The Webcomic Telethon for Hurricane Relief was planned as a two-day event to encourage donations to the Red Cross for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
It ended up being the most important week in webcomics. And it isnâ€™t over yet.

Print versions of Reckless Life, that crazy Graphic Smash webcomic about that thief that likes taco bell and loose women, are now available for online order here.
All three major story arcs, Mad at the World, Dinner and a Robbery and Locke and the Las Vegas Ninjas, are up and available looking for loving homes. Each book is 48+ pages and only five bucks. Locke and the Las Vegas Ninjas will also be available for preorder at your friendly neighborhood comic shop in mere days.

Digital Strips talks with Brad Guigar about the recent Webcomics Telethon in this week's podcast.
Tom Spurgeon visits the now operating Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont.
Spurgeon also points to this post from the Litwack blog about harnessing file-sharing in comic scans. At this point I haven't seen a comprehensive survey of how many comics people are reading through downloading or sharing via the web but given all of the tools that exist for it, I'd be surprised if it was not as significant a level in relationship to official printed product as music downloads are to official music products.

The brand new Webcomic Wiki (or Encyclopedia or Codex or ?) reminded me that today is TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!!! Check out the entry for it here. If you've got a webcomic in the spirit of this fine day please post a link below.
Also, we're discussing the name of the wiki/encyclopedia/codex/???? project right now - if you've got an idea or an opinion please weigh in on the discussion over there.
