|02:11 pm - Please forgive my comic book ignorance, but. . .|
Can one "subscribe" to a comic book, or do you need to go to the comic book store each month to get your fix?
Because. . . HELL YES

The Laughing Ogre is where I used to, and Gary still goes for his pull. I quit buying comics though, because 90% of worthwhile stuff goes to trade paperbacks that are A. So much more resilient B. So much easier to transport C. often cheaper and D. Often available through the library, CML specifically has a fantastic collection. If I really really want to read a comic right then, I either read it at the store or just bittorrent the thing through a place and a thing I know.
I feel a tiny bit bad, I mean because I want to be a comic creator even, but the current business model belongs to a previous century and a more specifically, a museum.
But then again you don't really hear about webcomic authors complaining about piracy. Or Warren Ellis.
