Digital comic books. Traditional paper comics. Or, maybe both? We discuss and debate the pros and cons of going all digital against buying from a local comic store. Would someone use a single service, like Comixology, to purchase books, go to individual sites like Marvel.com, Titan-comics.com, DCComics.com, etc., or visit their local comic shop? Do you lose that one-on-one relationship when buying digital only? We also talk about the ending of Astonishing X-Men #1. Hosted by Clarence Brown and Kyle Jones.
