    Is Slipshine.net putting up NEW Xxxenophile content or just republishing the old content? At $7 a month (their lowest subscription fee) it MIGHT be worth 10 NEW pages per month of Xxxenophile, plus access to an archive of all the old material. It's not worth $84 a year to have the archive doled out in 10 page segments per month over the next however many years it takes to get through six volumes.

      I suspect (as an online comics publisher that's looked at the same problem) the credit card thing is mainly to act as an age-verification system.

        That may be true. But, I also don't doubt that I might pay $84 dollars for just 120 pages of Xxxenophile that I've already read. That's not a bargain.

    I like how Studio Foglio has made their other comics available online. Passing Xxxenophile to slipshine may be a way to avoid certain legal issues that might be raised if they hosted it at Airship Entertainment, however, I wonder if slipshine will do their work justice. From what I've seen, you can see a free story at 1/3 size where you can't read the text or make much of it out. Phil and Kaja have made their other comics available for free and have seen a rise in their overall sales. Nobody is going to see anything at slipshine without paying for it, so I predict they won't sell any additional work because of it being on the internet.
