hahaha love this
I want to be where the people are... so I can hunt them down and eat them for dinner. By now, we're all fairly used to seeing Disney princesses hijacked to make statements about gender stereotypes

Colbert might be off the air for the next few months, but that hasn't kept him from making huge announcements. Also, this comb over thing is a good look for him.

I'm curious for those who sell their comics in print and ebook form. Have you found your print sales reduced once you started selling your ebooks? I'm trying to wrap my head around pricing and having both versions co-exist.

Right now for print my first 3 volumes of Frik are 52 pages each. (25 episodes plus 25 pages of bonus content plus 2 for other stuff) and I've been selling them for $8-10 a piece. In order for me to print my upcoming anthology that has all 4 volumes in one book, I have to cut out all of the bonus material due to printing costs.

The anthology book will be 104 pages for the whole run of the comic. I will have to sell the printed version for around $20 since my cost will be so high per unit. That's basically $5 per volume.

Ebooks are another animal all together. I was thinking of selling the full run without bonus content for $5. (this comes from researching how much others sell their ebook comics based on page count.) This is a huge price difference ($5 for ebook vs $20 for print), which means if I spend $1500+ to get the anthology printed, there's a very real chance I'll be sitting on these books forever because the ebook prices are so much cheaper. I also run the chance of pissing off potential fans who come to comic conventions and buy the book for $20 only to find out the exact same thing is in ebook form for $5 and they'll feel screwed.

I really want Volume 4 to be printed but I can no longer print each volume on its own, so that means Volume 4 will only be in the ebook or final anthology printing. I am torn on this. I could raise the ebook price to like $8-10, but then sales will probably suffer since there's no bonus content in it and the cost to page count will be much higher than other comics out there.

How do you all handle this? Should I just give up the dream of printing the whole thing out in one book and just focus on ebooks? I have to save up $1500+ for the anthology printing, but I don't want to do it if I'm just going to sit on the inventory. Thoughts? Thanks!

Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to a void on here. Anyone? :P

Ugh
Here's a helpful note for every creative person reading this: If you make something that changes the world, there's a chance you won't actually get credit for it.

This is nothing short of staggering. Worth every second to watch.

I was looking over my website stats for the past 5 years and I've had visitors look at my site from every state in the USA except for one. What's your problem Wyoming? Seriously. Everyone else is doing it, why not you?

They probably aren't my target demographic anyway, so I'm not upset by them dissing me. :D

Wow!
Along with being one of England's greatest engineers all time, Mervyn O'Gorman (1871-1958) was also one of the earliest pioneers of color photography in the early 1900's. Talk about a trailblazer.To this day, many of his photos are used in historical exhibitions, including this series of pictures featuring his daughter. Their clarity - which is sure to take you aback - is just a testament to O'Gorman's consummate engineering ability.
