Brian Young has an excellent article on comic piracy – hopefully this will wake up some of the publishers with regarde to their pricing!
But, I think, in some ways the blame lies equally with the publishers. Comic publishers need to understand why people are doing it and address the issues. People are pirating these comics, right or wrong, because they donâ€™t believe they should be paying the same price as for a print copy of a comic. Itâ€™s as simple as that.
The average comic book, in print or digital, costs about $2.99 per issue. With print, you have printing costs, shipping costs, wholesale costs and everything else to contend with to turn a profit. It makes sense that theyâ€™re priced the way they are. But a digital comic? Digital comics have far less overhead.
