Snotty Pippen writes "Henry Jenkins, Chair of MIT's Comparative Media Department, has posted 'Comics
and Micropayments: An Interview with Todd Allen.' Todd Allen is a
professor/consultant with a
book on the business
of comics. The two discuss a number of online business models and web
comics, ranging from the print-to-web migrants like
Girl Genius and
Finder to the print-to-web download
of Flying Friar; the long tail as a
driving source for reprints & back-issues; and PayPal's effect on micropayments.
All-in-all, a fairly comprehensive round-up of the industry."
