Tonight I hit you with a serious issue about an article from October 2010 about one blogger's views on the future of comics. This is an interesting topic;
1) Because it's kind of a time capsule and useful to look back at how the industry has changed even two years later.
2) The topic was debated heavily back then and I still feel it's worth considering now.
At the time of publishing, Peter Rios (then producer of ComicGeekSpeak, now host of The Daily Rios) did a uStream session to debate the topic and later turned his recording into an episode of CGS. I was lucky enough to make onto the episode, as a passing fan of course, so I also view it as a relic of my own past.
I hope you enjoy.
Much thanks to Peter Rios, especially his ability to play up my loose strengths in the interview.

Please note: I use the word "rule" a lot to discribe each point of the article, these are not really rules, but editing them out made me sound more vocally awkward than normal.
