i don't fully understand your upset with this point tbh. unless i misunderstand the program requirements completely, mobile friendly and print friendly are not mutually exclusive. my older series Rechargeable had a spotlight and snack feature and was read frequently on the mobile app by many users, and i am currently holding a traditional sized (7x11") printed version as we speak. when tapas was talking to me about featuring it, they asked if i could make some edits so it was more mobile friendly. the edits they requested? was to bump up the text size a couple of pts to make it easier to read on mobile. i did, easily, and the comic even looks better for it, and that's the text size you see in it now.
tldr making a mobile friendly comic does not mean making two completely separate versions. and if you're so busy doing all this stuff already, clearly this full time contract isn't for you anyway
