Have you gone digital or do you still get your paper copies from the store?

    Hey kids, this is something that I have had some vigorous discussion about and I want to know what you think:

    Have you gone digital or do you still get your paper copies comics from the store?

    Either way, make sure to support your local shop!

    I still buy the real deal. I'm always reminded of the famous quote from Porridge "I read a book once, green it was!"

    I also buy Physical. But I try to avoid single issues and TPB. I only buy Hardcovers and at best oversize if it fits the art.

    I have gone mostly digital aside from a few trade that I see for sale. My local shop is a little far away and the closer one is full of assholes. I still support my local shop through comixology though

    It's gotta be physical, I feel that way about everything, if you are buying it then you want to have something in your hand.

    I do both. Some comics I read digitally and some I buy to hold and savor the art.
