Love THE TWISTING, but a bit cheap? That means you may have missed an episode! Or, wanna see what kind of comics this Graphic Smash thing has to offer, but don't like just one installment free? Then, folks, have we got a deal for you.
Starting next week (Oct 29th), GraphicSmash will TWIST BACK and rerun THE TWISTING in its ENTIRETY. Starting with week 1 this coming Wednesday and another episodes to follow each day for one week. Each day for a week, 7 days, a classic episode of the Twisting for free for 24 hours! All of this ends up at A BRAND NEW COMIC which in and of its self is a major plot point in the story and a GREAT JUMPING ON POINT.
New readers have a chance to see what all the fuss is about for free! Old readers get to read the series again for the first time! Cheap asses can hop on the bandwagon! It's all good.

From time to time an article about blogging strikes me as if it could have been written about webcomics. This isn't that surprising as "webcomics is to comics" in many ways the same as "blogs to print journalism and writing".
Read these two articles (why blogging is conservative, and why blogging is radical) about how blogging relates to its offline analogues, substitute the word "webcomic" for "weblog" and see if most of the points don't still make a lot of sense.

Leah Fitzgerald is Executive Editor for Interviews at Comixpedia. Currently she's reading:
1. Wapsi Square by Paul Taylor. The current storyline is coming together and it looks like it's going to be a treat.
2. Bruno by Christopher Baldwin. Don't we all have a Bruno moment now and then?
3. Dieselsweeties by R Stevens. Torpor is in trouble - Rich needs to hurry up and get to it.
4. Scary Go Round by John Allison. It's so cute to see Ryan in trouble - and in love. Da da dum.
5. Homestar Runner by Mike and Matt Chapman. Sure, it's not really a web comic but it cracks me up more consistently than anything else on the web.

"The Jewel of the Nile" is a weekly comic about a deer named Jewels and is now in it's fourth season. "Season," you repeat to yourself in an unsure tone? Okay, here's how it works:
Every 20 "episodes" (aka; a "season") are approached in completely different styles. The first 20 were cut and paste search engine photos, the second group were simple vector illustrations, and the third season were D&D inspired scroll drawings. Now into its fourth batch, Jewels the deer and Co. are sporting live actors in costume. To add to this radical shift, each comic is a series of animated frames rather then the standard static frame grouping.
