- Merchandising comes first in mind - connect your platform with a printing API (e.g. theprintful.com), allow publishers to upload artwork for their own t-shirts, posters, mugs and commission on each purchase.

- Author tipping, receive commission.

- A Pro account for the readers - subscriptions, reminders, additional content newsletter (interviews, artist sketches, tips), access to high quality images or access to live chat events with the authors.

- A monthly subscription to a printed comic book with selected (or themed) comics and share the income with the authors. My guess is that comic fans are one of those people who really like touching physical paper. This one requires more manual work, but can be offered for a higher price.

- If you gather quality authors - a paid and easy to use mobile application. You can share the income with authors based on percentage of views.
