At this stage, it's hard to draw some first conclusion. There seems however to appear some analogy with the music industry. You know. CD's are out, live concerts are in.
Mass distribution of comics are developing into this race to the bottom. Free stuff is everywhere. You can download an endless number of comics and never pay. Some comics-apps have been introduced that offer the possibility of micro-transactions, so that authors may eventually earn a micro-income, but no one has been able to get this stuff working as far as I know. Nope. Mass distribution is dead.
But THEN what? Live comic concerts?
