Publishers Weekly looks at how print collections fit in with web comics.
Web comics are counterintuitive: they’re online for free at the same time the creator or publisher is offering the same stories for sale. â??You would assume that people wouldn’t want to buy something if they’ve read it already,â? says David Land, an editor at Dark Horse, â??but I’ve learned people love ‘stuff.’ â? In other words, after reading the pixilated electrons, fans want something to hold in their hands and very often that something is a book.
