Anonymous asked: Do you think putting up comics online hurts the sales of the printed versions?
no. for me, i’m pretty sure it’s only helped. i’ve been putting comics up for free for as long as i’ve been making comics, and i imagine that’s how a lot of my readers first came across my work. i like to think i’ve built up a certain amount of goodwill with those readers, who in turn come out and purchase my comics when the time comes.
i mean, i don’t know what the sales figures are for ant colony (maybe it’s completely tanking.) but i think that for the most part, if someone reads one of my comics online and doesn’t think it’s worth purchasing in printed form, they weren’t going to be buying it anyway. it’s not like my comics are crazy expensive — ?
