That was me in grad school. I was going nuts because I had no financial commitments. Then I got a girlfriend (who is now my wife) and started thinking about life after school. Comics went bye bye. That was 1999-2000. Bought a few in 2009 because of GI Joe re-emergence but stopped really quickly after starting.

That's the problem. I understand why paper comics cost more. Paper costs are through the roof. But digital? There is no paper. Not even for the production of most comics which is done increasingly using digital processes. Saga is 100% digital start to finish.

Oh but I know we have it because I just bought it. I just don't know where it's hiding.

This one won't scare you if you saw the original. But I'd love to see a modern teen's reaction to the original.
