But with comic books, it's entirely different than say DVD's. Comic books in the secondary market actually fuels the industry. It gets people buying multiple copies with the idea that one day it will be worth more, one that they can sell and one that they can keep for themselves. With this mindset of the fans out there, the industry is actually making more money up front. And no one is going to buy multiple copies of a Digital format. And I won't even bring up the idea of buying multiple copies of a DVD in the hopes of it increasing in value, which is funny if you think about it.

Comic books as a whole is definitely geared toward reselling down the road and it's imperative that the industry continues to promote the idea that what they are buying now will be worth more in the future. Any other industry and product I can see them discouraging that idea. But for comics, just the opposite.
