Kip Manley has an interesting piece in his blog Long story; short pier posted on 6/26 called "Why You Don't Read Comics." Much of it first printed in Anodyne Magazine, it's a well-researched thought piece on problems in the comics industry now and in 1998 (when the original article was printed). It touches briefly on web comics in a couple of places and is otherwise just pretty darned interesting. Direct link here.

WirePop -- www.wirepop.com -- The first online publisher and subscription site of Manga and Manga-styled English comics, announced today that it will be extending the initial submission phase for the WirePop.com comic line-up. George Panella, WirePops' Publisher, made this decision after receiving many requests by eager artists that more time was needed. "I felt it was only fair to give everyone a decent amount of time to submit their work. Since it is summer and many people are busy it seemed to make sense that more time would be needed." said Panella. "I think this extension will give WirePop a better variety of comics to choose from to add to the final line up."
WirePop will publish 20 exclusive webcomics on it's upcoming website WirePop.com by independent comic book creators. "There are a lot of very talented artists just waiting to be published and bring their great stories and art to the public eye," said Panella "and WirePop is here to help them get there."
The extended submission now ends on July 31, 2003. "Now's the time to submit and join this growing company." said Panella.
For more information go to WirePop.com.
