If I went for that Valiant bundle what format do the comics come in? What would I use to read them?

I could be wrong, but I believe they offer either PDF or CBZ, maybe one or two other formats.

You should have multiple apps that can open PDF of course, and there are lots of free and pay programs that open the standard comic files (CBZ and others). I've had a few different apps and programs over the years but I use them so rarely and/or so long ago that I can't remember/recommend specifics.

This is odd. This 142 page GL Corps collection doesn't show up in the list of Green Lantern sale items, but when I hit "add all to cart" it appears for 99 cents. It collects issues 27-32. I think I already owned those issues, but, for $.74, I couldn't resist.

Week two of the Marvel Firsts sale adds another two girl hero books for $.99 each.

I am tempted to get all the Astro City comics. Bought the first series but I always wanted to read it (missed it first time around).

Just got a whole bunch of freebies at Comixology in this weeks other releases. They all had one word titles....
