Physical, although the odd comic scan doesn't bother me too much.

If the text is available in digital I'll get it there from now on. Cheaper and unless the internet crashes and burns I can download it and read it anywhere.

That's why I like what marvel comics has been doing. Most of their comics now if you buy a physical copy it comes with a code that's good for a little over a year that gets you a digital copy as well


Do you mean the code to recieve the digital copy expires in a little over a year, or you only get the digital comic for a little over a year?

The codes expire

So if you buy a comic that came out February 2014 it would expire sometime in March 2015

Once you enter the code you keep the digital comic as long as you have an account with the Marvel comics app, which is completely free

I prefer the feel of holding a physical book, trying to read to long on my iPad hurts my eyes.

Digital (i.e. iBooks) all the way. The only physical books I have left are an almost complete rare and vintage set of the complete works of Wilkie Collins, which will never go anywhere. Even then, I have all of his works in my iBooks library.

I love having a physical book with me. They look good on my shelves, I love the feel of books in my hand, and I like that having a collections of books they make me seem smarter than I actually am.

I prefer physical books but I'm interested about Ebooks. both have their pros and cons most mentioned above. So I don't wanna sound like a broken record repeating them all, but there ain't anything better than right place and time with book and coffee.

If I just want to read a book the digital, but if I really like a book I'll go physical since marvel has the new AR thing that adds a bit of an incentive for physical.

Since the question is what do I prefer, I'll go digital. I love real books; they smell so good (odd phrasing, but my point stands), but it's too inconvenient these days and my Kindle is fantastic in its own right.

As for manga, I read a lot more online, but that's because it's the only way to get a translation for most things. I definitely prefer physical.


Whenever I get new comics or manga (physical haha, I dont start smelling my kindle) I give them a quick sniff as well. I prefer physical copies for comics and manga because I just love the feel of the pages and the smell of them... however you are right, digital is way more convenient, and you can take them and read them anywhere you want, on a plane, at a hotel, even to a beach if you want lol, and you dont have to worry about them getting damaged because well... its data XP

I prefer the physical. I love to turn the pages, even I had to bookmark it with a piece of paper, and the scent of the new / old books <3
I haven't read anything over the internet too often, unless there's manga / doujishis or fanfictions (which it might not count because it's fanmade).
