Many of you youngsters won’t even remember Hepcats, but last decade, it was an online darling. I sold my issue #3 for $20, a sum that astounded me for a single modern comic at the time, before the bottom fell out when it became clear that the artist was a total flake.
Here’s the story of how he rooked his reprint publisher, Antarctic, from someone who was there.
Now, Tom Spurgeon points to a TCJ.com message board thread about Wagner promising the end of the story as a free webcomic. You can sign up for news from a Yahoo group, assuming Wagner approves your membership.
I’d love to see the end of the story, even if Wagner’s promised it before — back in 2002, he was talking about posting art on a website. The most important thing to remember, though, is this: don’t give him any money for subscriptions or promises.
