The Gutters is a favorite of mine – and here they look at the issues Mark Waid has had over his fandom of digital comics…
Hey Mark, don’t worry. We’ve all had those curiosities. Those dark, digital urges… and for the most part, they’ve worked out fine!
I honestly don’t get the reaction that certain retailers have had to Mark and Marvel’s new digital initiatives. We’ve been having different versions of the Print vs Digital debate for years now and I really think it’s high time that retailers stop acting so shocked and appalled that digital comics exist.
Maybe one day digital comics will be all we have. Maybe they will actually drive up demand for print comics the way digital music has led to a resurgence of vinyl records. Either way, one thing needs to be accepted and accounted for by everyone: Digital comics are here. They aren’t going anywhere. Banning an artist or writer’s work from your store only shrinks the products you can offer to a customer and leaves a bad vibe hanging over your store.
And, speaking of those print comics, guess who just smashed two walls in their store and is having a special sale this weekend? That’s right, us guys!
I’ve added their sales link, because I recommend them!
