In collection - Yes
Comments - The standard GITCORP collections contain over 500 issues each. That works out at less than $ 0.10 per issue. This is the only way that these collections are affordable to the average consumer. 10c is about the right price point for collectd e-pubs in my opinion.
These items are in my personal reading collection. Reading them on a reasonable sized PC monitor is a cinematic experience! The colours are vivid and sharp, especially in those comics produced in the last 10 years.
To put the outstanding value of these collections into a physical perspective, each of these images shows around about 500 comics, or what is contained in just one of the boxes above.
They sure take up a lot of storage space! In terms of cost, portability and storage concerns, digital media is becoming the way to go. That same 500 comics fits neatly on one DVD.
The Iron Man collection shows excellent packaging with an embossed cover and a good choice of contrasting Iron Man images - 2006 Iron Man on the cover and the original Iron Man as seen in "Tales of Wonder" 1963 on the DVD case.
The standard GITCORP collections contain over 500 issues each. That works out at less than $ 0.10 per issue. This is the only way that these collections are affordable to the average consumer. 10c is about the right price point. (That is about 7c in US Dollars).
GITCORP also publish shorter collections such as these.
Comparative costs of home entertainment
I ran a quick comparison, showing what PC flight sims cost per hour in relation to other popular forms of entertainment.
It is interesting to note the both the most expensive and the cheapest items are comic books. The content is the same, the media has changed from print to digital. Flight Sims turn out to be nearly the cheapest form of home entertainment per hour!
As of late 2007 Marvel chose to cancel the arrangement with GITCORP to produce these collections. The Complete Thor and the Complete Daredevil were almost ready to ship.
