Newspapers are struggling with how to make a go of it in an increasingly web-only world. Many employ a strategy of giving aways the news but charging for their archives. Coincidently that's the strategy employed by the Modern Tales family of subscription websites.

I'll try to make this page linkable to the issue archives but for now I thought I'd share a page with thumbnails of every Comixpedia cover. And I mean every cover ever as it includes a thumbnail of next month's cover from John Barber.
