Comics Are Dead
I've loved comics since I was a kid. However, the way they are currently sold makes it impossible to buy all the books I would like to read.
Were talking $4 for a single issue and DC alone has like 50 on-going series that interconnect. That's just not logical, especially with all the other, cheaper places people can get entertainment.
The average comic issue is around 30 pages. You can read it in 10-15 minutes. Meaning you get about 30 minutes of entertainment for the same price as a month of Hulu.
I have no idea why publishers don't offer online services to compete with this. I'd personally pay $10/month to read all the current DC issues online. Maybe make it $15/mo for access to back issues.
So, have you read comics? Do you still? What do you think about their publishing methods?
