It's the third annual Comixpedia People Of Webcomics List. This was the hardest one yet to compile. There's a lot of webcomics and a lot of people doing interesting things in and around webcomics. This list, as in past years, is an odd effort to compare apples and oranges: artistic achievement, audience popularity, technical achievement, business savvy, news-making impact all go into the mix.
Our second annual virtual round table on the year in webcomics features comments from Eric Millikin, Daku, Gilead Pellaeon, Mike Russell, Lewis Powell, Alexander Danner, Eric Burns, Michael Rouse-Deane, Johanna Draper Carlson and Gary Tyrrell.
Bryant Paul Johnson returns with another two-fisted tale of American politics and other circus acts.
Introducing a new monthly column spotlighting completed webcomics. This month covers Narbonic, Cooking With Anne, The Front, The Tyger and Europe's First Smoker.
Michael Rouse-Deane writes at the blog Webcomics In Print. We asked him to write about the top ten webcomics in print for 2006. After searching throughout his entire blog for books released this year, Michael decided that instead of a straightforward top 10 he'd compile a list of 10 webcomics books from 2006 that he thought did something well, something different or just plain warranted a mention.
Tyson Smith is a triple threat: illustrator by day, webcomic artist by night and filmmaker by the midnight hour. We may have gotten that wrong but this guy does make it seem like there are more than 24 hours in a day. Not only is he multi-media, but most recently in October he added the title of "dad" to his resume.
With its marvelously moody school setting and low-key heroine, Antimoney, Tom Siddell's Gunnerkrigg Court is a delightfully fun webcomic that still manages to pack in hints of danger and adventure. At last year's WCCAs, Gunnerkrigg Court was nominated for four awards and took home the WCCA Award for Best Newcomer. Even bigger for Siddell, however, may have been gaining noted author Neil Gaiman as a reader along with a mention on his well-read blog. We caught up with him on the edge of 2007 to see what's in store for the new year.
