Comixology Now Offers DRM Free Downloads

But does it matter?

First and foremost good on Comixology and Amazon for this move. This will likely bring in a whole slew of readers who hate DRM and who would prefer to download and manage their comics themselves. And just five years ago I would have thought this was the best thing in the world. But at this point, I no longer want to have to store, organize and manually transfer comics to and from devices. But does it matter?

A nice small haul this week with just four issues. It may not be the biggest, but it's a solid collection of issues that all have me looking forward to reading them. The only problem is deciding what to read first. Sometimes I just look at them over before reading. Partially to decide what to read first and partially to make the experience last longer. I think this will be one of those weeks...

Best Comic of the Week February 27th - Batman Incorporated #8

This was a great issue. Grant Morrison has truly done an excellent job over the last seven years with Batman, Batman & Robin and Batman Incorporated. Damien Wayne was introduced by Grant in the start of his run and went on to become one of the best characters in the series...

It was a good week in comics, took me a while to finish all of them. But after finishing them and letting the dust settle Saga rose to the top as the clear winner of the week. A planet gave birth to huge creature and a character looks to have died at the end. How could it not win...

This week has really been an embarrassment of riches. I picked up 8 books today and it's really hard to pick what to read first, there's so much great stuff. I'm not gonna do a big write up about each issue. Too many books to write about and too many I just want to read. So here they are...

Best Comic of the Week February 13th - Batman #17

This was kinda a given wasn't it.

If not for the fact that it's my favorite super hero comic it's also one of the best super hero series currently in production and one of few good DC comics still running strong from it's New 52 introduction. Scott Snyder definitely knows how to write.

Batman #17 is the conclusion to the excellent Death of the Family story arc. While I have heard a few complaints that issue 17 was a letdown, I don't really agree with them...

Best Comic of the Week February 6th - Snapshot #1

This was a hard week. None of the books were truly great, but none of them were bad either.

They were all good and I wen't back and forth a bit before deciding on Snapshot. The decision was based solely on the fact that I'm most excited for the next issue, than any of the other books. There's a couple unanswered questions and a great cliffhanger ending, it's just something the other books didn't have.

For a while I was considering Amazing Spider-Man #3. I've been ho hum about the series, but this weeks issue was easily the best. I also strongly considered Fearless Defenders, another good first issue...

Best Comic of the Week January 30th - Batman and Robin Annual #1

by David Loft posted February 4th 2013

File Under Comics

This comic surprised me. I've always enjoyed the artwork of this series as well as the dynamics between batman and robin, father and son. But the series far too often plays second fiddle to the excellent Scott Snyder's Batman. About half of the issues in the series so far has been used as mere filler for big story arch's such as Night of Owls and Death of the Family.

When engulfed by these side stories Batman and Robin often just becomes Robin and looses what makes the series great.

Annual #1 thankfully doesn't do this and to no surprise is the best Batman and Robin in quite some time. It's also a nicely contained issue not requiring you to read any other issues to enjoy...
