As someone who has worked (not always successfully) to maintain a healthy community dynamic at Comixpedia, good articles on community-building sometimes strike me as interesting. They may not be for you, so forewarned and all that...
Mark Pesce wanders through USENET to Wikipedia to talk about the tension between community and schism, authority and anarchy. It's an interesting, well-written post.
UPDATE: Here's another interesting piece on the eternal debate: Is our wikipedians learning?

- Jen Sorensen's "Slowpokeâ€
- Rick Smith and Tania Menesse's â€œShuck Strippedâ€
- Spike's â€œTemplar, Arizonaâ€
- Eric Millikin's â€œFetus-Xâ€
- Tom Hart's â€œHutch Owenâ€
- Ryan North's â€œDinosaur Comicsâ€
Here is a full list of all the wonderful artists contributing to Serializer. It includes Patrick Farley with "Apocamon," Renee French with "micrographica," Sam Henderson with "The Magic Whistle," and Emily Horne and Joey Comeau with "A Softer World."
Publisherâ€™s Weekly refers to many of serializerâ€™s artists as â€œart comics favoritesâ€ and â€œcritical darlings.â€ Londonâ€™s Sunday Times has called serializer â€œhigh art,â€ and The New York Times thought some of our comics were â€œWell drawn and funny.â€ The Comics Journal found some Serializer comics to be â€œdaring, entertainingly perverseâ€ while The Guardian found artwork on serializer that â€œthreatens to seriously tamper with oneâ€™s smug equilibrium.â€

I watched Winter McCloud's interview with Jeffrey Rowland (Overcompensating, Wigu) last night - it is pretty damn funny. First of all Rowland is already funny as hell in his own way but it's all sort of twisted sideways by forcing him to behave a bit because of the presence of 11 year old Winter McCloud.
It's not that long either (Sky McCloud is doing a great job of editing these down to the good stuff) - you should definitely check it out. And the next one to be posted is with Rich Stevens (Diesel Sweeties).

Wish Manning L Krull a happy birthday by checking out Sleepwalker - his contribution to BOO! Halloween Stories.
Also, check out some scary-style Halloween art from the creator of Jeremy and Open Book, Jon Morris.
