While I have moved to the digital format for all newly issued comic books (and love it – no turning back for this guy!) I still intend on filling in some issues in my “old” print collection for series I am trying to complete (meaning I want to own all issues in the series.) Though it’s only been a few months since I stopped buying print comics, it feels like a lifetime ago. Finding this little stash of issues I needed, on-line, getting them in the mail, opening the box, and perusing through them, brought back the rush of finding, buying, owning and reading print comics.
It doesn’t make me regret going digital, but it does remind me that reading digitally is not the same experience. I don’t get the same visceral reaction as holding them, smelling them, flipping through the pages. So I need to spend more time reading the classic comics I own.
Also, were comic books always this suggestive?
No wonder I’m gay! *smirk*
