WirePop -- www.wirepop.com -- announced today the new webcomic "Dans L'Metro," by Hwei Lim, will be joining the webcomic line-up on WirePop.com, the growing Manga and Manga-styled webcomic subscription magazine.
â€œWhen you look at Hwei Limâ€™s comics you are hard-pressed to decide if itâ€™s fine art or a form of entertainment.â€ said George Panella, WirePopsâ€™ Publisher â€œHer comics have a really unique artful and flowing style that is like no other. When she sent in her submission for Dans Lâ€™Metro we made sure we got her onto WirePop. Besides her captivating painted art-style her stories are deep and very thought-out. When you look at the cover image for Dans Lâ€™Metro you get a sense of play and eeriness as the character floats there in midair.â€

Lego comics seem to be an art form unto themselves. One fairly well done example of this "style" is the Unlikely Society, a funny super-hero parody.

Todd Allen has an essay on micropayments entitled Micropayments and Web Comics: Let's Do the Math. Allen's article tackles the resurgent issue of the micropayments model for webcomics:
How does the revenue generated from a micropayment compare to the revenue generated from a print comic?
How does the revenue generated from a micropayment compare to the revenue generated from a banner ad?
Do banner ads look better when you factor in audience erosion?
What generates more revenue a web comic book or a web comic strip?

Good post on making and promoting a new webcomic on the Ledgermain messageboard.
Why do a web comic? You know, I ask myself that every day... Just kidding. We do webcomics because its fun. There really is no other reason. You aren't going to expect to make money off of it or get famous. Its just fun. ^_^
