Nobody mulls things over more than me. Just ask my wonderful forbearing wife.
I chew and chew on something, spit it out, chew it some more, until I've gummed every morsel.
But even I am getting sick of the sheer volume of speculation about digital books and comics.
Every site I go to. Extrapolating from very limited evidence.
It's a bit like trying to figure out global warming from watching the local weather.
Frankly, I wasn't really worried about books until this started happening. I felt books and comics were going to be just fine, left alone.
But they aren't being left alone. They're being pushed off a cliff.
I'm already figuring that it's going to be much harder to ever sell an existing bookstore or comic store -- no matter how well it's doing, because of the perception that e-books are taking over.
So far -- 1% of comic sales are digital.
Oh, well. I'll just keep adjusting.
