Collecting in general seems to have gone by the way side in recent years not just for comics. I never collected comics. I always have bought them to read them.
@Timothy what older Buffy and Angel stuff are you talking about? Remember Dark Horse only recently purchased the rights to Buffy and Angel this year so I'm correct, they only have the rights to basically Angel and Faith and up to Buffy Season Eight. IDW still owns the rest of the catalogue. In fact they just released last week a 100 page Angel special or something like that. So what I'm trying to say is that IDW will be the ones who will release their back catalogue digitally. I might be mistaken on this but i don't think so.
