Why web comics and prestige formats?

Why do I review webcomics and collections? Well the answer is simple: time, money and space. As I’m nearly thirty, with a wife and a baby on the way. I’m in that awkward section of society that is unable to collect and more importantly store endless comics. The best that I can aspire to is the prestige graphic novel format, which take up less space. Web comics by their very nature take up no space at all and tend to be cheap or free. I’m also really impatient, I always want to read the next installment now rather than later, so the graphic novel suits me as is fairly self contained. This does lead me to the biggest frustration and drawback of webcomics: updates. Artists and writers will insist on having their own lives and take their time between updates. On saying that the wait is often worth it.
