People are usually willing to pay a fee for something that provides a consistent value. A gallon of gas today is pretty much the same gallon of gas tomorrow and may be expected to provide near identical utility.

A newspaper cartoon today may be a kneeslapper while tomorrow's version may only be good enough to line the bottom of a bird cage. If your cartoons would only be available via the web, there would be no value on the downside and your audience of budgies and canaries would suffer. Please, do not forget our feathered friends.

The problem I see with paid content on the web is that it is a-la-carte distribution and pricing, which ends up being far more expensive than buying a newspaper and getting the package deal. Far too many people these days fail to realize, or have forgotten, what an excellent value they get in their daily newspaper.
