I have been meaning to start a thread on this but it just always slipped my mind. Thanks for getting this one started. Personally, I do think it's cool to be able to read a comic book on a huge monitor, late at night and not have to turn on the lights to do so. The only thing I object to about this new way of getting comics is the price. I absolutely disagree with the idea of making this the same price as a real comic book that you can hold in your hands. The price of those books is based on the creative talent: Writer, Penciler, Inker, Colorist and Letterer, not to mention that they need to pay for printing, shipping, etc... So I get that the price has grown to a whopping $3-5 per issue.

But where do they justify that price point for Digital Comics? Not worth it. If it were at least half off, than I think I'd be okay with. But the biggest factor going against Digital is there is no secondary market. It's kind of hard to sell this if your book increased in value, which makes having the real thing in your hands more of a sound investment. Besides, I just like turning the pages, turning the book sideways or whatever to look at the art. The feel of it, etc...
