I know there's probably not much that can be said on this topic, but I'm wondering how many of fellow readers here used to get their comics in the mail like I did. When I was a kid, there wasn't any comic shop I could get to easily and the convenience stores rarely had spinner racks. So, if I had one comic that I really wanted, I usually had to send away for a subscription. This was the '90s, so my various subscriptions went as follows: First, following just after the first two Batman movies I had a subscription to Batman right around the time of "Knightfall". Then, when I became a big X-Men fan because of the Fox cartoon, I subscribed to Uncanny X-Men with that little subscription card they put on the back of the Toy Biz X-Men action figures. This was in '94 around the time of "Phalanx Covenant". That somehow evolved into a subscription to Spider-Man Adventures which was based on the Fox cartoon and which later changed into Marvel Adventures which was an anthology of kind of cartoon-inspired Marvel tales. Then, after a break, I came back to comics and got a subscription to Young Justice that lasted for most of its existence.
You know, I don't know if they even still have subscriptions for comics, but it was always a really cool feeling when you got that comic book you were waiting for in the mail.
