My Digital Comics Manifesto | iFanboy

This from Mike Romo over at iFanboy.com

 

 

So, it’s been a little over a month since I really tried out digital comics on my iPad. Over this time, I have mentioned a few observations in my articles, and, much to my chagrin, over this time I have become a full convert to digital comics. With this article I wanted to share, hopefully one last time, some thoughts on what digital comics is bringing to fans of the medium.

 

 

First off, I realize that digital comics are nothing new. I’ve been reading web comics for years, and have read a few issues of this and that on various platforms, including Graphicly’s, for awhile now. But when DC decided to go day and date digital with the print versions of its books, I took it as a chance to really begin anew, to really commit to getting my comics digitally–if the experience was what it had to be. My reasons, by the way, were one of real estate–I just don’t have the room to store all of the comics I have collected over the years. I don’t have the time–or, more precisely, I don’t want to make the time–to go through my comics and organize them by title, all nice and neat, only to have to do it all over again after a year or so. Yes, I am aware there are ways around this, but still–we’re talking about a lot of boxes.

 

I must also admit to being rather skeptical of digital comics. What about the feel of the paper? What about the art–how would it look? What about the ability to hand them to someone and say, “hey, check this out?”  Would digital comics make reading comics more of a private thing, like listening to music in headphones? What about kids? The books in those spinner racks inspired a generation of comic book fans. But a month ago, I just went for it, and here are my thoughts.
