Hey guys.

We're two long time fans who wish to support Tatsuya for supplying us with thoughts, tears and laughter every single day for as long as either of us can easily remember.

Is there a way to do this, a paypal or a patreon site that would enable us to thank Tatsuya in a very direct manner?

/Ann Louise & Lars, Denmark.

Not that I know of, actually. Tat pretty much keeps to himself most of the time.

Someone else might remember more, though.

I don't know about sending him actual money, but his books are still in print. Given the change the comic has taken, I don't know how he feels about the back catalog, but it's the only thing I can think of.

You might try e-mailing him directly, if you can find his e-mail.

Thanks for the replies.

We actually did, about a month ago. So far, no reply.

We already own the printed editions; could give some away I guess.
I'm sure we can't be the only ones who'd drop in a few bucks every month if possible.

i suppose the next best thing would be to, um, not block the ads on his site? i dunno

suppose you could try private messaging him on the forum, in case he checks that stuff

You could connect with your local public library, and see if they would be interested in adding the books to their collection. Then buy and donate.

Oooh! That's a really cool idea. I think I might do that one myself. I love it when libraries stock a variety of interesting comics but it never occurred to me that I could contribute to that.

As I've personally had to deal with issues related to "donating" to library, depending on your country there might be more that goes on behind the scenes for library. For certain media at least in my country the library has to purchase "public distribution permit" from copyright holder/their representative or face legal action. Depending on deals and so forth this can range from as small as "free" to as high as 5 000 /volume. So don't be surprised if they won't accept your donation, it never goes to the "public" side and instead is left to storage hell or they ask more information about the media in question. Don't let this discourage you from trying, it varies from country to country and I only know how things are done in couple of them. Easiest way to check is to pick the phone and call beforehand to ensure donating is possible, remember to say the magic words "I will be buying this book for you so it will not be used volume." As some libraries have gone to "no accept" route just because they are donated volumes in poor quality.

I've personally donated pnp rpg volumes of out of print material and even with that the copyright shenigans apply. Decades after they've stopped printing and selling.

Other choices for donations are hospitals, tho just ensure to note Tat's printed volumes are not ones I would personally hand to child clinics. Hospitals also tend to readily accept as their budget tends to be allocated differently and they usually are except for the copyright shenanigans, not being freely accessible for public and all that.

Kilsalt, I'm in the us, I don't think there is anything like that here. May I ask where are you?

P.S. http://www.ala.org/tools/libfactsheets/alalibraryfactsheet12 This is info about book donation from the Americam Library Association.

Scandinavia, no need to go closer then that, the "socialist utopia" along with most legislation is similar in all nordics. It's polarizing thing as we have yarr-harr piratebay political parties etc and on the other end of spectrum a % tax for recording media (vinyls, cd's, dvd's, hard drives etc) that goes to copyright holders via goverment agencies. A guaranteed income that gets paid to various registered publishers and artists even if the buyer of the recording format never even used it to record anything. The tax is for "potential use" in same fashion as the libraries pay for potential loss of sales that publishers suffer when people check their works there instead buying them. That's leftover from first cassette years as public access to "record your own" supposedly would kill recording industry and a deal was signed to cover possible sale losses. They used the library legislation as base for negotiations and later it was then extended for cd's, hdd's etc.

http://www.ala.org/advocacy/copyright/copyrightarticle/librariescreatures

"Libraries are a small but significant market for published works. The vast majority of copyrighted works in library collections were purchased or were acquired through license agreements. Often libraries pay more for copyrighted works than would an individual. This is especially true of subscriptions to periodicals, to ongoing reference works, and to electronic information. These higher rates are presumably to account for multiple uses in libraries. Libraries often aggregate their purchases or licenses to enhance their buying power. In the electronic environment, this may mean that a consortium of libraries negotiates on behalf of all its members, or a state library agency may negotiate agreements on behalf of all the public libraries in a state."

From the site you linked seems to indicate there are similar shenigans in USA(I knew this to be case decade ago, but wasn't sure if there had been some new legislation to make more sense at it, apparently not), but like said it varies from publisher to publisher. Some allow all their works to be freely users, others are tight as hell and use it as another revenue "that pays well" along the rest. The troubles will start when the original local publisher has gone bankrupt while the work is still under copyright, the current importer(if the author is foreigner) doesn't own copyright permissions for the specific volume(as the local publisher had it's portfolio auctioned off to multiple buyers) and it's Sherlock Holmes job to attempt to track down who can release the volume you're trying to donate from copyright limbo. For good measure, throw in a situation where the original developer/publisher that then sold import/printing rights to various countries has also gone belly-up and has had it's portfolio sold.

Still for copyright holders it's better then certain east European countries where the whole "copyright?" thing is a joke and libraries are happy to get anything at all (as they won't get money to buy it from state either.)
