It's now solidly in danger of becoming a trend. Goats is the latest webcomic to solicit donations to get the creators out of dire financial straits so that they can keep making comics. On the site, Jon explains:
Basically what Phillip and I have been doing for the last couple of years is "building the business". For those of you who play RPGs, it's kinda like leveling up your character. We've been reinvesting all the money we've made over the last seven years into the business, expanding our line of merchandise, dabbling with advertising and that sort of thing. We haven't paid ourselves one thin dime in all this time.
Like Randal Milholland, they've promised to increase their update frequency if they make their goals.
