Whereas in the last thing I wrote about I was looking at just some of the many (and there's tons out there)Ã‚ unique ideas that webcomics do, such as theme tunes, animated ideas and the like, however one thing that bugs me (and a few other people - just in case you start having a go at me) is the same.
I visit a webcomic for two reasons. (1) I love the art and (2) because its usually different. Often I usually don't notice if they're different, however when you visit two sites one after another (usually by links) and then a third and realise they're the same, it kinda annoys the pants off you.

This is kind of cool - over at Goats, Jon Rosenberg is having an "open mic" call for an upcoming guest week:
Between Comic-con and my impending move at the end of July, I am feeling like I may not have enough time to do all the comics I need to do, so I am asking you good people for some assistance. Between now and July 14th, I will be accepting Guest Comic submissions from all comers, be you a professional webcomicker or an amateur webcomic reader.
I will pick the best entries and run them while I am in San Diego (and longer if I get enough good ones). All of the submissions will eventually be displayed on the site on a special page, so even if you're not picked you'll still get to be famous.

Although each webcomic tries to put their own stamp across the world of the web, there's some that do exactly what the other does and some that are different. People that actually stop and think "I quite like that idea" usually set themselves apart from the rest, here are just a few:
When you think Webcomics the first idea that comes into your head isn't of having a theme tune. Why should it? It's just a strip on the web, it wouldn't need a theme tune, but to be quite honest with you, I enjoy listening to the extra content, the theme tunes as it were. TwoÃ‚ such examples are Boy on a Stick and SlitherÃ‚ (BOASAS)Ã‚ and Multiplex.
