Chris Butcher on Phil Foglio's move of Girl Genius to online serialization combined with trade collections. Butcher is pretty high on the idea and says that it seems to have improved the trades' success at his store.

He promises to look at how Carla Speed-McNeil is doing with a similar venture. She talked about potentially making the move in the last Comics Journal. The interview was done just prior to her making the move. Which means the interview was conducted in 2005. And seeing print in 2007. The followup questions don't go into asking how well the move has worked (although, she's still at it, so it must be doing reasonably well). I also wonder how it's worked for Batton Lash.

It's a move marcos has essentially made with Carl is the Awesome, although the collection is a ways away.
