It’s my baby, I’m slowly collecting all of the recent Flash comics. I did buy a few YJ and I quite liked them but my money’s on getting up to date with the latest Flash.

I really appreciate DC making this app because I’m from Australia and comics here cost more ($5-7 each!!) and it’s hard to find up-to-date titles in store. I only know of one shop in Sydney that is always up-to-date and that’s in the city, which means I cbf spending 50 mins on the train and then shelling out a ridiculous amount of money for a few comics.

And yes, sales of the individual monthly comics on paper or in digital form, as well as trade paperback collections or any other reprintings of the stories count towards royalties eventually paid the creative team.

But in Europe, “head to the closest other shop” means a two hour journey. Sadly, they only have 2-3 issues and they sell out quickly. I don’t come there often enough to think of a pull list. I mainly scour backissues whenever I’m there.

I’m relegated to buying Comixology. Which is handy, because I upload a lot of images to wikis ;) But because I’m a sucker for paper (and Young Justice), I also order the trade paperbacks (still waiting on number 2…). Do I get you double royalties that way?
