It may not always be apparent at the time, but without it, the world would not be quite the same without it. In the world of digital comics that moment was the publishing of  Balak’s About Digital Comics published on DeviantArt on February 11th 2009, and so as we reach it’s five year anniversary we look back at this watershed moment courtesy of the team at TurboMedia.
