Alison Bechdel, creator of Dykes To Watch Out For posts in her blog about the possibility of charging readers a modest subscription fee to receive the comics via email as soon as they’re done. Bechdel would delay posting them on the web for a month or so. And if that’s not enough she offers an alternative idea:
Hey, and what about this? The email version could be like HBO. I could leave all the swear words in, and perhaps even have occasional frontal nudity. Instead of the #@&*’s and artful drapery that I employ in the newspaper version.
There was a lot of discussion from fans in the comments there. I wonder what Comixpedia readers think of this idea. Surely someone has tried this already – has it worked for anyone?
