If you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, Comixology's new Unlimited service is being touted as Netflix for indie comics. Subscribers pay a flat monthly fee, and they get access to a library of titles from publishers like Image, Valiant, Archie and more, including smaller self-publishers. And, like Netflix, new stuff is showing up on a monthly basis to keep readers hooked.
This month, as we roll into August, Comixology has announced the addition of another 25 titles --- and if you're looking for a good place to start, I've got a couple of suggestions.

This week on War Rocket Ajax, we're joined by Landry Walker! Best known to super-hero fans as the writer of Supergirl's Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade and Danger Club with artist Eric Jones, Walker talks to us about his inspiration for Danger Club and how he was building to the death of Supergirl (really...
To say that I was a big fan of Supergirl's Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade, an all-ages Supergirl miniseries published by DC Comics in 2009, is a pretty big understatement. I firmly believe that it's the single best Supergirl story of the past 20 years, with exactly the kind of fun, action-packed adventure that DC needed to offer younger fans...
