Digital Comic Books! Plus, Are Comics In Trouble? (Marvel Unlimited, Comixology)

In this video, we take a look at the "digital vs physical" debate, but this time with a focus on comics. Along the way, you'll get my honest take on digital comic book services like Marvel Unlimited and Comixology as well as my assessment of their strengths and weaknesses. Then we dive headfirst into a look at the state of the comic book industry as a whole. Is it in good shape? Is it in trouble? OMG, ARE COMICS DYING?! What you don't know could harm you! On second thought, you'll be fine. We finish the video with a look at the cost of fandom, gate-keeping (*gasp*), and the changing face of collecting.

As always, this video is a little bit grumpy, a little bit funny (hopefully), but always totally honest.

I'd read the reviews and I knew the console had some issues, but I told myself that I had realistic expectations and I knew the strengths and weaknesses of the system, so I'd just appreciate it for what it was and overlook what it wasn't.
