Open your mind. You can make comics with any tools you like in any form you like. And digital tools offer you the only chance you have ever had in history to control every aspect of the production from planning phase, creation and now distribution. They should be celebrated not sneered at.
I create all of my art completely digitally on the computer now and I don't feel my style has become more mechanical, or colder or tackier, all things that a lot of misguided artists associate with digital. It allowed me to produce finished art with a speed and consistency I wouldn't have thought possible. It also allowed me to explore different stylistic solutions to framing, storytelling, lighting I never thought about before. And I've only scratched the surface of what's possible I think.
It's a brave new world and ignoring any new tool, especially such incredibly powerful and flexible ones, is not smart.
Find your way, find your style and your technique, and everything's good as long as you're making good interesting art.
