Yep, I even buy ones in languages I can't read for the beautiful art. Though I do prefer English versions. I have all of your books that were available on lulu and I got memento mori on amazon ^^
If Pink and Black gets printed I'd totally buy it!

For me it has to be something I really like - I'm willing to spend just a _little_ bit more on something I'll read over and over.
That said, I'm still pretty cheap... so a good price counts. = )

I like them, but a bonus is actually what it takes for me to say "OK!" *go get credit card*

I wouldn't think I was the type, but I wound up buying them before because I really liked the series. If you can really get into a series and like it, people will buy it up.

Dans le cas de Pink Black, je dirai non ! Mais dans le cas de Relic, je dirai oui !
Tout dépend donc de la série quoi. Mais je dirai pas non avec plein de bonus dedans aussi ! :D

Il m'arrive d'acheter des webcomic en version papier
1) parce que j'ai toujours eu une préférence pour les version papier <3
2) si y a des bonus pourquoi dire non ? XD
3) mais seulement si l'histoire me plait ^^;

I do if I really like the webcomic and there is a good numer of pages <3

And if its not super expensive OTL
But the bonus pages are a really good incentive too <3

I can't vote for two q.q

I'm between
- Not if the price is too high or the number of page too low
- Bonus Only

Honestly, if there is a bonus and I like the art/story/etc, it gives me more incentive to buy it. However, if it's too pricey for the content (in my opinion) I will pass up the bonus.

Usually, if I can read it online free, I don't buy it (I have too much paper and books everywhere) but if there is a bonus story only available in it (side story or something) that's even better than just bonus images. I might consider more heavily buying one with a small bonus story to it.

It really depends. I'm more likely to buy a webcomic in book form in-person rather than online.

J'achète. Recemment j'ai acheté plus de webcomics version papier que d'albums de BD officiels. Je ne sais pas j'ai toujours cette crainte de la perte de l'immatériel et de voir disparaitre une histoire que j'aime lire et relire.

I love to buy hard copies of webcomics, though a little bonus inside always helps. Like little side stories, concept art or fan art that was drawn just for the physical copy.

Perso si je lis vraiment le webcomic c'est que ça me plaît. Du coup j'aurais tendance à acheter la version papier si l'occasion se présente. Bon évidemment pas si c'est hors de prix non plus mais comme beaucoup je trouve qu'avoir la version papier à un charme inégalable.

I try to buy them from my favorites, and artists I really love, but I can't always afford them. A couple times, I've managed to get them just by trading my own webcomic books for them, haha

It's not that I don't want to buy them, it's that I can't because I don't want to spend alot of money and that money that's in my bank is the money for activities.

De même que beaucoup d'autres, je lis les webcomics et achète par la suite la version papier (dès qu'ils sont publiés en général XD). ^-^
Après, qu'il y ait des bonus dans la version papier, c'est encore plus génial ! Mais déjà, avoir la version papier entre ses mains, c'est vraiment super. ^^

Je ne lit pas de webcomics, parce que je n'aime pas lire sur le PC de live ou de BD. Donc par conséquent, si j'aime le travail et l'univers de l'artiste, j'achètes même si il est possible de le trouver sur internet. Et puis rien de vaux un ouvrage papier ^^

Oui, si le titre me plaît. C'est la condition principale (qui achète un truc qui ne lui plaît pas?). Effectivement avec un bon rapport prix/nombre de pages.
Si en plus y'a un bonus (genre recherches, croquis, etc), je vais pas m'en plaindre, au contraire; mais ça ne jouera pas sur mon envie d'acheter (ou alors il faut que ce soit une partie conséquente du livre).

If I really like it, Yes! and If theres a bonus yes.
And if the creator makes me feel appreciated as an buyer and not just a number yes, Also a plus.:heart:
I don't really buy things when I feel unwanted or uncared for as an buyer.

^^ Glad we are thinking on the same page, but that's really truley how I feel.
Sometimes people should treat others with kindess expecelly when they are buying things from you, I have seen people give HORRIBLE customer service and not even care you spend your hard working money, or even allowance on them, so I vowed to not SUPPORT those kind of people and people shouldn't either, because the more they support there behavior then the more brazen they will be because they figure well no one is stopping me so why should I, I make tons of money on them anyway why should I care?? Thus why, I make sure the person I buy things from at least appericate me, It doesn't even have to be BIG, just a thank you, a signature saying I am proud you support me, Is fine.

I always try to buy them to support the authors, but if it's too expensive, like $30 for 1 chapter (40 pages), no way.

Je me posais justement la même question X'D

Pour ma part je lis peu de webcomics, mais j'estime que si ça me plait vraiment rien ne vaut d'avoir le livre imprimé =D (pour le plaisir et aussi pour supporter l'auteur è3é/) Après s'il y a en plus des bonus c'est carrément génial~
