I'm always impressed by webcartoonists' ability to find new and creative ways to earn money, and none sound quite so mysterious and intriguing as the Cat and Girl Fun Club. Dorothy Gambrell has written a bit about how her income breaks down in the past, and recently she came up with an exciting new product for her fans. For $99, readers can become year-long members of the 2012 Fun Club, which gets them a special regular newsletter, tons of special Cat and Girl gifties (including a mystery CD and DVD), and discounts at Gambrell's store. It's a nice way to encourage readers to become patrons of the comic, and if you're a huge Cat and Girl fan (and I know many people who are), it sounds like you get some nice swag out of the deal.
Oh, and Gambrell has put a ticking clock on Fun Club membership (which I think is a pretty clever touch). If you want in on the ennui-filled grab bag, you'd better sign up by December 1st.
