Wow... the talk of digital vs. print comics (or illegal scans vs. legal, if you must) has BOOMed all over the place since Mark Waid made those comments.
It seems people's opinions fall into two camps: Waid is a digital prophet, or Waid is a nutty, tree-huggin' hippy. The former tend to be the more tech-savvy creators, while the latter are veterans who make their living in print and are completely FREAKING OUT over the digital revolution (as opposed to, say, learning to be open-minded, flexible and willing to change with the times.)
I made a career change from newspaper editor to "web guy" years ago. Even a decade ago, the writing was already on the wall for print. Why should comic books be exempt?
This came up over on the Disney Comics Forum, when someone posted a link to Beru's Disney Comics Fan Page -- a site that hosts hundreds of Barks, Rosa and Gottfredson stories. People freaked out, and the mods even went so far as to replace Beru's name with "XXX" so people wouldn't go Googling the site.
Ironically enough, that site has been on Disney's radar for years, but they haven't chosen to take any legal action... yet. In a more sane world, Disney would offer their own high-quality scans online for a nominal fee, but that doesn't appear to be something they're interested in doing right now.
Print comics people: The cheese is moving. Are you smart enough to find it?
