now, with to being fairly new, no one really knows. I can see it taking off though, seems like it's a lot more convenient for a lot of people.
There's a thread about it here, some interesting pro and con points made:http://bullpenbulletinspodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=13557.0
I've never used the forum, just found it on a search but they seem like a knowledgeable bunch. The fact that you don't get to actually own the file initially put me off but I'm willing to look past it for cost and convenience. Any special or rare stuff that I want, I can still buy in print. Assuming I can get my hands on it, of course!
Chew and Elephant Men have already piqued my interest so I can see myself getting some of them. I think I've been overdoing the Super Hero stuff of late and fancied a bit of weird instead, they definitely fit the bill.Been trying to pump elephantmen and chew on here for ages
. I get both in collected editions. The 5 hardbacks released so far for elephantmen have been great reads and great books. Same with the 2 chew omnivores released. Space though for comics, novels etc is a huge issue. I have 8 long boxes full and 5 smaller boxes. The comics are mainly from the 90's before a 10 year break and now I collect graphic novels/collected editions.
Give locke and key a go if you liked chew and elephantmen.
Heh, thanks. I remember seeing recommendations for them on here before but I couldn't remember who from. I'll give Locke and Key a look too.
Have you read Severed? That was another freebie. Even though it was by The Almighty Snider, I wasn't 100% taken with it. Maybe just needs a second read.
