KC Reflects on Our Move and Digital Comics

The conversation continues. In his latest Westfield column, KC looks back at our move, shares a nightmare, and ponders switching to digital comics. Do you remember the GIT DVD-ROMs? Those batches of Marvel (and other) comics were such a better deal than the current “buy one at a time for cover price” model of digital comics — no wonder publishers quit offering them.

I also tried to get KC to write about an even earlier way to buy comic images, but he didn’t remember the Golden Age DC runs they sold on microfiche. I guess that product made more sense when libraries still had microfiche readers.

    Oh, wow, blast from the past. I have “Sensation Comics” on fiche, somewhere.

    Now if anyone still had a fiche player…

  2. Jim Perreault Says:

    I bought several of the GIT collections and love them. It is a shame they are not being made.

    I do have a bunch of Golden Age comics on fiche as well. The company that did them is still around, but they no longer offer DC or Marvel comics because of copyright issues. I think they still have Archies though.

    The GIT DVD’s were great. This is what I want, Marvel. Complete comics, with ads, bullpen bulletins, and letter columns intact, for around cover price each. Scans do just fine. I don’t care if they are recolored or are on acid-free glossy paper.

    I have the Amazing Spider-Man one, hmm really looking at that FF one on Amazon.(would love the Captain America ad X-Men ones)

    I keep seeing the Archie ones at the Half Price bookstore chains for $3.
