It's not quite that simple, Eirik. There are legal requirements that
prohibit us from doing so.
1) The release forms we get for various items sometimes specify how they can
be distributed. Often they are for one-time publication use only and cannot
be distributed online.
2) Since the Æstel (and any other kingdom newsletter) requires a
subscription fee, an online adaptation (either on a website, mailing list or
private email) must have similar financial controls placed on it as per
Corpora. If a local newsletter is free, for example, then it can be released
online freely. We can't do that with the Æstel.
If the copyright holder of the comics wish to post them, they are, of
course, free to do so in whatever manner they wish, wherever they wish using
their own resources. We can't nor would it be particularly fair to them for
us to ask them to.
