    I have not gotten a subscription yet for the Marvel Digital (honeslty probably won’t) but I think it is a great way to get the books out there. Any improvements to the reader would help that.

    You know, looking at these images, it makes me wonder if artist or writers are starting to plan their panel layout for an electric reader like this, the Ipod or the PSP? I know on older books that would not be possible, but still…

    Yeah that’s great… Until Marvel puts them on the iPod, I still don’t care.

    Well, yeah, I like it, I like the idea, but I can’t seem to load anything without hitting an error past page 1. I mean, maybe that’s just me and my slow indian internet, or maybe it’s something I need to update, but if it is, I would like to be told what exactly it is i need to update.

    I had that all yesterday, I think it was a bug when they implimented the new reader, it’s fine now.

    I do hate their update system though, missing the last issue of so many arcs to try and force me to get trades and all.

    I signed up for this service back when in debuted, and then I signed up for another year and I have no idea why. Reading comics on the screen just always seemed awkward to me. v3 does seem to be an improvement but I just always feel like there’s some part of the page being obscured by controls or poor zooming.

    Why would Marvel present a Digitized series, like X-Men Kingbreaker 1-4, with key issues missing that are only available thru their Print Bookstore? The only reason I can come up with is that their Digitized Service is just ADVERTISEMENT FOR THEIR PRINTED BOOKS THAT THE READERS ARE SUCKERED into paying for. If I’m wrong, whom do they imagine their target audience to be? Who, out there, is pleased by a fragmented, incoherent story? If they simply “haven’t gotten to digitizing them yet”, why not hold off on its presentation until the entire run is in? This isn’t a meandering, cross-over series. Their covers say 1-4 of 4.
