  1. I have to pay extra for some digital comics? Come on, if you’re going to charge $20 then at least send me the media in the mail. Give me some real value for the spend and I’ll keep spending.

  2. Prefer the real thing, worth it to have the book in front of me. Then I know that I’m paying for something that others can’t just download for free illegally

  3. it’s only $5 more…

    nonetheless, i think the digital-only packages from the likes of D2D and Steam should cost LESS than their hard copy counterparts. how does sending something to a server and paying for bandwidth fees turn out to be a more expensive process than burning, printing, and shipping packages, plus dealing with defective products and returns?

  4. I’m a little curious as to why D2D has an exclusivity deal on this, when the retail version uses Steam as the method for copy protection and stuff.
    I’m asking this out of curiosity of the industry, did D2D approach you with this kind of deal or did you approach them? Did Steam turn down the offer or something?

    It just seems weird to me since the game uses Steam anyway, that’s all.
