There was a time when you would wait all week for your favourite comic title and maybe even queue for it. Times have changed and you can now purchase comics digitally in all sorts of formats with different types of software applications which allow you to view your old favourites or even new releases. The advantages of these types of ecomics or digital comics are that they can be produced without the need for printing and transporting and therefore there are less production and distribution costs making the products cheaper and more accessible for the readers. The reader also doesn't have to worry about their comics aging or becoming damages as they exist forever in a digital format.
