    Free Comics!: Will Eisner's Complete Run of PS Magazine

  • Great Question! Answer to your question: Yes, the actual comic book will show the number. You can usually find it within the first few pages of the comic book, and sometimes on the cover for short limited run storyarcs. A good place to find out which book starts the arc in the publishers website, that's what I do. For example Marvel: "INCREDIBLE HERCULES # 132 The Story: Beginning a storyarc so earth-shattering, so momentous, so, well, incredible, we just had to give it to you TWICE A MONTH! (Well, for the three months, anyway)." I know that this is going to be the first issue to pickup and I'll see a new issue on the racks every two weeks for the next three months. Most comic book publishers provide this information on their websites, but if not, you can always ask your local comic shop. Also, if you fall behind in a series, or run, you can usually catch up by finding a digital copy of the comic online in .cbr or .cbz format. The other thing you can do is wait for the trade paperback to be released if it's a popular run, but sometimes it doesn't happen for quite sometime, so wait at your own risk. Thanks for the comment. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

  • No problem, I'm glad I could help out. If you find another way to get your friends interested in comics, feel free to post it. I remember going through blogs just like this one, looking for suggestions in the comment section. And your methods may work better than my own for other people.

  • I like the "simpler" webcomics as well. They seem to have almost an indie film quality to them because their so creative with whatever they have at their disposal. But I think they demonstrate the fact that you don't have to be an artist to be comic creator, you just need be creative and tell a good story. Which is one of the reasons why I liked "Circle Versus Square", cause its got these two characters going up against each other, simply because they're different shapes. What makes it great is that it's not much different from our own squirmishes. Have either of you checked out Shiga's FLEEP? about the man trapped in a phone encased in concrete.

  • I haven't seen Circle Versus Square before, so I went to their site. Hilarious. Great Link. Minimalist shapely humor at its best.

  • Awesome post. I think the decline of the newspaper has brought an influx of great art to the web and mobile platform. And if the newspaper becomes digital, then it won't be long before cartoonist are drawing for their local newspaper so their strips can be read on the latest Kindle or Sony Reader, or whatever.
