    I live in Canada and all the comic book stores are American. With the difference in the dollar I can't afford it. But thank you for the suggestion, I used to do that when the dollar difference wasn't so much. If worse comes to worse I guess I will just have to buy digital copies online. But I really love having the actual comic.

    Too bad you can't open your own comic book shop.

    Yeah, that was my thought from the announcement. It's their choice whether to offer the codes or not, but it's hypocritical garbage to claim that it's going to be good for either customers or retailers. Every possible reaction hurts retail sales.

    Just severely cut the comics I buy at my LCS due to this new policy. I have a physical disability and rely on the digital copy but enjoyed still having physical copies and supporting my lcs. It looks like I'll be buying online and less than I was because I'm not getting the same value I used to get

    I'm mostly upset that all the old codes i had and was "just in case" saving for trade are apparently expired.
