Language warning from the grouchy dragon queen.
So, my Webcomics industry analysis blog posts… Yeah, I’ve been thinking about this industry I work in (Paid or otherwise, hint hint*) quite a bit recently and it really is a fascinating one as industries go.

The WebHub concept (For Webcomics Hub) though is something I’d really like to see come to fruition, though I seriously do not have the finance or the exposure to give it any real justice. If you like it though and you would like to see it get some credit and viability in the world, spread the posts around (don’t spam though, I wouldn’t want to be associated with internet dickery of course) and maybe mention it in some forum or blog posts as you like.

Because Webcomics is a really awesome business to be in, but economically right now it really doesn’t work very well, and it really should have a chance to shake things up in this world.

*Less subtle hint: My maths show Remember to have about 800 reasonably-regular readers. If each of them donated just £1 a month, I could seriously boost Remember’s hosting and, whilst I wouldn’t be making even minimum wage, I’d be sitting rather pretty to pay a lot more attention to it as a “thing”.

  1. I’d love to donate 20 bucks or so, but I’m kinda strapped for cash as well. Actually, I have no income at this time.

  2. Why not try to join one of the many hubs already forming, like Blind Ferret, Space Dock 7, Top Web Comics, or somesuch?

  3. Well to begin with, Spacedock 7 is Sci-fi only, and Remember is predominantly Fantasy.
    Then Top Webcomics.com presents a rated system of webcomics, so it’s reinforcing the dominance of the few over the many, which just isn’t what the industry needs.
    And Blind Ferret is selective and, for lack of a better term, elitist. It deliberately picks and chooses who it publicises, and all of it’s existing members (All 4 of them) are big names already.

    WebHub would be something like them, but which let in everyone, regardless of their content or their popularity. It would unite the entire industry and not just the “chosen ones” among it. Right now there just isn’t anything like it.
