On the other hand, if the comic stinks… well, let’s just say, there is such a thing as bad publicity.

Still, Tim Gibson was undeterred by our (accidental) refusal to cover his book, and he contacted us again with the release of issue #6. At this point, I had no choice to believe that either Tim Gibson is some kind of masochist who wanted us to mock him relentlessly, or his book is really that damn good…

Outhouse Interview: Liam Sharp of Madefire and the Future of Digital Comics 
We can all agree that digital comics are the future of the medium we love. Though there will always be purists who demand their books on paper, their records on vinyl, and their movies on DVD, it is undeniable that every entertainment medium has been moving toward digital as a primary means of distribution and storage. In many ways, the transition is cosmetic. We may find it easier to access music through the iTunes store, or to stream video to our phones from Netflix, but when it comes down to it, we are still listening to music through speakers or headphones and watching video on a screen.
