Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Elliott Dunstan gets into the notion that many webcomics are support by Patreon set-ups. It's true; they are.

* I guess this goes here as much as it does anywhere else, given that it's the digital availability of a documentary being discussed. There's a documentary about Bill Finger over at Hulu. Finger was the great early writer of mainstream comics who created a vast number of things we think of when we think "Batman." Finger was not compensated or acknowledged by Batman's legal creator, the unctuous Bob Kane, whom most histories identify as contribution-light when it comes to the character and milieu by which he made his fortune. The late writer deserves every honor he is eligible to receive and every bit of attention anyone would like to give him.

* Gary Tyrrell sifts through various crowd-funders out there. Coming from the webcomics world where this is a foundational model, he always has something interesting to say.

* finally: Zach talks to Per Berg.
