Comic Publishing Moves to the Web

The New York Times reports on the state of comics on the web. It seems that comics are confronting the same issues as other publishers:

“We realize what a great promotional tool the Internet is,” [Marvel Publisher Dan Buckley] said. But like other print media, “we’re all waiting” as digital technologies create challenges and opportunities… Mr. Buckley said he was not yet convinced that reading a comic book online delivered the “whole experience” of reading a printed comic book.”

But of course, the more things change, the more they stay the same:

“Many see no alternative for the industry but to adapt to digital technology.”
