Frequent Beat contributor Todd Allen has just launched a Kickstarter for a new edition of his book The Economics of Digital Comics —the goal is quite modest—$500, and it’s already more than halfway there.
This book is an update of his previous The Economics of Web Comics which was last updated in 2007. As you might suspect, a thing or two has changed since then. There doesn’t seem to be a single book covering this topic, so if it gets funded expect me to be quoting from it liberally.
