Interview: ComiXology Unlimited isn’t Netflix for comics – here’s why that’s OK

Interview: ComiXology Unlimited isn't Netflix for comics - here's why that's OK

This week, Amazon announced that its comic book platform, ComiXology, would begin offering an unlimited reading subscription for $ 6 per month. The service, called ComiXology Unlimited, offers thousands of comics free to read as long as you have an active subscription. It works much like Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription service.

ComiXology Unlimited immediately drew comparisons to video streaming service Netflix, as it allowed subscribers access to a vast catalog of media for a monthly price. However, that comparison proved to be inaccurate and frustrating for fans who expected to be able to binge-read all their favorite comic books.

On the plus side, these computers are so old that they can’t be hacked by zit-popping teenage hackerss. In fact, the devices used to control nukes are so old that most Snapchat users might not understand what they are. These massively destructive weapons are actually controlled by floppy disks. That’s right, the same ones that died off years ago. Is there really nothing more modern that people can use when they have their fingers on the button?
