We could get Hobbes Bucks or Hark Doubloons, maybe. Seriously, it’s an interesting angle that could be used to promote involvement in a comic’s site. Perhaps you could earn some site coin when you donated real cash, commented or created fan art which could ‘buy’ a cameo or an in-comic product placement, if you want to get all entrepreneurial. Maybe with enough web dollars a fan could buy a fan page with their own custom written comic. Imagine you could get a Ranger page on Moose Mountain or an expensive mad scientist character flashback. And, of course, this is a nice way to make sure ads look like they belong on your site.
