Excellent Dave favorite comic book writer/artist Scott McCloud, a guy I have long read and admired and was lucky to once interview, has talked about the lack of good micropayment schemes. He seems to have found one he likes, and is giving it a shot by releasing a three chapter comic at $0.25 a chapter. I just might fire this up. When I was 16, I went nuts for the then brand new Zot! comic. One thing to point out, Fictionwise has a fine micropayment scheme that I use all the time, so such things do already exist. I think he really means a generalized one that can be used across multiple retailers.
