Howard Tayler's Presentation on Making Money By Giving Webcomics Away
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on January 5, 2009 - 15:29
I can't recall if I posted to this at the time or not but it's still a good refresher for anyone wanting to make a go at it in webcomics this year. Last August, Howard Tayler gave a great talk about his webcomic Schlock Mercenary and how he's made it into a full time business. It's a good talk - not just about Howard himself, but going through how the Internet has disrupted the existing newspaper comic strip model.
Slightly related update: Jeff Jarvis accumulates the depressing statistics of 2008 for the newspaper bidniz here - which only serves to reinforce Howard's point that chasing newspaper syndication is like catching a ride on the Titanic after it hit the iceberg.
