Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

* I would assume that the digital comics supplier comiXology is going to be a virtual one-industry Ben's Bargain's as far as sales and the like: they are sales-driven pretty much all the time, as far as I can tell. I might never be convinced that digital comics is way to experience the best comics in the world in an optimal way, but I'm already convinced it's a great way to read masses of comics that aren't quite those peak ones. Five dollars a trade from mainstream comics sounds about right for that kind of consumption, and I'll be surprised if I get through the weekend without buying something I'm curious about for myself.

* one imagines that there are at least a few lessons to be taken here for creation of comics material on-line just in terms of getting material into the right folks' hands. Then agin, maybe not.

* finally, taking full advantage of new buying opportunities with comics almost always comes with advice for on-line purchasing.
