    But...if you go digital you can't make variants! Think of the poor variants. You can't overship. You can't flood digital shelves. You can't say "This title is really a success when you count the digital sales" when all you have is digital sales. Digital would just be the (gasp!) people buying only what they want!

    Oh, and the customer might actually expect the books to be cheaper as well.

    That customer would sadly be disappointed. Why do you think comics are so expensive nowadays? In large part it's because the audience is so much smaller. If you throw 90% of the audience away by trashing the LCBS, just so that digital buyers, a small portion of the market, isn't deprived of their weekly fix for a month or two, then digital buyers will have to make up the difference. Look for your digital books to be ten times more expensive.

    You are saying everything in a matter of fact way while I'm saying everything in a bitter way. We are saying the same thing. Marvel needs the shops.

    I'm sorry, it didn't come across that way at all / I mis-read.

    Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if we get double shipped into penury for a month or two when they start printing again. At least, with the books connected to any events. Some titles might get away with just picking up where they left off. But that's another can of worms. I hate double shipping. But at least this time, we might be able to at least have one artist, instead of two or three.

    DC is going with the multi-distribution model and all books that're sent out between March 18th and June 24th will be fully returnable. Expect Marvel to do the same.

    Yeah, it means no Power Rangers comics. At least Beast Morphers season 2 is airing new episodes... though that'll probably stop at the end of April, they just aired episode 5 and usually go on summer hiatus after episode 8.

    Looks like digital comics are out as normal from DC too.

    I was unironically excited to spend three months of comics money on OnlyFans, but that dream is dead now.

    So...does that mean physical comics will be back out sooner rather than later?
