The English-language version of the Shonen Jump manga magazine is dead — but it has been replaced with a US$2/mo digital subscription that unlocks the entire Jump back catalogue.

A little while ago I considered picking up a couple of long-running series, but couldn’t justify the expense. For instance, My Hero Academia and World Trigger had about 15 volumes each at US$7, so it would cost almost AU$300 to catch up. And they are relatively short — Bleach has 74 volumes! Now all of these are available as part of the $2 subscription.

That’s my summer comics reading sorted…
