Super excited about this.
I like the ability to redownload very easily because I'm trying to contact apple right now to get videos redownloaded from itunes.
Sorry to post twice but i think i have a big question that i haven't seen asked and screen shot dosn't answer it ether.
What about Ads?
This is loss of alot of revenue for the big 4. I remeber reading once that a newspaper would be outrageous sumf money without ads. I guessing the same would be true for comics. I don't think i would care if ads where in the file but marketing dosn't seem to understand how to sale there product on websites or in comics now. There going to so scared of this new format.
@chlop - I see your point about the small LCS being hit really hard by this, but there already on the ropes. Most of the really small ones are going to fold, it's not a question of IF it's question of WHEN. Hey I like my LCS but if this works out I really won't have a problem not visting a dark dungeon each week and buying my trades from a book store.
A alot people are acting like there going to go to there LCS and there's going to be empty hole a week after this thing comes out. I think it's going to be a couple of years before the shops need to really decided what there going to do next.
I see this as the same thing as Instock or Amazon to trades most shops have to feel a major hit from these places but they keep going.
I really hope this works
I think it's going to be a very slow switch to digital the same way as music. I don't think were ever going to see a comic that's just going to be on Longbox. So there's no reason for some people to worry about this ruining there ability to drive to a store and pay x4 more for an issue. This program will live in harmony with the LCS the same way as Best Buy and Itunes for a long time.
Plus i think both DC and Marvel are going to have jump on board, just for the reason there comics are highly pirated already they may as well get some money out of it. With DC will jumping on board way before Marvel because Marvel has already dumped alot of money into there online program. There going to want to see some return on there investment before they pay someone else a small percentage of what they already do. DC have yet to try on online comic distrubtion maybe because they have been waiting for something like this to do it for them.
