Early Christmas Presents and the Marvel Online Archive
What did you ask for christmas? I asked for and thankfully already received (thanks, Mom) a year long subscription to Marvel's digital comics unlimited. Although many parts are a little spotty, the current collection online is rather extensive spanning from the beginning of Marvel to recent issues. Although the online reader requires flash, so sadly it isn't on the ipad yet, but the reader is well designed and flows well. To break it in, I have been reading through the original Lee and Kirby issues of the X-Men. For just $60 ($47 if you use this code I found) year long access is a pretty good deal and is easily the cheapest way to get your fill of old school Marvel.
