Part II: Stepping into the Digital Age
However, I think the best way to find new readers is through digital comics. This is another huge problem within the industry right now – The Digital Market is unwieldy, inaccessible to new readers, and too expensive. Here’s what needs to happen:
1. All comics should be online
So far the industry has taken a piecemeal approach to uploading their comics. Most long-running comics are not entirely online yet. Let’s say I decide I want to read every issue of Detective Comics. I can’t do this through digital copies – they only have 50 issues available. The earliest issue they have is #575, and they skip hundreds of issues here and there.
