Great podcast --- always a pleasure and informative. But something's bothered me the past couple of podcasts when the DMP Kickstarter came up. Someone always talks about how it's a radical new publishing model that they aren't sure is a good thing. It's actually a pretty old model. For example, the Encyclopedia Britannica was originally published on the subscription model in the eighteenth century. I think a lot of books were published that way, with subscribers sharing the risk of publishing a book. I think it's great. Maybe the Manga Cabal should look into starting a Kickstarter for Yokohama Kaidashi Kikyou. I'd subscribe....
The past two podcasts you've discussed the DMP Kickstarter to get Barbara published, and both times someone has said, "Well, I'm old-fashioned and think publishers should take the risk...." (this time, it was Helen McCarthy. Manga out loud is always a great podcast, and this most recent one was especially interesting --- it's great to get the broad overview of an artist's work like you were able to do with Tezuka. All three of your guests were great, and I learned a great deal from this episode. The subscription model (which isn't so different from this Kickstarter thing) goes way back in publishing --- indeed, it predates "publishers taking the risk". The Encyclopedia Britannica was originally published on a subscription model. So, DMP just manages to out-old-fashioned Helen McCarthy by a few centuries!
