Digital is still collecting but without anything thing like the same sized physical footprint. At least with print media you have a tangible asset with a realisable future value. Digital, just as with music is nothing.
Double edged sword.
I'm 35 and have already filled a loft with 15 comic boxes so digital suits me just fine, ta. I don't buy comics as an investment.
I still pick up some dead tree versions but have cut down or else I'll be needing another house at some point!
