Only Marvel Comics Presents #5, because it features a new Nightcrawler story by Chris Claremont.

There isn't really anything this week. I'll pick up Gideon Falls and Spiderman Life Story from last week. 

Big news is that my local shop announced that they are shutting down at the end of the month. My interest in comics has been waning lately,  so I'm likely not going to find a new shop. I've been with this guy since he opened 16 years ago, and um more than a little sad that he is closing.

On the bright side, I'll be saving a bunch of money every month, I guess. I've got a stack of unread comics to get thru, so it will likely be a week or so before I run dry. My Wednesday routine is about to get very different.

I don't know what I would do if my shop shut down. It's not just a place to buy comics, we often chat about a wide array of things and much laughter is shared. I'd probably just stop collecting individual issues and grab trades online or something. I am not one for digital comics, really.

No, if comics ever went all-digital, without print comics being available, I would just stop reading comics at that point. It'd be a good time to end this madness. heh

I know what you mean, Lou. I am friends with the owner of the comic shop I frequent.

I knew his father. He was the original owner of the store. We used to hang out together. His father was 80, and I was in my 20s at the time. heh

We used to play games on the computer and went to restaurants.

His father died of a brain aneurysm in 2005, and the son took over the store. So, I've known him and his wife since 2005. There's a long history there, going back to the friendship I also had with his father.

There is one other comic book store left in Flint. I would probably end up going there to buy comics. It wouldn't be the same though.

If both of them happened to close, then I'd probably just pick up some Trades online when something caught my eye, yeah.

Print is definitely the format that I prefer to read my comics, and I'm lucky enough to currently live in a place where there are two comic shops not on but quite close to the same street.

But I have gotten into using Comixology/Kindle lately because the frequent sales make it more tempting to take a chance on something I wouldn't have bothered trying in print. And it does save up space on the shelves and boxes, because I am running out of those.

But I'm still rather wary of the whole digital comics thing due to the simple fact that a physical comic will still be here in ten years, can the same be said for its digital equivalent?

Some really interesting posts guys, thanks for sharing!

I've moved from print to digital, for comics, for two reasons - 

1) Space!  Before I moved into my current place I had boxes and boxes, shelves and shelves of comics and trades.  I donated the bulk of the single issues rather than take them with me and then started the process of building trade collections for those discarded series.  I made a conscious decision to stop buying physical monthly comics cause I knew where it would end and I just don't have the space.  

2) Cost!  Comixology, my digital platform of choice, isn't much cheaper than buying the physical product but they run regular sales that do offer significant savings.  A good example here would be Ellis' Wild Storm, I've picked up each of the three trades released so far for a third of the retail price digitally.

Space is the main thing for me, I just can't go back to having comics all over the fucking gaff!  I'll still buy physical collections in certain cases - The Walking Dead, and Hellblazer for example but anything new will be digital only for now.

Definitely miss those small little chats at the till or being introduced to new titles by staff who know my tastes.  Can still remember the first comic I bought in Sub City as the guy who rang it up really liked the cover and that stuck with me, can't put a price on personable staff.  It was this issue of Hellblazer, for the record -

I'll be reading actual books physically till the day I die though.

Space is a major concern. With my amount of books and comics I own, I have no room for anything else here really. It's starting to look like I'm a hoarder.

Physical comics really do take up a huge amount of space.

I remember back around 2002, I had about seven long boxes full of comics. Now, I've completely run out of room for boxes, there have gotten to be so many, and have had to start stacking up piles of comics in any places I can find. Things have gotten more than a bit out-of-control.

Yeah space is a big issue. Mostly why I am going for trades lately

The space issue is a big one, but at least they're physical objects which will still exist if your cloud goes ping and vanishes for some weird legal reason. That always puts me off digital stuff.

I am planning a couple of weeks at my Dad's to sort my comics collection into

1) keep

2) don't keep

3) undecided

I expect the third category to by far outweigh the others. Then I will sell them anyway.

 

By the way, Ghost Tree #2

I feel like your collection probably comes with a capital C Ade, I'm seeing longboxes full of zines and self-published works that will never be available online.

I will make the list known here, and anyone who wants can have them for the cost of postage (or a trip to Bromsgrove if you prefer)

 

Perhaps I'll scan PDFs for you John.
