Welcome to Week Three of Comixpedia's October 2005 Issue!
Phil Kahn provides our feature article with his Con Report on Ubercon VI.
We have Al Schroeder's interview: Horror is High School with Jason Thompson , creator of The Stiff.
Matt 'netpoet' Summers' reviews The Asylumantics by Chris Cantrell.
Plus, Ping Teo gives us "The Essence ofâ€¦ Character Abuse".
I'm having trouble taking it all in. It was an amazing experience. I'm still shutting my eyes and taking myself back to the time I spent there, with all the good times I had and all the new friends I made.
There are three important things to know for reading this: I have never been to a gaming convention before. I have never been to New Jersey before. And I have never been a guest to a con before. So bearing those things in mind, here's my report...
Jason Thompson has been delighting and horrifying webcomics readers for years, but perhaps his most memorable creation is The Stiff, currently running on Girlamatic, a disturbing story that straddles horror, teenage angst, teenage romance, but remains uniquely its own mix. Jason's mix of horror and high school seemed especially appropriate for an interview in the month of Halloween.
Tell us something about yourself that isn't generally known....
With the end of October imminent, kids in many countries are looking forward to that most scary of holidays: Halloween. Dressing up in costumes, banging on complete strangers' doors, and begging for candyâ€¦ good times to be had for all. However, the end of October also brings us to a special time in the world of webcomics.
Specifically, the anniversary of webcomic The Asylumantics. Chris Cantrell has reached a major milestone with his comic... on October 31st, 2005, The Asylumantics will turn four years old. With the comic's birthday rapidly approaching, Chris has planned a book sale, custom figurines based on the cast, and a contest that promises a great prize pack.
Dear Fiction Writers,
Please leave Dracula alone.

I'm working on the wiki this weekend. There may be periods of downtime as the software for this wiki is not as easy to wrangle as it should be. If the wiki is down at comixpedia.org don't worry everything is backed up.
mediawiki software is not well documented... grumble, grumble..
