Grayscale vs bitmap mode

Did a test print of the first 2 ch of Here We Are webcomic. The tones look so much better in print than on web. I trimmed too much off the top and bottom so the ratio is slightly off (by ~0.25").

There's noticeable fuzziness and tone moiré in grayscale print vs sharpness and lack of moiré in bitmap print. These were printed with my BROTHER HL-2270DW black toner printer.

There is probably something about the printer's conversion software that is making the difference more prominent. I wonder how this works in riso since I've received mixed results (crisp and uncrisp lines/lettering) as well.
