what’s next for “my life in ypsi”

Mike from Caliblog just had this idea on how to keep my “My Life in Ypsi” comic alive. It depends on how much time I’ve got in August, but I may try to give it a shot.

…Instead of one carrier or distributor for your comic (like a newspaper), you could get a long list of fans and volunteers to carry ‘My Life in Ypsi’ on their sites. There could be a sign-up link for people who are interested, then all you do is: draw a strip like you normally would, scan it, and email it out…

Perhaps you could also, in your email, have footer info that people would post with the picture, for example: a donation link… a sign me up link (for people who want to also carry it)… an archives link (which would just be a link back to your site with a “my life in ypsi” category tag… an RSS feed for it… etc.

I’m still a bit hesitant about the format, as I really think my current style won’t translate well to the web, but I like the community aspect of what Mike’s suggesting. I may try to do a half-dozen or so two-panel pieces and give it a shot later this summer. I’ll keep you posted.

    Or you could package them in little baggies and sell them like crack, through an army of young thugs on urban street corners.

    I think your comic would look great on the American flag! Especially when it’s being burned! Maybe you could talk to Congress about this…

    Maybe we could just organize a gang of kids to mug select people in the entertainment business and force them to read my comics at gun point.

    Damn… I was hoping this got more of a reaction – no one else even offered.
