Free Comics! Everything has changed at Pixelstrips.com, a web comic community with more than 600 pages of 30 original comics. All content on the site including comics, archives, tutorials and extras are now free for everyone to enjoy. No more subscription fees.
According to Kevin Volo, creator of Pixelstrips.com, “We’ve been looking into going totally free for quite some time now and decided that sooner rather than later was the right time to do it. I think it’s just the next step in the continuing evolution of the site.” Since the inception of Pixelstrips.com in September of 2005 the site has been subscription only.
“Payment models for web comic sites are always tricky,” continued Volo. “Many start out as subscription sites and move to where we are now. Between sites like YouTube, MySpace and the medium of podcasting, people want and now expect their content to be free.”
Pixelstrips.com has attracted a diverse array of professional artists and creators and features many of the best established and up-and-coming comics online. You can find several genres on the site ranging from horror and sci-fi to superhero, manga and even westerns.
“What artist doesn’t want their work seen by the widest audience possible? I personally do two comics on the site, Heroes Exposed and Big Iron, and I can’t wait for them to be seen by everyone who stops by the site.”
