Avoiding a subpoena


About fifty new backers joined us on Patreon last month — and have now received their 60-page NSFW Halloween eComic. If you missed out, don't fret! I've got another great bonus planned for this month. Plus when you join us today, you get access to an archive of 800+ NSFW comics and illustrations — along with all the craziness IO have planned for the weeks to come! This is a great time to try it out.


This episode of ComicLab is sponsored by Wacom! In this week's show, the ComicLab guys discuss pandering. Is it pandering to create comics that your readers are more likely to respond to? Then, a listener asks if Dave's aware that Clip Studio Paint doesn't have a CMYK mode? And does it matter? Finally, Dave receives a tweet from one of his readers explaining why he couldn't possibly become one if Dave's Patreon backers, touching off an epic rant on fan behavior. BUT FIRST... Dave tells Brad about the time he met Paul Rudd... and sparks flew. QUESTIONS ASKED...
  • To what extent do you pander to your audience?
  • Clip Studio Paint doesn't have a CKMYK mode. Is that a problem?
  • The agonizing eyeroll when a reader explains why they couldn't possibly become a Patreon backer.
