Appreciation for Webcomics Day And Other Webcomics Traditions

Eric Burns has a good post on the annual Webcomics Appreciation Day. I don’t happen to completely agree with it because I think the shared events of webcomicdom for the most part have been a happy experience for all involved and have actually served to introduce some folks to each other that wouldn’t have met otherwise. Still it’s a lot of work to make these “events” happen and the older ones don’t seem to have the “pop” they used to.

I think “events” can be a great experience if they’re fun and planned well. The recent 24 hour day event is a great one (although not all such events need to be so physically exhausting). What events would you keep on a “webcomic events calendar”?

PLUG ALERT: You can still play in the May Day event at Comixpedia. Some great artists have come up with single panels featuring the explorer Mayfair Day and every week you can submit your version of how he gets from Panel A to B. All entries get linked to at Comixpedia.
