Modern Tales, the premier (imo) webcomics portal, has announced that in the new year, its business model is changing. It will be moving from a primarily subscription-based model to an ad-supported one.
That sounds like good news to me. Free comics means more readers means more people to buy merchandise and eventual print collections. Plus (from the selfish side), I can easily block ads, while I can’t break through password screens.
Also, Eric Burns has accepted a position as Editor for the free site, tasked with handling submissions and growing the number of strips that are part of the site. Good luck to both him and Joey Manley, publisher.
Update: Eric has posted the submission guidelines for Modern Tales Free (which will have a better name).
