MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
I think it could be interesting to have a discussion about comic book subscriptions. I can see several facets:
The different ways you can get a subscriptions – pull lists, direct subscriptions, dcbs and other online services.
The ways the various publishers offer subscriptions.
The effect on comic shops.
How popular are they?
How timely are they – I sometimes get issues 3-4 weeks after they have been officially released from Marvel but usually 1-2 weeks after release. DC (although I think DC subscriptions are a third party) is always about 4 weeks after release.
