Netflix for Comic Books
I would pay for a Netflix-like service for Comic Books. I’m thinking, say, $20 a month to have 10 comics or 3 trade paperbacks out at a time. To keep the pages in decent shape, I imagine the pages would have to be cut from the binding and laminated, then re-bound. Alternatively, I can imagine paying 50 cents to 1 dollar per comic in some kind of read-online subscription service.
I assume that both of these services would need the backing of the comic companies.
That seems like a lot of work just to protect the comics to be sent out. You also have to figure that any mail box that I have ever owned would require that the books be folded.
I think digital is the way for comics to go. There are plenty of of digital services that might be adapted to the comic book market.
