Retailers | AJ and Ben Trujillo, co-owners of Star Clipper Comics in St. Louis, discuss Watchmen, and the future of the industry — specifically, digital comics. “[W]e are seeing larger and larger numbers of younger customers who just get scans off the web, from peer-to-peer sites,” Ben Trujillo says. “They’ll say something to the effect of, ‘Oh, well, I’ll do that to see if it’s something I’m interested in, and then if I like it I might subscribe to it or buy the trade [paperback].’ So, it’s definitely something that we’re seeing an impact of.
