I'm one for "other" means. Though there are some commercial furry comics I would love to get hard copies of, after I had read the stories inside. I'm going to wait till I have a little more money first.
some artist sell their work as albums on CD's e.g Marci's 8x10's 2007 & Vol2 Marci's 8X10's 2008
other times they're done without permission by fans for a bit of extra cash, usually through furbid or more often furbuy
