Both The Comics Reporter and The Beat notes that Carla Speed McNeil has followed through with her plan to move her comic Finder to the web.

Also, Donna Barr, who has work on Modern Tales, has a number of books scheduled for release. Barr is another creator who has decided to use print on demand. More from the announcement below the fold.

Retailers and Distributors: Lulu.com is working on making books available directly from individual publishers through their site. I will be keeping retailers and distributors informed as capability becomes available.

Reviewers: Print-on-demand is, at least for now, a comparatively expensive method. If you would like to review any of the books, please consider viewing them in a ebook or pdf form. Unless, of course, you just GOTTA have your own copy. :)
