I once had someone comment how it was “really cool” that I “support comic book stores” because I actually go out and purchases hard copies of comic books. In an age of tablets, smartphones and all things digital it would certainly be easier to simply buy my comics digitally, and create less clutter, but to me, there is just something magical about going into the shop every week, picking up the newest releases, being able to hold each issue in your hands, and lovingly flip through the pages, ads and all.
There are times however, that I can’t make it into the shop, and am usually forced to either order the issues offline, tfaw.com is a wonderful resource by the way, hunt then down at my comic book shop in the following weeks, or appeal to two of my favorite people to search their local shops for me.
Well now, Image has come up with an awesome way for you to receive your fave Image title right at your door! Click below for more info.
Now with Image Direct you can sign up for 12 issue subscriptions of your favorite Image titles. Issues will be delivered at the end of the month, and the more titles you sign up for the more you save.
This is a pretty cool service. They offer plenty of titles including tried and true favorites The Walking Dead and Saga, as well as newer titles like Bitch Planet and Wayward so there’s a little something for everyone.
You can check out the official page here for more details and a list of titles offered.
The only drawback I can see is that the titles won’t ship til the end of the month so you’ll have to wait a bit, but if you can get past that it’s a pretty cool deal.
So what do you think? Is this something you’d be interested in? Hit up the comments and let us know.
