Comixology is a digital comic books seller. I am still not sure how to feel about digital comics. On one hand I love eBooks, and I use my Kindle all the time, but on the other I love to collect comics. I love the feel of glossy pages in my hand, and trying not to rip them as I turn the pages, but having my comics everywhere I go is very handy, and since the people at Comixology are either always having good deals or giving comics away, my digital library is growing.
So far I am using them to try out new series’, or titles that they are giving away for free/cheap, but I may give in and start buying most of my comics this way. It is just so convenient. I feel bad that my local comic book story doesn’t get these sales, but they are so far away, and my Surface is right next to me.
I love turning on my Surface and reading a comic book or two, and the thought of not having to worry about destroying my comic books in a bag while I travel around is great. I know Marvel has started to give away the digital comic book of most of its paper back ones that you buy, and that is great, but I wish that Comixology would do the same thing in reverse and ship me all the paper versions of the digital books that I own. That would be awesome (never going to happen).
They have made owning and buying digital comic books so easy and convenient that I can see them being my comic book future, but I am sure that I will still get the paper copies of the ones I like. If you see a good deal on a book that you want at Comixology, you should give it a try. They are good at what they do, and they might start to win you over too.
