Sponsor Digital Strips

Our little site has come a long way since it’s beginnings on blogger. It took a year for us to move off the free hosting site but when we did we introduced advertising on the site that managed to support us despite being exclusive to webcomics. With the changing times we adjusted and used Project Wonderful for awhile.¬†Although it was not as lucrative as our early attempts it was definitely a whole easier. Managing advertising kind of sucks. They reinvented advertising by giving us the power to choose what ads appeared on our site.

We moved on yet again back in 2012 when Jason and Steve took over managing most of the site. They collectively made the decision to eliminate advertising altogether and the site has been ad free ever since. From an editor point of view this made life extremely easy for me. The only work left for me to do was the occasional site updates and checking in on the podcast.

Two years later it occurs to me that perhaps people might want to support us out of the goodness of their hearts. From an owner perspective it costs about $50 a month to run this site what with libsyn, dreamhost, and the modest donations I give my two champions. If anyone would like to support us with more then just clicks or the 20,000 podcast downloads per month we are going to start offering donations buttons below. These will not be available on the main site so as to keep it clutter free.

Thank you!

  1. Hey guys…sorry to use the “GIVE US MONEY! contact form” but I couldn’t find another way to contact you guys…

    I was listening to your interview with Fes, and thought I’d check out your site. If you guys would be up for it, I’d like to talk to you about a few things to see if we can help each other…

    First, I’m writer/artist of a digital/print comic (really, released simultaneously, not one of those second thought digital deals) about redneck superheroes at NEXComic.com . If you guys would be up for talking about it on the show, that would be awesome. I’m releasing it by book instead of page, with the second book coming in March.

    Second, myself and two friends tried our hand at a website centered around Web/Digital comics at http://www.DigitalComicsOnline.com . I’m a designer, and worked long and hard building a very flexible site…then my friends got lazyass and I was left holding the site. Well, it was either DCO or NEX, and I love my comic so NEX won. That being said, I wonder if there’s a way we could collaborate on a digital/webcomics site? I can write one to two articles a week, but not enough to keep a site like that viable.

    Third, I’ll be hitting several cons this year selling my comics. While there, I could probably get some after the show interviews that may be harder for someone that doesn’t create their own comic. Additionally, it gives me a lot of inside perspective as someone that’s been published professionally (small time), and also gone out on his own.

    Let me know what you think,
