Are Webcomics the Way?

Posted on: November 23, 2008

I recently read an article on the cancellation of Blue Beetle and the writer seemed very keen on moving on to webcomics. It was the first time I had heard of a writer that had already broken into a top publisher saying that maybe it was time to move on.

Years ago, I think the thing to do would have been to take whatever following you garnered and go to Image Comics. Now, you don’t really need a publisher to get started in the comic biz. While it could take years to build a reputation and following, if you’ve already gotten some public attention, you have more of a foundation to build on.

Yet, I think creators still see the prestige of working in print, on periodicals, and most important, with an iconic character.
