The buzzAwards honor comics who have exhibited exceptional quality in a number of categories. In an attempt to expose those "diamonds in the rough," buzzAwards strives to honors smaller comics (10,000 average uniques/day or fewer). The nominees will be picked by committee--not voted on by the general public (buzzAwards is accepting applications for judges on the committee. There is an application form on the site). This means that a comic with very little exposure and fan base could finally get the attention it deserves.
Submissions for nominations may be made until June 15th, and nominees selected by the committee will be announced July 5th.

Known for his quirky and addictive humour, Buonauro proved a prolific writer, being a primary creative force behind Dr. Lobster as well as a number of other works, including Gamer Hotties, Marvelous Bob, and his most current ongoing collaborative project, Wrench Farm.
Jeff Lofvers, Buonauro's long-time creative partner on many projects, posted this very Ã propos comment on the Wrench Farm website:
"He was a good friend and a talented writer. He will be missed."

Deppey has made the obvious official: Journalista! as a blog is no more. Deppey did say that he was going to be penning a Journalista! column in TCJ beginning in an upcoming issue.
It was a good read - Deppey really put a lot of work into scouring the web for stories about comics. I'm not sure that anything has come as close. Certainly none of the contenders for Journalista!-substitute have paid as much attention to webcomics as Deppey did from time to time.
Did I mention that Comixpedia is looking for a blogger(s) to take over 24 Hour Pixel People?

Two notes tonight: finally got around to upgrading the blogware to Wordpress 1.2. I know people love Moveable Type but Wordpress is so easy - I love it. The upgrade took about 3 minutes from download to done.

I will be posting this everywhere this week. 24 Hour Pixel People, the blog for the Comixpedia website is due for an upgrade and an overhaul. To do so it needs a new blogger or group of bloggers to make it his/her/their own.
So: Blogger(s) wanted to link to and write about webcomic events of the day. Gig is Monday through Friday (Weekend posts optional). Format of blog can go beyond webcomics to entire realm of comics, but should cover key webcomic stories and memes. Bloggers who have already blogged about comics for some period of time preferred.
