Alt-Cartoonist Says the 'End Of Alternative Comic Strips' May Be Here

"Call me a pessimist, but I think relying on alternative weekly papers to sustain alternative comics after this week is a dream," says "Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles" cartoonist Neil Swaab. He lays out three ways forward for working alt-cartoonists: a subscription-based model, more interactivity, and donations. UPDATE (Feb. 3, 1 pm): Swaab has removed the post due to what many saw as disparaging comments about web-based comic artists.
