Once they start making digital comics cheaper [passing on the savings to the customer] then I will go all digital. I have never felt comfortable in a comics store. I frequent Midtown Comics, Jim Hanley's Universe and Forbidden Planet as I live in NY. No one has ever actually helped me pick out books, ever even when I was visibly lost when I started reading.
Also many people who read comics are resistant to change. This resistance to change is par for the course with this community, I mean people are freaking out at rumors of an Oscar winner [Jaime Foxx] playing a character whose race is not central to the character but I digress.
The point is digital is more efficient on every level.
I real don't get why so many black actors are taking the role of white roles. IMO it is a way to feel pity towards black people. IMO it’s a way to give something that is not natural to the role. This kind of positive discrimination does not give more freedom or more equality. On the long run it can just give more problems to pity somebody because they have a sergeant gender or race. Other race can become angry or jealous for instance Latin or Asian people could feel they were overlooked. The black people could feel the just got sergeant rights because the white people feel ashamed about their pass actions. Not that Electro needs to be white I just don’t see the reason for him to be played by a black person. I think it is funny that if a white person plays a minority group it would be so wrong, but if a minority group play the role of white person it is ok. You could say that if many white characters are played by minority groups the characters which have a significant minority identity somehow gets devaluated. If characters that before represent a sergeant group then why do we need that character when blacks can play a white role anyway. IMO you should stay more true to the character, for me it’s less real. Of cause the movie has its own universe and own reality I just don’t see the need for this change.
"I think it is funny that if a white person plays a minority group it would be so wrong, but if a minority group play the role of white person it is ok" - This is because in many cases being black is central to the character (example being Black Panther is the king of an African country and Isiah Bradley was experimented on first because he was black.)
WatX is always a great read so I look forward to that. I do want to read Cable and X-Force because I find Forge and Cable interesting. I want to see how Havok does in an important role so I will read Uncanny Avengers. That is about it though.
