Digital excites me. I’ve been reading comics on the iPad lately, and I love it. I’m tired of buying, owning, and having ‘stuff’ and being able to keep my comics library on a hard drive rather than on overflowing bookcases or taking up an entire closet space is appealing. Going digital blows up the old distribution models, too, and helps deliver your work to readers who might not otherwise be exposed to it (while, I hope, giving you a greater slice of the profits).
