Today in The Cube:
Marvel, through an exclusive with Comics Alliance has announced that, starting in January, they will include a code for a free digital copy in each issue if their ULTIMATES line.
*This ends the NEWS portion of this post.*
I'm sorry - digital comics may be the eave of the future, but I'm not for it
Call me a Luddite if you care to, but I've used the Marvel app on my phone to read Comics and, quite frankly, I did not enjoy the experience. It's too automatic and separating from the comic itself and, frankly, feels a little claustrophobic.
Of course, local comic shop (LCS) owners are concerned, and with good reason - digital comics will mean, in the end, the death of the LCS if they truly take off in popularity; if you can just download a comic, why go to the shop?
Marcel's made a number of missteps in the last few years - we'll see if this is the straw that breaks the camel's back.
