    Default Zogonia?

    I loved this comic both on and offline but then boom! It dissapeared. It stopped showing in Dragon and the website is a blank page. Does anyone know what happened.

    I know that at the time it ended, Paizo's contract with Wizards of the Coast was also discontinues, AND Tony Mosley had just published a collection of his comics. I don't know for sure, but he may have pulled the site to boost sales of his book.

    I also don't know if he started anything new, but I haven't seen anything from him since Zogonia and Mt. Zogon ended.

    Personally, I liked Mt. Zogon better. The druidess Galeena was funny in a "completely insane" way!

    If he did want to boost sales he would leave a comic or ten still up and put a link to wherever he sells those books.
    Last time I checked, the site was there, but the page was a black screen.

    Or even all of them. The reason the Foglio started putting Buck Godot and What's New? online is when they found how publishing Girl Genius on the web boosted the sales of the books.

    Going away from the webcomic milieu, the novelist Paulo Coelho recently published his books, notably his best-seller The Alchemist, on his blog; inciting people to pirate it and translate it... His publisher wasn't really happy... But the sales exploded afterwards. (Source.)

    Both of those comics were very funny and it is sad to see that both of them have disappeared I have gone to that site for months now and all it shows is th black patterned background.

    IIRC, he's having "real life" issues. Of what kind, I have no idea. But probably the kind that stops him from being able to afford time/bandwitdh/whatever to an active (or even archived) webcomic.

    I just hope we don't have another Dave Trampier situation on our hands.

    I design websites for a living, and I've got lots of extra space and bandwidth on my servers... if anyone can get a message to him, I'd consider it an honor to host his comics and a site for him, for free.

    For anyone looking for old Zogonia comics, you can find them using the Way Back Machine (archive.org) - just search for zogonia.com and check out the Nov 2006 site. Not sure if you can see all of them but I've been able to look through a few at least.
