I don’t like the current comic release format. Part of me wants to say it is because I spend a lot of money on comics but I can’t really say it because I haven’t been to the store in a few weeks (because I am poor – but I am employable! – but enough self woes). Comics are an expensive habit to have, at times books can be unrewarding (how many scenes of desolation without meaning were in Age of Ultron?). You pay $4 and if you get something to read for maybe 10 minutes, you got something good. And then it goes into the box till you read it again (or donate it to the children’s hospital- that’s what I do).
I live in the Midwest and a movies here don’t cost an arm and a leg. For $10 I can see a two hour long movie. That is equal to 2.5 big name comics I could buy or 3.3 normal comics. At most on the maybe 20 minute per comic I am just breaking even but honestly some of those comics might take 5 minutes to read just to fill time waiting for the plot.
So what if for those $10 you could get something more out of the comic release format?
