No, they are not crazy!!!
I think that the digital comic book has found a new way to do sales outside the "standards rules". Frankly, if I was equipped with a digital device reader (who want to offer me an iPad 3???? PLEAAAAAAASE!!!!!), I will buy as many comic books I want at these prices and I wouldn't care about the schedules because I will be offered a lot of new comics to come in waiting those I want to collect.
And yeah, else if I love the contact with the paper and to smell the ink, if I can have all my comic books in my pocket (with a back-up!!! NEVER FORGET TO BACK-UP YOUR COMIC BOOKS!!!!!), it will be better for my bedroom (more space to live in), for my credit card (less $$$ spend for a maximum of comic books), and almost all, less destroyed forests to produce the paper. So: digital comic books (economy + ecology) = a 100% win-win combination.

Just picked up Aesop's Ark and October Girl for 2 bucks. w00t! Sounds like they would be fun people to work with.
