Oh Woe is me? What will me and my poor iPad do? I'm so sorry DC!
Because it is not like I can download all those comics for free, oh wait yes I can, and now I guess I will and maybe I will download every comic DC produces while I am at it! Nice move Dc, you F**ktards.
Lapsed comic fan (20,000+ singles in the basement!) that's hugely enthused for the digital DC Comics relaunch.

Yeah exactly besides most of these are collect single issues which could be found on comixology, and even the original graphic novels like superman earth one was released like so long ago. Everyone probably have gotten the print edition
My concern is how well the comics will come across on a screen as small as the one on the Kindle Fire. I really want a tablet to read comics on and have been leaning towards an iPad since it seems to be the only decent tablet out there. The price of the Kindle Fire is tempting, but at the end of the day, I think I'd rather shell out the extra cash for a few more inches of screen as I think it will be better for reading comics.
As for the news of the deal, I hope they make it available to all Kindle readers, including the ones for iPad and iPhone. I would actually consider reading Superman: Earth 1 for $9.99.
This is a really poor move if DC wants to expand their market, not just because the iPad has over 25 million owners, but also because I would much rather read a comic on a larger screen android tablet as well. I already wish my iPad was just a little bigger, so I didn't have to zoom from time to time to read really small text.
BAD TOUCHSCREEN TYPER
I hope, at the very least, this exclusive is treated like other "digital" exclusives, in that they are only for a limited time. DC would be dumb to not have a book like Watchmen eventually show up on what is the #1 digital comics app and site.
If you're talking about a "shaky-cam" recording of a movie at the theater, yeah, you'd be correct. However, the Watchmen book has been available for a very long time, and I'm sure there are numerous high-quality scans out there somewhere. An advantage, if it were on the comixology app, would be the zoomed-in guided view, but I have no idea if the Kindle Fire will have such a feature.Originally Posted by sethysquare
