Please pardon the cross-posting.

Last night I saw a news segment about a new comic book about tsunami preparedness. Without Warning! Tsunami is the result of a collaboration between Oregon’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and Dark Horse Comics. It builds on their earlier collaboration, Without Warning!, which is about earthquake preparedness. The tsunami comic is available in English and Spanish, and the earthquake one is in English only.


The files are available online, but there are copyright restrictions listed in each comic book, and this note is on the OEM page:

Small quantities of print copies are available for free.  If you want more than a few  copies, please contact Althea.Rizzo at state.or.us<mailto:Althea.Rizzo at state.or.us> to find out how to print the comic book for your group.

I contacted Althea for clarification and learned this:
We try to accommodate as many scenarios as possible so people can get access to the comic. We can send up to 50 copies to groups. If groups want more, we can get them the files to print as long as they follow the printing guidelines as to quality of printing.

Since the PDF files are available online, I asked for further clarification and learned this:
We are fine with people downloading it and printing it for their own use. Print quality isn’t much of an issue in that case.

If they want to print it for distribution, they can, but we would like to see a consistent quality maintained. In that case, unless you are doing a large enough print job to justify the expense, we are happy to provide up to 50 copies.

The OEM site offers additional resources about earthquake and tsunami preparedness.
