I would never decry any service as worthless. There are people who have caught mass attention via Tumblr, and sold great piles of things as a result. There's a use for everything, and an exception to every rule. The exceptions are the reasons that others try. But Tumblr sets the bar of success incredibly low. The payout will almost always be zero. Not beer money, nothing.
Just because somewhere is the easy place to get attention doesn't mean it's the right place...

A visual content publisher promotes itself on visual aggregation and sharing sites. Utterly simply, perfect match.
I could do without the "begging for engagement" comments under every image, though:
"What do you think of this blog post about Marvel on Pinterest?"

The book is as delightful as one would expect from this talent guy. It's a collection of strips from the web site, but with a pile of extras and some improvements to the originals that make it more a Director's Cut DVD than anything else. However, I was just about to chuck the envelope away when I spotted a little sketch Mr Allison had done on the back, which I've reproduced above.
He has a knack of making you me feel very good about buying his stuff, and this is the sort of lovely little touch that creates that feel.
Nice work, sir.
