Xaviar Xerexes

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.

  1. Why is it a binary? Some comics syndicate, or consent to syndication, and some don’t. Some need advertising or merch notices to survive; some just exist as part of a bloated layout, and could desperately use tools like this as a way of cutting bandwith costs; some are both of those…

    This is what gets me about aggregation tool arguments — either/or doesn’t work for a number of these beasties.

    Me, I just want a toy RSS feed or ten full of update notifications for strips whose maintainers are opposed to this sorta thing (or haven’t taken a stand), particularly if they don’t tend towards regular updates for whatever reason. I don’t need all the images harvested and served to me on a platter, but I’d like something more reliable than minor rant updates to tell me when I should be checking back.
