imageFor years I had my weekly Wednesday pilgrimage to the local comic book store to pick up the latest issues of the comic books I liked. I’m not a collector. I just like reading comic books.

That time, however, is over.

Instead, I use the ComiXology iPad app. And not only is the reading experience superior (due to the way they turn the comics into a quasi-motion comic) but it’s so much easier to go back and re-read a series.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to go back and re-read something only to find I am missing an issue here or there because, when you have thousands of them, they tend to get mixed up.

In the past month, I’ve already spent more with comiXology than I have spent at the local comic book store in the past 2 years. It’s just so convenient and frankly, addicting to just be able to find what you want, click, and start reading.

I have been fine with the Comic plasmoid that comes with the KDE Plasma Desktop ever since KDE4 was released. No need for anything else, really. And I'd gather that there should be something similar for Windows, too.

I think the main draw is on the iPad, though.  I've purchased a few issues on my iphone and its simply not all that enjoyable a way to read.  As long as I don't get an iPad, I don't see myself shifting away from picking up some new hard cover collections, etc.  That and I tend to buy collections instead of single issues.  If I was just picking up individual issues (and had an iPad) this would be the way to go.  Glad you are loving it anyway!
