While spooling through my Facebook feed earlier I noticed a page had posted an article claiming that Marvel was in the process of phasing out its reliance on printed comics, in a bid to move exclusively to the digital format and so cut costs associated with printing and distribution.
Suffice to say this really doesn't sit well with me; for me, half the fun of collecting comics is having something to show for it, being able to show off my growing collection (of both collected trade paperbacks and floppies) to friends. Not so with the digital format; and, having tried to do so on my little sister's iPad, I just can't get used to reading comics on a screen. I like the feel of the paper in my hands.
Does anybody have any information about this? Is it true? Is it click-fishing bull$h!t? I'd appreciate if anybody can shed any light on this for me, haha
