Yeah, i know now, but it wasn't know at the time of that solicitation.

Did you read Uncanny X-Force #1 (2013)? I was pretty disappointed but i hope it picks up. Psylocke's character seem really off compared to where it last was during Remender's run.

I can't wait for the re-re-launch of Uncanny X-Men next week. Super psyched for that.

I'm not thrilled with either of the X-Forces so far. Hope comes across as a whiney brat in Cable & X-Force, and yea, Psychlocke seems off and the Fantomexing sexing each other is slightly weird, too.

I'm kind of disliking how they're changing/doing events with the comics up to match the movies (like the appearance of Nick Fury's son called Nick Fury who looks like the movie/ultimate version of the character).

Question: Are graphic novels and comics worth getting on the tablet or is it something that's better to have a hard copy of? I'm thinking Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and some X-Men stuff (not sure what, was going to browse through the thread).

I read all my comics on a tablet and just leave the hard copies unopened. I'm sure its a preference thing though, but with the lighting and colors standing out, comics look wonderful on a tablet. Not to mention the advantage of having many comics/GN on a portable device.

Not a bad way of going about things on your end. I noticed the comics are in .cbz format or something like that so I'm guessing I'd have to find a reader for them.

If its an Android tablet you can simply download "Perfect Viewer" and that will read CBR, CBZ, and even PDFs.

I also find reading digitally a good way to save money. I download them online (pirated) and if i like it, i buy it. I see nothing wrong with that.

I've recently completed collecting all of Rememder's Ucanny X-Force, Yost's X-Force, and the Age of Apocalypse event. If it wasn't for pirating i wouldn't have gotten back into comics, let alone began buying them.

Yeah I definitely plan on buying the ones that I get into. Do you have any recommendations for comics that can really pop out on the Kindle's HD display? The only comics I know are the ones that are shown in the movies so the story doesn't matter to me, I'm open to anything.

I mainly read Marvel and most of today's comics are in pretty nice quality. I currently read:

All-New X-Men
Cable & X-Force
Saga (this looks wonderful on tablet)

A lot of the Marvel Now! comics come with digital download codes so you can download them to your iPhone or android using the Marvel app as well.
