News Free Comics ends subscription drive and dreams

Back in June, I wrote about Randall Vanfossen’s efforts to establish a monthly mailing of comics strips through a subscription model. He has announced that he was not able to garner enough subscriptions to make the publication happen.

I knew a subscription drive was a long shot, but when I made the decision to go that route it seemed like the best option to raise the necessary capital to make it through the first year. I have enough money in my personal savings that I could cashflow the first few years of publishing myself, an option that I had considered, but the subscription drive also served the purpose of guaging fan interest in this idea. Fan interest was very low. Alas.

Money is being returned.

Thanks Norm Feuti for the news tip.
