I know we have some fanboys here, so I thought I'd post this:

https://www.humblebundle.com/books/grant-morrison-comics

Humble Bundle has a grouping of some of his stuff (18, Dinosaurs vs. Aliens, Avatarex) that didn't come from the big 2 publishers.
If you're not familiar with HB, it's a charity thing. You "donate" money (you choose how much) and you get digital comics / games in return. The more you give, the more you get. $15 unlocks the entirety of the group.

Sell me on this. I think the only independent / creator-owned GM stuff I've read is ... Fishboy? I forgot what it was called but there was a fish guy who kept saying "dafug?"

Full disclosure: Neither I, nor this site are affiliated with Humble Bundle. It's just a good deal.

You have read Seaguy by Morrison and Cameron Stewart.

I saw the Humble Bundle yesterday but digital comics just don't hold any appeal to me. That plus the fact I have more than enough to read at home. On the other hand, I have been terribly excited about the artwork for 18 Days. It looks gorgeous.

I flip-flop on the digital. The stuff I collect physical, I will always collect physical. I also will not go with an app or service that I can only view my stuff that way. I like that HB gives you the files and you have them. It's not locked into a subscription. They're yours.
If the big two would come up with a similar solution to buy old issues / full runs ... economically and in bulk, I would be all over it.

I'd be all over that as well, but it would get uploaded to a sharing site within minutes. DC and Marvel would see all their invested time and money dissolve into thin air as people would illegally download those files.

It's already happening. They may as well cash in on those of us who would pay. Rather than have us get the illegals.
