    "The popular comics tracking site Z-Cult FM has received legal letters demanding the immediate cessation of all illegal activities on the site from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics, according to a report at TorrentFreak, a blog that tracks activities related to BitTorrent file sharing."

    If you want to read comics for free you're gonna have to loiter at 7-11 like God intended.

    or go hang out in the shops until the long haired D&D guy behind the counter threatens you with his magic arrows.

    Yeah, but Z-Cult was the single most comprehensive and dependable and seeded if you're looking for comics specifically.

    Which...I just so happen to know because...I totally, uh, heard that...somewhere.

    I was just telling my LCBS owner that I felt that with the online site, and Marvel dropping GIT's contract, that they were setting themselves up to bring lawsuits against illegal downloading.

    They sure did.

    It also appears that the note from SLG was false.

    Well, they're a much smaller publisher for whom exposure is much harder to come by. I imagine Z-Cult is actually netting them a little bit more business from people with guilty consciences who get a taste of their comics via torrents and then go out and buy some more.

    I'm planning on finishing up my run of Fables trades when I get home. :)

    Pff, I stay current on Fables. The last issue was good stuff.

    Fables is pretty much the only book I've ever read in trade form.

    By choice, or are you catching up to eventually switch to issues?

    By choice. I hate not having full runs in my collection. I'm anal that way. So, if I have the first 50 issues in trade form and single issues for the rest of the run, I'd freak out. It's gotta be one way or the other for me.

    That's weird. But, as long as you're reading Fables somehow, it's acceptable.

    Have you read any Jack of Fables?

    No, not yet. I'm assuming it's every bit as enjoyable as Fables, though.

    It's definitely enjoyable. It's more of a comedy book than Fables, but Sturges and Willingham are hilarious together, so it works. It's a rare book that can even make me laugh with its "Next issue..." promos.

    Good to know. The Bolland covers sure look nice.
