Are these the same as those digital freebee issues they're giving away on ArchieComics.com with the codes appearing in the print digests?

Since those are all samplers of older digital digest issues anyway, you'd think they could at least give you 20-odd pages or so. Still, if you do the math it's less than 10 cents/per page of story, while a regular ACP floppy comic (even in digital format) is costing you 20 cents/per page of story.

Regular floppy comics in digital format should be 99 cents anyway. There's no paper, no ink for the publisher to buy, no distributor (or no retailer... depending on how you want to define whomever you're actually paying for the digital comic), and no costs associated with warehousing or transportation, like there is with print comic books. They make WAY too much profit off those things considering that once the creative and editorial personnel get paid for their work, there's very little additional cost incurred by the publisher.
