Would you pay 1$/100 points for 9 pages of a colored comic book download (probably a pdf)? All funds would go towards paying for copyrighting/rent/bills/etc.

AS I said earlier.. I'll likely keep it as a "base price" and allow people do have a place to give more money if they really feel they want to give more for it. I want to keep it available to a lot of people, but not make it free either. ;-;

well, I started out low to get a gauge of how many people would even be interested in paying at all for it. ;-; The cost to download and cost to ship printed copies would vary.

No because 9 pages of beautiful
artwork isn't worth $1 :I

I would pay more than that, at least $15 but since i know you put a lot of effort into it i would want to do more than that.

I do not think the majority of people would  buy it for 15. ;-;

Well, they should at least pay you what they would pay a bookstore, which I think would be about $10.

For a comic, haha nonono, 10$ isn't not the norm. About 4-5$ is.

Those are much larger than these will be. Those have much more than 9 pages, and are usally colored. lol

I'll be here the week of the 5th, so in about 2 weeks.

I'd still pay that much cause I know you'll work super hard on it^^  so that's the week after next?  I can send you my schedule when I get it so we can see if there's a time we could meet.

XD I'll likely open up a donations thing so if people feel they want to pay more they can buy it and then just donate the rest in a special section.

I totally would, for me the bigger question is could-- Since I don't really have any money except from the rare commissions here and there (as with many of the younger people on dA), so I think it would be a good idea to make 2 separate polls; one for "would" and one for "could", if that makes sense? ^^"

I'm just looking for a ballpark estimate. I know the majority of the people that say they would will not end up getting one. However, I do not think 100pints is asking too much, it's only a dollar. My view is, and I may sound harsh on this: If somebody wants something, save up for it. I know not everyone has access to getting points or paying for things online, but there are MANY ways to get money these days without needing a bank account or paypal. Who knows, maybe I might offer other ways of payment  to people who don't have access to money.

I would make a "could" poll, but that "could" can always be earned into "can". I also really dislike the idea of not being paid for work I am doing on my own time. Granted I'm making this comic for me, for my own personal enjoyment, but I do not want to just give it away for free. :L

No of course, why would you do it for free. And what you're asking for is actually quite little.. I was only suggesting the separate polls so you could get more accurate stats c:

XD I'm frankly afraid to see the actual number, but I'm sure it's not really that high. The people actually going to buy it. ;-; The Prologue "Endings" will be free, but everything else likely won't be.

not yet. It isn't ready yet. I will start that likely in July or August before the con. I don't have any sort of preview ready yet to show people to back myself up. So no.
