At their LiveJournal, Slave Labor points out that they’ve a few more comics — including Ursa Minors! — to their selection of cheap, downloadable comics … and offer up commentary on a statement made by our own Chris Hunter:
The digital comics thing is going mighty well for us, and we’re getting ever-closer to making that downloadable comic announcement that I’ve been hinting at like a lame marketing whore. I’m excited about this new project, and it’s all shaping up very quickly, if you can believe that.
And in case things are too cheery here at SLG New Headquarters… I wrote some time ago about how there are some people in the online comics world who simply cannot say something nice without saying something unpleasant at the same time (sort of like what I’m doing here, but not really). The latest instance of this I’ve come across that relates to SLG is in regards to the downloadable comics. In a comment at Blog@Newsarama, Chris Hunter writes, “If I had the slightest interest in any on [sic] their titles, I’d be Paypaling my account to emptiness right now… Go SLG!!”
Uh, gee thanks, Chris.
But everyone else I’ve seen commenting on this (except for the old fogeys who talk about stuff like “eye strain”) has been incredibly supportive, and we’re quite pleased that downloadable comics have proven to be a great new way for people to read SLG comics!
As I’m a fan of Ursa Minors! who thinks it is a comic that just about anyone would enjoy, I’m going to throw out an offer to Chris Hunter — I’ll pay for your online copy of Ursa Minors! It’s a fun, crazy books that a longtime comic fan like yourself would enjoy, so go try it out risk free. Then come back here and tell us what you thought.
The rest of you can download the books yourselves at the Slave Labor Store.
