You may have noticed that in 2005, the "webcomics blogosphere" took off like never before. There were almost as many people writing about webcomics as making them (okay not really, but there were a whole lot more blog posts about webcomics this year.) We gathered together several popular bloggers for an online roundtable discussion on webcomics here at the tail end of 2005.
We talked about webcomics and creators, art and commerce and of course, webcomics drama. Plus some predictions for the year ahead.

These webcomic kids today, they just love drawing other people's comics for them. They can't make their own updates, but they seem to make time to make other people's. Well heck, if they wanna do my work for me for a week, that's fine by me.Guest week? Pah! Back in my day, you drew your own comics. You didn't let just anyone go around drawing your comics for you. Why, if you found out someone else was drawing your comics, you'd take them to court! And back then you didn't take them to some namby pamby courthouse, where you'd whine to a judge and he'd make them give you money, no sir, back then you'd take 'em to a courtyard, so you could challenge them to a duel.
