Remember that we abridge the comics we review, and the show is by no means a substitute for reading it yourself. If any comics we review pique your interest, there are MANY places to pick these up! We highly recommend you check out your local comic book shop first, as that is the BEST experience for reading comic books. Otherwise there are many sources online to read and buy comic books in a digital format: Marvel Digital ComicsDark Horse Digital, IDW, DC ComicsImage and more on ComixologyDrive-Thru Comics, and Graphicly.
