Tom Spurgeon writes about an article today in the Times wherein DC Comics announces its new Zudacomics.com.
Launching in October, some bullet points listed include:
- Zuda Comics will be all-new, original comics made specifically for the web.
- Zuda Comics will collect submissions from the Zuda community â€” that means you. You make the web comics and send them to us for publication.
- Not only that, but the majority of comics we publish will be selected by the Zuda community. We’ll put up a batch of the comics you submitted each month. Then you and all of the other users will vote, comment, and rate the comics. The one you guys like the best is the one we’ll sign up for a one-year contract.
I dunno, you see this type of thing a lot, and I’m really hoping this works out for somebody (and I have to admit, even I am a little tempted), but I’m skeptical.
I think I’ll wait to see what the one-year contract includes.

This Zuda site is all written in a faux hip, casual "we be friends, yo?" kinda way that makes me want to be afraid. Very afraid.
And no terms listed on the site. Dubious!
Yeah, I see lots of getting taken advantage og here.
Or "getting paid" a few measly bucks a week for all rights or something.
