For What It's Worth: To Digital Download Comics or Not...(Well, You Get The Idea)
One - I enjoy the experience the way things are right now. I like driving up to the store, seeing friendly faces, picking up my books, and sit and chat with people for a couple of hours regarding comics, local sports, movies, etc. I miss out on all of that if I just buy the download, read it, then discuss on a message board. Not that it's bad, in fact I encourage discussion on our Facebook page. But it's just not my thing.
Two - I spend a lot of time on the computer - whether it's real world work, or stuff for the website or show. The last thing I want to do is read a comic book on the computer (or phone). Now, don't get me wrong, there are good webcomics out there that I read, but I just don't want to read DC or Marvel (or the others) that way.
Three - I like holding the book and experiencing it the way it has been done for all my life. Sure, things have changed, but it's still the same experience to me. Yeah, it's old man syndrome there, so sue me.
If you want to buy and read the downloads, great! You're reading comics and that's all I care.
