Dire time for webcomics?

Filed under: web — jlm @ 13:06

This recession has been bad news all around, with many businesses shuddering their stores and swathes of jobs lost. I’ve noticed several webcomics I’ve been following for a long time have recently shut down too. Bruno the Bandit announced its effective cessation mid-story. Angband: Tales from the Pit had an ending storyline for its wrap up. User Friendly has gone into repeats. Homestar Runner has quietly stopped updating. There’s a constant rise and fall in this “industry”, low entrance costs means competition is heavy, but I’m sad to see long-time players bow out in succession.
