its surprising that they don't make it available im sure there are thousands of people that would happily buy them if they made them accessible to all countries. but i guess they might want to focus more on the newer comics than the older ones not sure.

I actually have all of the ultimate spiderman comics was able to get hold of them with a load of help. I suppose was only interested in the amazing series now because of the film coming out and everything.

Personally speaking, I only read what I can afford to (and I'm currently tracking the last ten years' worth of Spider-Man stuff in trades) but it wouldn't take very long to procure those issues digitally by other means. If you're against that for whatever moral reasons that's cool, and I can respect that, but put it this way: I'd lend you my copy of those issues (on disc or otherwise) if I had them. I'm fond of sharing. If you're not robbing any company of potential revenue because the product is no longer available it's easy to justify.
I am a Spider-Man reader and a Spider-Man buyer, but the option's always there.
I can see where you are coming from and at the moment I'm seeing if any friends/family etc. have any of the older ones, I know many long term spider-man fans so maybe I will be able to find some way to get my hands on some of them and will just have to keep trying
Thank you so much to eveyrone who have replied you have all been very helpful!
This is indispensable, made figuring out the differences between the JMS Ultimate Collections and the "Best Of" hardcovers a lot simpler. Working my way through the Brand New Day collections now. Handy, but not great for my bank account.
