    Also, im quite happy to pay that price so i dont have to own a physical copy. I know that sounds kinda backwards - but its getting to the point where im just running out of room. It would still cost me more per issue to buy and import from Amazon but even if it didnt id be happy enough with this option. All my bookshelfs are full. 

    Also i dont want a subscription. I might want to buy an arc of something or just a few issues - i dont want to have to commit to a years worth of comics. Plus im sure that the postage to Australia again would bump u p the price considerably.

    Of course some people wouldnt like this option but some do. Im not a big fan of generalisations - i'm certainly no fool. Just because something doesnt work for you doesnt mean that applies to everyone.

    Havent fully read the thread yet but let me just say this is great for non US comic fans. Even though the exchange rate conversion works out to be around 3.20$ Aus for a 2.99US$ comic they cost around 8$-9$ locally due to shipping and whatever else. That is a LOT!

     

    Plus theres one comic store in Western Australia..heaven knows what the people who live in rural WA do but it still costs me around 10$ to make a 40 minute trip to the comic shop.. 

    DCBS and the like dont help that much, it helps a bit but to get the price down at all you have to settle with a monthly shipment that takes several weeks to get here and it ends up being around 4-5$ which is better but still..

    Even though they dont have the new stuff yet this is a good first step in this direction - Im really pleased with it and am totally happy to pay 2.5$. I'm sure its the same for people in other countries.

    Its not going to be 99c -look at Marvels other offerings. 2$ seems to be it. Which is great for me - 2.50$ Aus is a lot better than 8.50$ thats for sure..

    @dwarren- im pretty sure longbox is  doing a public beta now.

    just checked..yep.

    1.99 aint so bad for us International guys. In Australia comics cost around 7-8$ and a 2$ US price would equal around 2.50$ or so which is a massive price drop.

    Of course its not available for us non-US guys so...y'know..whatever. 

    September 11, 2009 8:33 am Havent watched Smallville the last few seasons either...cant seem to get enthused about it. I echo the above..is it worth watching?
