How many would be interested in such a thing?

Assume that such a thing would cost something, but be reasonably priced. Also assume that you'd be willing to pay said reasonable proce.

In other words, if you'd only choose an option if it were free, don't bother voting -- even though we aren't ruling anything out at this point. ;)

EDIT: BTW, if possible, we'd try to make the release either a multi-issue limited edition or an ongoing series... ;)

Look at Modern Tales and its associated sites for a model in which the creator gets paid, but viewing is still free

I'd be all over any of the options, though I voted for the OL comic. With my cash bein spent on DL:R, as well as the eminent releases of both the Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG and SLipstream, my liquid assets will be dwindling.

And good luck with this deal, and anything else you got comin for TRES! I can't wait to see that savage pulpy goodness. :jack:

I've been trying to wean myself off of comics, only buying really special ones like the new TRON comic or Truth, Justin, and The American Way. But then I find Infinite Crisis and Civil War too tempting to ignore... But nevertheless I've been reducing the amount of comics I get more and more each month. I simply don't have the time to organise them or the storage space anymore. By this time next year I'll almost certainly be a Graphic Novel/compilation-only comic book fan. And CDs too. Those recent 30 Years of X CD sets released by Marvel have been a Godsend...

Anyway, my point is, I really prefer book-sized stuff to comic-sized. Civil War is probably the last super-crossover I'll be buying and I'm only participating in it now as opposed to waiting for the GN to come out because I'm still getting Spiderman, Avengers and F4 comics (which are all going to be greatly affected by the Civil War storyline). Books are much easier to organise and you can't lose just one chapter of a book. :wink:

Ted Slampyak (the guy that does the Jazz Age online comic and Little Orphan Annie) has expressed an interest in doing either a limited run of TRES comics or a graphic novel. Unfortunately, it won't be for awhile due to his current schedule. You can be sure that he has an open invitation though... ;)

He's also mentioned the possibility of a TRES-Jazz Age crossover... ;)

On-line comics don't work for me, they just don't feel right, but I would buy a graphic novel!
