It’s the first Meanwhile of the year! One of the biggest buzzes for comics in 2010 seems to be digital distribution. Not only have people been talking about comics shifting from print to online, e-readers and color tablets will be game-changers in the publishing industry. If SCAD’s industrial design program’s involvement with the development of a tablet is any indication of a bright future for the technology, then I say to all SEQAhomies to start saving up money now, because the tablet is going to be wonderful for comics.
Resources | Webcomics.com has recently switched to a subscription model. Many SCAD students have been previous users of the website and its free content, but it looks like the resource is no more, unless $30 is paid. It’s sad to see it gone, as it was helpful to some of the students that were honestly interested in webcomics. $30 a year might actually be quite a bargain, ofcourse, but it was still nice to have something that costed nothing on top of our tuition. Meanwhile, we hope that the podcast remains free.
