Still wondering what it will be like to go from the "Cheers" comic store experience (the guy I've been buying from this month since my old store closed JUST learned my name today, too!) to a computer monitor.
Haven't found any comics podcasts with good hosts that don't clock in at over 90 minutes per episode. So using podcasts to replace that weekly store "shop talk" may be a lost cause.
Also wondering how I'll handle the delay in when I get my comics. At minimum I'll get them 1-5 weeks later than comic store customers (depending what week of the month they come out) since I'm getting all my comics bundled in two shipment per month, with the possibility of reducing that to one shipment at the end of each month to save more money.
It will definitely take me out of the cutting edge "live" comics experience. But the only downside I can think of there would be that I'll be behind the curve if I talk about comics on my blog or podcast, making my comments potentially out of date. Otherwise the delay probably won't bother me.
Anyone else doing mail order comic subscriptions? What do you think of the experience and what service do you use?
