I was wondering if anyone else has stumbled upon this. It is a DVD-ROM that has the last 20 years worth of the Amazing Spiderman comics on it, in pdf format. It also has every annual released from 1986-2006. I picked up at futureshop (similar to Best-Buy) for $4.99. I tried to search for it on Amazon, This was the best I could find. That is a much higher price, but it has a lot more on it.
I bring this up only because I think it is a good way for people (such as myself) to get into/back into comics.
