@Smith - "Not by much really.Readers are not keen on paying the same money for a cbr/pdf file."
Agreed, there is something about having a tangible book in your hands that makes it feel like more value when you pay money. Although I see the benefits (convenience/cost) of digital comics, I don't think they can replace the real thing, not for me anyway.
@Frank ' "Without even the modest name recognition of Dredd, I suppose Rogue Trooper is just a war comic trying to launch in a market place that's devoted almost entirely to spandex books from the big two"
I will never understand why the market here (North America) is so stuck on spandex superheroes. Given a fair chance by readers, I think Rogue Trooper could do great here - whats not to like about a genetically modified soldier in a future war? I would like to see Dredd succeed here (and see them give rouge another shot), but I agree it is unlikely. Ah well, I am one of the lucky few here to have discovered 2000AD!
