I agree there's quality material for kids out there -- the challenge is finding it is not so simple for the average parent. My column probably won't go too heavily into altering what is created but rather altering how it gets distributed.
If that is the "average parent", then I would say the average parent is lazy and usually has no trouble utilizing online and IRL resources for their own needs and wants, so what's the real problem here?
As to distribution, after the announcement that Toys'r'Us would be stocking monthly comics received a big ol' yawn of who cares from basically everyone, digital distribution is going to be what the industry sees as key increasing young readers, and any pricing to encourage it will go through that, not putting expensive and easily-damaged comics back in places like gas stations where kids don't even go anymore.
When people like Jude both advocate wanting to order everything online and not leave the house, and also a completely new distribution system to return comics to places kids barely go anymore themselves, you can see the discrepancy right there.
