Looks like xkcd, one my favourite online comics, is entering into the world of print media. This is the article linked off of his website and I really like the tone and style of it; I think it fits well with the loose humour of the comic. My personal favourite quote:
â€œWe never made any projection â€” 10,000 seems like a good run,â€ Mr. Ohanian said, adding that this lack of research â€œis laughable from the perspective of anyone who knows the book industry. Itâ€™s what makes sense.â€
I also really like their direct-marketing method, relying on what has worked in the past and avoiding the more “traditional” route of going with a big publisher. Again, it’s all very in-keeping with the style and feel of the comic.
