Hey everyone! Okay, the good news is I've finished the last comic I was working on. They're all colored, they're all shaded, they've got word balloons, backgrounds etc. etc. Now the only thing standing in the way of inevitable progress (i.e putting them online) is the third party merchant I'm going to use. I wrote them Friday last to ask a question, I'm hoping they'll get back to me tomorrow. While we wait for their reply, here's a question you can answer, faithful readers, that will help me get the comics to you in the best way possible:

The service I'll be using is called Oronjo and it appears to rock hard core. Normally they use PayPal or Google Checkout but sadly those merchants don't allow any kind of adult content to be sold through them. However, we may be able to bypass those prudes if customers have an Oronjo "wallet". This type of purchase doesn't involve PayPal or Google, and is 100% adult-friendly and has no fees whatsoever. So, the question is, would you folks get an Oronjo wallet if it meant you could buy comics?

Please let me know, either here in comments or to my hotmail e-mail (knavebb@...).
I really want to hear from you, as you guys are the only reason I do any of this.

Also, as an aside, Oronjo has a super easy way to give to charity. So expect comics and drawings that help out with causes close to my heart. I'll also be using Oronjo's "name your own price" feature to sell smaller comics, single drawings and other small stuff. You'll be able to pay any price for these special items, from $0.00 and up. Isn't that awesome!?

You can see I'm stoked about this new business model. I'll be able to host comics right here on the blog, we'll give to charity, it'll be great. I have to apologize for the ridiculous wait and the numerous delays, but we're so close now I can't be anything but excited. get back to me and let me know what your thoughts are true believers! Hopefully the next post will be the grand unveiling of the new stuff. (Crosses Fingers)



  1. While I'll admit that I'm hesitant to sign up for a new payment service, I think it's safe to say that most people are likely willing to use the service if you've vouched for it.

  2. What went wrong with Clip4Sale ?
    It was perfect to me.
    Plus, is there preview animated gifs on Orongo ? Do they accept all files formats, cause I remember you ambitionned to make flash games and movies.

  3. I'm down for Oronjo. As long as I can get at your comics, animations, etc. and it's safe I don't see how it could be a bad thing. I'll put one vote in the "go for it" column.


  4. If it's free and not a hassle, then yeah, I wouldn't mind using it. Especially if you think it's great and will have all the features you need to distribute your stuff. I'll admit though that I always feel weird using online payment services. I don't even like paypal, but then again, what else can you do?

  5. I will be the first to buy the comic :D

  6. Looks good to me. I'm good with any payment service as long as my exposure is minimized. Since they'll let me buy as little as $5 at a time using a credit card and don't want me to give them my bank account, then I'm all good with it.

    I'm hoping that this means that you can drop your prices some to be more in line with normal comic book prices. I love your stuff and want to support you, but $11 is definitely more than 24 page comics usually cost.

  7. I'm happy paying $22 if it means you make enough money to do them more regularly.

  8. I'll be the curmudgeon. I'm not terribly comfortable giving my credit card information away to some unknown entity. At least with PayPal, I know the company, its history, its ownership, and its track record. Sure, they may be a bit draconian at times but I don't doubt the security of my payment data. Perhaps I could use a disposable CC#.

  9. I have to agree with the guy above. I'm more comfortable w/ images4sale although smackmynuts is right about the $11 being high.

  10. this service is fine with me and the price...whatever you ask ;)
