I stumbled across dark horse's new "eComic" for War of the Worlds
and it got me thinking... is this a good thing? I mean i enjoyed it even though it was kind of weird flipping through a comic on my laptop rather than in my actual lap. It would be REALLY cool i think to be able to read back issues etc. online - imagine an online shop (or subscription service) where you could access a huge database of comics/trades for viewing online, or download as PDFs? now that would be cool for immediately catching up on the issue/arc you missed.
That said though, I'm not sure i'll ever be able to get over wanting to physically hold the book and feel the paper - check out the art as printed not digitally displayed. reminds me of this experiement i held last year where i bought all my books as ebooks for a few months. it was ok (def nice to be able to easily take my collection w/ me) but never really won me over - even as a part timer (some "e" and some not "e"). i'm basically back to 100% paper.
What does everyone else think?
