Death of the Monthly Pamphlet?

Will the monthly comic book go the way of the Dodo? Are the publishers pushing us in that direction with the availability of inexpensive and comprehensive trade paperback reprints? Is it all part of a master plan to phase out monthlies?

Here is an interesting thread on this subject on the STL Comics message board.

When Beta and VHS were invented, Hollywood reacted with horror, and tried to prevent it. Now, they make additional billions off it. Same with comics.

The new formats can NEVER kill the original source material, the monthly comic. If this were to die, there would be no trade paperbacks etc. further down the line.
