The Future of DBS

Lately, we’ve been under some pretty big time and budget constraints. To help cope with this we’re going to be injecting some of our old favorite strips in between new cartoons to help ease the burden. We hope this will only be a temporary transition until we’re on better footing. We enjoy being able to provide some laughs to the Army community, and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

Here are some different options we’re considering to help ease our burden, and possibly offset the cost of hiring a part-time cartoonist.

  1. We could release a DBS ebook that you could buy from us at a very reasonable price.
  2. We are also considering making coffee mugs, t-shirts, or other DBS  merchandise available for purchase.
  3. Community-led DBS: If you the fans would give us ideas for the cartoon we will draw them.  Keep in mind the story needs to fit in 3 small cartoon cells (I’ll tell you from experience, cramming down a story into 3 sentence is the hardest part of making the comic). If you provide us with a cartoon idea that we eventually use we will send you a full color print of the cartoon on cardstock signed by the author.

Please understand we aren’t trying to turn DBS into shopping mall. We’re just looking for a way to keep DBS alive and well, while providing something that you (the fans) will be interested in.

Last but not least, DBS exists because of fans like you. We’re interested in what you have to say. Do any of these ideas sound good to you? If you have any other ideas to help us out, please let us know. Please leave your feedback in the comments section.
