I agree. These books are better read as a hard copy.

Definitely worth a shot at $1.99... I'd prefer hard copy but looks like the lowest price is $48 for new

Looked good on Kindle app on my 12.9" iPad, totally worth $1.99! Sadly it's not a scaleable PDF, so if you zoom in, it doesn't look great. It pretty much looks like it's just a scan of the book.
You can zoom in a lot better on comics that I've purchased from Amazon. I've also been able to zoom in on 8.5"x11" digital textbooks that I've gotten from Amazon too.


I downloaded the sample on Books (iBooks) on the same iPad and the quality is WAY better. Returning this to Amazon.


I see a few other big marvel books like this for $1.99, so I might check them out too...

Bought on Google, but it loads REALLY slow (check many reviews saying the same thing).

Bought it also on Kindle app and loads a lot faster.

Difference is the Google version can zoom in further and is clearer, so I'm guessing it's a much larger file.

Not sure why I bought it when you can type "Marvel 'character name or event' wiki" but it used digital credit so whatever.
