Can you get monthly comics on a Nook? Or is it just collections/tpbs?

It's just collections, as far as I know. I don't think the Comixology app (or its branded Marvel doppelganger) is available on the Nook, and that's what you need to do single issues.

Hmmmm. So that would be like an apple or android tablet or something?

Yeah, more or less. The Nook is actually Android-based; they just don't offer those applications.

Kindle Fire has Comixology, although I hear there's some weirdness about having to buy certain things (DC collections, mostly) on the website instead of directly through the app itself. iPad has Comixology, plus all the branded apps (Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, etc). I'm sure most straight Android tablets have it, but I'm unfamiliar with most of them.

EDIT: Also, most Android and Apple phones should be able to run those apps, if you don't want to go the tablet route.

Cool. Trying to figure out how quickly that would pay for itself in weekly comics alone.
