What is it about Monday, Wednesday and Friday that make them the seemingly optimum publishing dates for webcomics?

Back in the year 2001 I was burning out on webcomics. Alot of the comics out there were just geek fare, and not particularly well written geek fare. Artistic ability was, well, a bit rough for most strips. I had never heard of most of the real good ones that had come out at around that time. And I was only 18 so I was at a particularly annoying age. I was ready to give up on the medium in general, move on to other things. Like Vampire: The Masquerade. Annoying age, remember.

If you've got some spare coin and a hankering for role-playing goods, former Comixpedia columnist Eric Burns is having an auction over at Websnark. The most recent item up for bid even includes... "gasp!" Burns-crafted artwork.

A quick thanks to our current advertisers: the webcomic Life On the Fringe and the human anatomy drawing course The Structure of Man. It looks like right now our Project Wonderful ads are from the webcomics collective The Chemistry Set, and the webcomics Crying Macho Man and Alma Mater. So thanks to them too (and all our PW advertisers).
If you're a comics creator take a minute to read Comixpedia's FAQ for you to find out about all the ways you can use Comixpedia. I also want to point out that each user blog at Comixpedia has it's own RSS feed so if you wanted to keep up with, for example, everything William Bazillion creator Andrew Farago blogged at Comixpedia you could subscribe to his user blog feed.

- Ka-Blam, the print-on-demand printer specializing in comics, moves into new office space seven times their old, replaces their old press with three new ones, and hires more staff. The POD business seems to be going well.
- I had no idea there existed an unofficial Project Wonderful blog and forum. Here's one post discussing the costs of ads.
Project Wonderful's prices are low, but I don't think most users realize just how low they actually are. I did some comparisons between ads on PW sites and other similar ads sold through conventional channels, and the results are pretty clear: the same ad space sold through PW will command a much lower price.
- Time magazine covers webcomics. Penny Arcade, PvP, Achewood, and Diesel Sweeties gets ink (errr... pixels?).
- And speaking of Diesel Sweeties, here's an article on it in The Daily News.
