  1. Another good dudes. Welcome back Donor – even though it sounded like you were calling in through a tin can attached to a fishing line. 😉

    and yeah, Trillium loses a lot of its charm digitally. Do you think that books little “novelty / gimmick” might be an attempt to save PRINT from going the way of the dinosaurs? Much like how Panavision was introduced in the early cinemas as a response to television keeping people at home instead of paying money to see a movie in the theater. Just a thought.

  2. For Neal,

    Try the Library and also check craigslist to see if you can get stuff cheaper and/or free.

    • Used bookstores too

    • I’ve found plenty of good deals at Half Price Books or similar used bookstores. It’s surprising which single issues and TPBs you can find there.

    • I echo the library as a source of reading comics on a budget, so long as you’re willing to trade wait. Libraries don’t get recommended enough as a way to save money. I mean… it’s free! Can’t get cheaper than that. ArsNotoria, suggestion of Half Price Books is good too. I recently picked up the final volume of the Starman Omnibus there which I’ve resisted buying until now because of the price.

    • Yup. Libraries are great!

  3. To save money, I subscribe to Marvel Unlimited. If you’re willing to read Marvel digitally and wait 6 months for issues, then its an amazing deal. $60 for a years worth of issues plus almost every back issue you could want. I get Image in trades, usually from the library and I only get DC monthly. Once DC gets on board with a yearly subscription service like Marvel Unlimited, I’m sure I’ll jump on that too.

  4. Or subscriptions in general. If you don’t mind being a few days late, I think every Marvel title is $29.99 or under for a 12 month subscription.

  5. Thanks for the PotW, Josh. Bought 1 and 2 yesterday after listening and they were great fun. Added them to my shop pull list today.
