Digital or Bust: Marvel Unlimited

What is this? Some sort of follow up to the mega-popular Digital or Bust? Stop the presses! Or, I guess, stop the internet-posting?

So I have this little experiment happening in January. The experiment is switching from a physical weekly pull list to an all-digital weekly pull list from January 1st to January 31st.

Digital or Bust: Prologue
