Boing Boing reports that Scott McCloud is now offering his webcomic THE RIGHT NUMBER, an early experiment in micropayments, for free.

The Right Number was originally presented in June 2003 using a micropayments system offered by a company called Bitpass, sold for 25 cents each. Since Bitpass ceased operations in January 2007, I’m offering Parts One and Two for free now.

Part Three was delayed due to severe hand strain problems on my part a few years ago and delayed again when I began work on my recent book, Making Comics. I do still hope to finish the third and final chapter and make it available at some point in the future. Part Three will also be offered free through this page. (Sorry for the delay!)”


  1. […] Scott McCloud’s The Right Number, a tale of sexual obsession and mathematics, began as experiments in both Flash-based comics and micropayments; the strip originally cost a dollar through the Bitpass company. Alas, Bitpass is now no more, and the first two of three planned installments are now available for free. (Above: panel from The Right Number, ©2003 Scott McCloud.
