1. 30 Dec12 notes



    Pursuant to recent discussions about the interplay between comics, Tumblr, and traditional “gatekeeper” functions in comics publishing, I’ve started a tumblr called comicsdemocracy that will reblog comics with 10K+ tumblr notes without comment. I’m just going to reblog stuff as I see it and maybe do the occasional search, so I’ll be relying on submissions to get the widest view. It’s not ideal — if there were some way to dumb-aggregate these things I’d do it, but I think the nature of the “comics” tag as a repository for (eg.) standalone fanart images would prevent it even if it were technologically feasible — but my hope is that eventually a picture will emerge of the kinds of comics that go genuinely viral on this social network, and what that might mean for the medium.
