    June 2, 2011 5:45 pm @Wally - It is in DC's own best interest to maintain relationships with the retailers, rather than take the cavalier, "screw 'em, we don't need them anymore" approach. Retailers would be put out of business by 99 cent day and date comics and publishers would lose comic shops as the vehicle for selling their paper copies. There needs to be a balanced approach and I think DC is close to getting it right.
    June 2, 2011 5:24 pm @MisterJ - First off, your examples are of producers of physical products, which would only be applicable if anyone believed that digital boardgames or Coke could replace their physical counterparts.

    Because digital comics have the potential to make stand-alone comic shops unsustainable, publishers need to keep in mind the guys who are buying and selling their physical books. Unless publishers intend to do away with physical comics or have another distribution method in mind, they need these retailers to continue to sell their books.
    June 2, 2011 5:13 pm It'll be interesting to see who emerges as the iTunes of comics readers. (Note: this comment does not reflect my feelings about iTunes. It is only an acknowledgement of its position in the marketplace.)
    June 2, 2011 5:09 pm Bundling is the right idea, but charging a premium for the digital download is a mistake. 
    They should throw a bone to the direct market (and keep comic retailers in business) by providing free digital downloads as incentive to buy the books in a comic shop.

    February 25, 2011 5:40 pm Why does his torso look like a cobra? Why are his arms 3x the circumference of his head? Why????
    February 2, 2011 11:53 pm Sorry, I know this is more about the writing, but I think there's the seeds of something great in the visual style of Remote.
    December 16, 2010 1:15 am I'm totally put off by the taint-stripes.
    November 17, 2010 5:01 pm This looks horrible. That was some God-awful acting from Harrison Ford. Oh wait, is this supposed to be one of those parody movies like "Scary Movie" or "Robin Hood - Men in Tights"?
