So, I’m sad to report that the Comic Script Archive might be going down. It sucks because I know it’s been really helpful to a lot of you– even some pros have emailed me, happy that the site exists– all of them commenting that they “wished something like this was around” when they were breaking in.
That said, my hosting dues are up and I’m at a point, until December, where financially I’m living in a bunker. There’s just no way I can justify the cost (which is around $120 a year, not exactly life changing money, but that’s a utility bill)–
So, I’m currently asking for donations– but I know most people are just as strapped as I am, so I feel a little weird about that. But, I think I’ve figured out a good angle that can help keep the site alive and also help out a worthy cause.
(I don’t know if I’ve ever said this on the site, but in no way do I ever want to turn a profit of the Comic Script Archive. It would be crass and icky to even attempt to turn a profit on the hard work of the writers who are so kind to donate their knowledge and words to this site-
Note: we have a few ads up, in the hopes that the revenue would defer the cost of the site– but really: yeah no money there)
So, if you can, please donate whatever you feel comfortable with here:
Pennies make dollars, so whatever you can do would be hugely helpful.
Now, on the chance that we do not make our goal, any donations you guys have offered will get kicked over to legendary comic writer John Ostrander’s cause: http://www.comix4sight.com/
John has been battling glaucoma and is need of support. You can read about it at the link above. It’s the most appropriate cause I could think of–
And, in the event that we OVERshoot our goal (I can only hope), all overages will also go to John’s cause.
