- The rise of the internet brought us some of the first web-comics, syndicated by the internet. But how do you make money off of that? Well, they had to do a lot of trial and error, but there are now a growing number of people capable of maintaining a living (and doing it better than traditional syndication ever did)
I largely agree with the point you're making in the rest of your comment- But webcomics are not the best choice for a medium that's doing "well" profit wise. I mean, yes, you have comics like Questionable Content that are able to do it full time- but the vast majority of the time web comics are a profitless medium. It hasn't drained creativity from the medium of comics- but I would say the internet was bad for the profit margins of comics.
