A History of Comic Sites

Don MacPherson posts a brief summary and a personal history of the various comic news websites that have come and gone. I miss Psycomic.com, only because they were generous in what they paid freelancers, and they sent me to Mid-Ohio one year. It’s an interesting history lesson.

    I completely forgot you freelanced for Psycomic. Was it during Randy’s tenure as editor-in-chief, or was it under Psycomic 2.0?

  2. Johanna Says:

    Under Randy. I didn’t remember the second version at all.

    Now I just need someone to do a history of attempts to be “the Amazon of comics”. I remember one out of Atlanta, I think it was, but I don’t remember their name.

    Hah I miss Psycomic too. Mainly because I was a board moderator being paid $50 a month to post on and monitor a board no one ever seemed to visit.:) (and only a tiny section of it too, Indy/Small Press)

  4. Don MacPherson Says:

    Oh, I forgot Psylum paid board moderators. Like I said in the piece on my site, the Psylum chiefs were spending money hand over fist, and as the dot-com bubble was bursting, not building.
