Ease of distribution. You can create something and get it out to a large audience pretty much instantly without the need for a publisher, as opposed to print comics.

Absolutely. Digital is the future of pretty much everything, including comics. It’s already happening.

Besides, I’ve seen what you do late at night on those seedy internet image boards! Oh yeah, I know all about it! YOU’RE the one with the problem here, digital comics, not me!
