I now have a colour ereader (Kobo Vox). I love it and, at least to some extent, it's completely changing the way I read/consume comics. Back in my heady pre-ereader era (i.e. nine days ago), the way I approached creator-owned serial comics would be to buy the individual issues in order to support the artist, and then rebuy it as a trade or hardcover--the collected edition being my preferred form. (Yes, I know.)
Anyway, I've already purchased the first issue of Mud Man at my local comic store and preordered the next two. But beyond that? All things being equal, I'd love to use Comixology to continue the series in digital no-trees-were-killed form and then buy the ensuing (and hopefully numerous) books for posterity from aforementioned local comic store.
My question is this--do you receive the same royalties (proper word?) regardless if I buy it digitally or on paper? On a related note, do online digital sales count the same as store copies when it comes to things like a comic's long-term viability? If physical sales are a better deal for you, I'll stick to what I've been doing thus far. Thoughts?
Man, this was a depressingly commerce-focused note when I should've been commenting on the comic itself. For what it's worth, it was, as expected, really, really great. ALMOST enough to quell the voice inside me that wants to ask when more Kane will be unveiled.
