Atomic Robo vs. the Death of Indie Periodicals

Last week I commented on Diamond Distribution's deathblow to indie periodicals and said that it wasn't the end of the world. Atomic Robo's Brian Clevinger says the same thing, but has a lot more experience and insight than I do.

Which is also why I sit up take notice when he says that we should've all been heading to webcomics a long time ago anyway.
I’d been wondering when comics would go digital since around 2002 ... I started going to conventions and the difference between webcomic money and small press money was so obscene it made me feel bad. Seriously. I was making more money by giving away my comic online than everyone I ever saw who self-published their comics or who went through smaller independent publishers and Diamond

...Basically: there was no reason to go into print. The only difference is that it’s now official Diamond policy to laugh at you for trying.
