It looks like the current creators of Hi and Lois are the latest to be afflicted by Wiley Miller disease ("an irrational hatred of webcomics") - check out their current comic which slams webcomics (Oh... it's on. So on...). I would have cried from reading the cuttting humor deployed by the current creative team of this 45 year old comic strip (which btw are the sons of the original creative team, Brian and Greg Walker and Robert "Chance" Browne), but I was comforted by the touching thoughts of the Comics Curmudgeon.
FLEEN notes that most of the audience for Hi and Lois probably has never heard of "webcomics". Maybe Jay Leno can explain it to them...

Comicspace co-CEO Joey Manley writes a lengthy blog post about the growth of comics on the iPhone platform this year, focusing a lot on the messiness of where comics are on the iPhone apps store (apparently they're all over: music, tv, books, specialized apps, etc). I don't think Comicspace itself has done anything with the iPhone yet -- Manley's comments on what he actually thinks of the smaller screen format vs a traditional computer screen may have had something to do with that.
