Come read Web Monetized Comics at Fliptoons! - MozFest 2022 Action Plan

Fliptoons is a new comic platform implementing web monetization. We host comics, and hold competitions for local Filipino artists. We held the Web Monetized Comic Challenge last year in which 60+ comic creators duked it out for the grand prize. The result was a staggering compilation of unique, incredible, and entertaining comics on our platform.

Here’s a list of our top picks!

However, outside their area, danger lurks and terrifying monsters await.

Ghost of Chiba (by Ian)

After his mother died a month ago, the 15 year old boy from Tokyo (Nagatomo,Konishi) has to transfer to Chiba to continue his freshmen year. Konishi always had this prophetic dream about alien invasion and doomsday.

Digmaang Salinlahi ay sumusunod sa mga pangyayari sa Digmaang sumisilakbo sa mga mahiwagang lupain ng Kahimanawari sa pagitan ng mga Lumang Kahariang Tao na kaalyado ng mga Enkanto at ng Konseho.

BERSERKING (by Kapumax)

Of course, these are only a few of the amazing comics found on our site. To get the full list, head over to Fliptoons.ph

This is fantastic, ty! I have tipped $! to all, but Ghost of Chiba and Berserking don't have Payment Pointers so the WM didn't activate. Do you have a ticket for the festival?

Thanks Chris! Unfortunately we couldn't convince them to create their payment pointers. Yes, I have a ticket.

You might consider asking if they would be willing to use one of these social good Payment Pointers and see if it raises money for any of these charities. You may also might want to consider asking them to put in the PP you have for Fliptoons. @ericahargreave this project might be a good candidate for a new resource and for James to join us in office hours. James have you attended any sessions? Have you used any of your tip money.

Hi @jamescasia,

If you are available and game, we have a couple of sessions that we'd love to have you join us for today:

And we are doing a Web Monetized at MozFest Podcast that we are very flexible on scheduling, although trying to keep to the open hours of Spatial Chat to allow for others to join us 'in studio'.

Let me know what works for you.

Love this! I saw that Ghost of Chiba and Berserking added a social good payment pointer, which means I was able to tip them all!
