The IPC humour title was decent. Robotech was solid as you would expect in the Furmanator's hands. Spawn Issue 1 was Spawn Issue 1. Vampirella had some nice Art Adams work in it. Interceptor was decent.
I think it's fair to have a delay before putting up digital copies to give people a reason to go to a store, which helps the retailers. I do think there should be digital options to cater for folk with disabilities which means they can't get to a shop.
With Record Store Day, shops have to wait until 7 days after the event before they can sell excess stock online.
For those unable to get to a store for whatever reason - and not everyone has access to a comic store - it turns into relying on friends, which given many stores don't take the 2000ad specials is always a problem, or paying scalpers on eBay.
