Comics subscription


This year I produced three drawing zines. After the third one I started thinking of starting some sort of subscription service but I was way to busy with work and study to entertain the idea. I think I also read about Alec Longstreth's comic subscription which got me thinking.

Recently Pat Grant launched a comic subscription project where you get 12 comics over twelve months for $20 which was in turn inspired by comic artist Liz Baillie. I immediately signed up to the project, which was just as well as it sold out overnight.

It got me thinking about all my daily strips from the past year (over 100 pages) that I am yet to publish and also how I like serial comics. The a lightening bolt of inspiration hit me. I came up with an idea to publish the comics in four installments of 32 page A6 zines over 8 months (bi-monthly) and limiting the amount of subscriptions to 50. A subscription would cost approximately $10 for Australian orders and $16 for  the rest of the world.

Before I go ahead with the master plan and give you the details of where you can sign up, I need to gauge interest in such a thing. If I can get 5-10  comments or emails of interest in the project I will go ahead with it.

I think that top comment is some sort of weirdo spam. Neat idea, though.
