flatbear:

Aight I just worked a Wednesday, which translated from comics means ‘FUCK OH GOD FUCK I AM SO TIRED WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE WANT COMICS UGH GOD’, so I am going to tag in my pal Starkexpos, who has a much better answer for this than I do.
Take it away, Mandy.
‘Two wrongs, sadly, do not make a singular right. Stealing is stealing. I don’t believe in Robin Hood. This isn’t Les Mis and comics aren’t a loaf of bread. The Anon who simply couldn’t find a solution to pay for comics overlooked 2 simple things: 1) libraries and 2) getting a job. If your parents do not support a weekly purchase of comics, moreover a comic that is $2.99, perhaps by doing chores around the house or for a neighbor, they can buy comics.
If a book is going to get cancelled, it impacts multiple people. Writers. Pencillers. Inkers. Colorists. Letterers. Editors. Readers. Long story short, low sales impact a title’s longevity. Take the fucking high road. Support an industry that needs your support. Don’t be the lowest common denominator.’
 
Ditto.

good times

  8. thyrza said: The impact it has on any industry aside, I think the biggest point I can make re: downloading a comic/movie/whatever is that … it’s still an illegal act. It doesn’t really need any further justification.
