Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

* this Magic Pen serial seems to be heading towards something, perhaps sooner than later. Here is a bit of tweeted context for the most recent episode.

* Gary Tyrrell looks at Emerald City Comicon from the viewpoint of the webcomics creators on hand, as well as those companies that serve those comics. They have a really nice presence there, and like all the great convention areas there are fans that are flipping out because they can't believe they get to directly interact with this work they love and there are people that are in no way connected to what these folks do and enjoy discovering them at a show like this one.

* Ursula Vernon is one of the latest creators to use the sponsorship site Patreon. Speaking of which, it looks like the Meredith Gran one has settled in at the $1350-$1400 per month level, which is a remarkable thing if you think about it although nothing that's going to send people to write feature stories for the hometown newspaper. I thought Gran's profile was one that might be instructive for a lot of comics-makers considering one of these.
