Default [Article] Simulpub Manga - Not fit for purpose?

There is a new wave in digital manga - releases of single chapters of series, more and more of which are in step with the Japanese releases (or simulpubs, as they're known). While an interesting development, we argue that they are a frustration and a missed opportunity for digital manga.

I find a major problem with simulpub manga is that it makes stories feel frustratingly slow. Several months may pass between the release of physical volumes but at least you get a complete chunk of story all at once - to have scenarios be split up by multiple chapters over a season or longer is excruciating. I'd really only dip more into simulpubs for weekly series.
