I wonder if there will be anyone doing the equivalent of Tundra Publishing in comics again. Kevin Eastman spent like 3y handing out like $12mil of his Turtles money to his comics buddies so they could take a year or two off the DC/Marvel grind and work on passion projects. Also to a lot of his relatives and local friends so they could have a pretty easy day job, too.
Though I think the Xeric was more “got a comic ready to go? Want a few thousand to get it printed?”. Which I would say WAS superseded by “put up a Wordpress site, maybe with Project Wonderful ads” back when people actually used RSS instead of corporate hellsites that love hiding offsite links.
I'm a grumpy queer dragon lady and this is my quiet cave for me and some friends.
