Joining a collective?
Dear Webcomics.com, I’ve noticed a lot of the webcomics that are around my level (in terms of audience) are joining collectives. As the odd man out (they haven’t asked me to join their party) my opinion has been, they should be offering me more then just a few promises, to get me to join. I’ve noticed many of my fellow comickers giving up prime real estate on their sites, over to a collective-wide ad banner. From what I’ve been told, this banner will generate revenue to conventions, etc. The collectives in question are also suggesting that they will help generate traffic and all of the other typical rhetoric. They are also being told that they may join other collectives, and some will even host their comic for free. Talking with these individuals, they have decent reasons to back up every red flag that I point out. My question is: Am I being too skeptical? If I’m ever asked to join one, what should I be looking for to decide whether a collective is worth joining or not? –Carlisle
