it's the digital age at the end of the day, while physical comics aren't going to die, it's obvious the business model of the retailer's and the publishers need to change to embrace it
The way the retailer embraces is, is by actively promoting things that cannot be ordered through diamond anymore while maintaining a relationship with that new consumer.
The way the publisher embraces is is simple, bite the gun and drop the price for the digital issue. We live in the .99 pocket god/angry birds age and as soon as the comic industry realizes that, the better off they'll be.

Image is slowly embracing the price decreasing stuff, the Atomic Robo guys offer full trades worth of stories for just 4 dollars...this really isn't rocket science at the end of the day.
