There are many talented cartoonists who deserve an audience, but will never be in newspapers. Hundreds of wannabe and professional cartoonists alike have put up websites, but almost all are actually losing money and most still aren't finding many readers.
It seems to me that if the best of these comics could be made available here on a fee basis, it could help both LJ and the most deserving of these starving artists. It could also be an inexpensive and fun way for people here who can't afford to pay for LJ to at least contribute something towards it's operation.
I wonder if members would be willing to pay a small amount for daily comics that they can't find, or are hard to find, elsewhere. I've taken the liberty of creating a poll to see what people think of this idea. I'd be interested in any and all discussion. TIA!
Would you be interested in selecting comics suited to your particular age-group and interests, even if you had to pay for them?
How many dollars would you be willing to pay for a 6 month subscription for a 6 days/week comic?
What categories of comics would you be interested in?
