Anthology 2.0 and the News

I read my "regular" webcomic list through but when I feel like trying something new I often look to sites that seem to be a cross between old-fashioned artist collectives and print anthologies.  Zuda, regardless of its contest hook, is a great place to check out lots of new stuff, ACT-I-VATE is also regularly pulling in new comics (as well as updating many existing ones) and Top Shelf 2.0 has some nice stuff as well.  There was a good review of the many great webcomics that have appeared at Smith Magazine’s website, including A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge by Josh Neufeld and the more recent Next Door Neighbor project.  There is also always new stuff at Dark Horse’s MySpace Webcomic anthology, including a two-page Sinfest special this month.

Anyone want to throw out their current favorite spots?
