Warren Ellis » The Broadcast Of Comics
the problem with webcomics, as people said over and over again, was that there was no way to monetise them.
Way back in the day, in fact, people talked about how what the medium needed was an iPod for comics. I, and probably others, countered that what was in fact needed was an iTunes for comics. The delivery system, not the device. Comixology, Graphic.ly, iVerse and all the others are in the business of trying to provide the iTunes for comics. But, of course, with the iPad, we got the iPod for comics, too, the perfect device for reading them.
