Brad Guigar, the editor behind Webcomics.com, has announced that the webcomic journal blog will begin charging a subscription for access to its articles and archives. On the blog he writes:
Most webcomics are based on the free-content model. The “How To Make Webcomics” book is built around it. Why is Webcomics.com becoming a pay site?
Simply put, Webcomics.com isn’t entertainment; it’s a valuable resource for webcartoonists. It would be difficult to continue offering this site for free in its current state — and impossible, given the improvements we have planned.
