I just posted this on the q&a and will repost it here.
Do you think a "print on demand" would work? Marvel could put about 100 stories fans can choose on thier site and fans can pick 4 to 6 issues. Marvel can then print them in a small trade or on a one of thier comic dvds they did awile back.Disney,wb and others have "burn on demand" type programs for dvds. Any chance you guys could do a "print on demand" where you print small 48 page trades (or comics on dvds) of about 4 issues folks can choose from your library? You could list issues on your site and folks can choose 4 or 6 of the comics you have on the site and you can print them in a small trade or on a dvd.
Any chances of this?
Maybe marvel could make some extra cash and wouldn't have to worry about not selling them as they are "on demand" and are not made up till someone orders.
