    If you're going to make an eBook make it .cbr archives. For the uninitiated, it's essentially a .rar of images that are read through a program like CDisplay where it displays one page at a time so it's exactly like you're reading a book.

    As for moneys, just host it on some server or another and link it to paypal.

    While I can't deny that would make it easy, it would also guarantee that it'd be on every bittorrent site around within days.

    Those things are as easy to upload as they are to read.

    Hell, can you honestly say 4chan wont /rs/ a book that MENTIONS 4chan?

    Might be a little premature (and could be impossible for all I know), but I'd like to mention sendit.com. They ship to anywhere WITHOUT shipping charge. Which is a major incentive to miserly bastards all over the place.

    Wait, you mean people never make digital copies of printed materials on such sites?

    Laptop, PDA or printout, take your pick! I suppose you could just install a computer for use in the bathroom also.

    I admit, I would love to have the book as a Print Copy, PDF & a CBR since I use all three mediums and have bought comics I enjoy in both print & digital formats when available.

    And y'know what? It should be the current comic, #157, where the new dragon unit POPs over the city.

    Get it? POP up? :)

    Oh.. oh Titans...

    The pun. It hurts


    I'm definitely interested in getting 2 printed copies of the book, but I doubt I'd bother with a pdf version.

    Well, we suspect (and hope) that you represent the vast majority. I don't know what the margin is on an ebook but if it's less for us, we may be cranky.
    Well, to throw my own 2 cents in. I'd probably recommend sticking with a printed book. OoTS doesn't seem to have done too bad by sticking with printed coppies for all its books. As long as you're still producing new pages/books for the comic and holding an audience, it should see continued profit and you'll be far less likely to see it go up on a torrent site.

    Maybe put out a PDF with all the online pages for an easy download and read but I'd keep the exclusive stuff to dead-gump. Unless the popularity drops to a point that only a cheaper online version will still sell or sometime after you stop producing new content and the popularity drops off.
