Can you believe this is the 24th issue of Comixpedia? I really can't. (My wife can't either!) More importantly I can't believe it took us 24 issues to get to the funny in webcomics.
Along with some of the obvious front page changes we made for 2005, I am sad but relieved to announce that we're suspending the separate staff blog, 24 Hour Pixel People, for the time being. The two primary authors were myself and Erik Melander. Erik is now penning a monthly column for Comixpedia (the first installment of which is now up) and I'm stretched too thin as it is. But we will continue to provide news and views right here on the front page of Comixpedia. So let's get to those news and views.

For January 2005, we present the FUNNY Issue, a serious look at humor in webcomics featuring a cover from Chris Crosby in the super Superosity style. Leading us off is a discussion of the funny with some creators who make us laugh on a regular basis: John Troutman, Randy Milholland, Maritza Campos, David Wright, Brad Guigar and Ryan North. We also have a review of Jeph Jacques' Questionable Content and an interview with Tauhid Bondia, creator of Spells & Whistles. This month is also the debut of a new column, Through the Looking Back Glass, by Erik Melander. Every month, Erik will take a look back at the most recent webcomic news and connect the dots between the events of the day.
Jeff Rowland is the community interviewee this month - be sure to ask him something about his new project and his continuing diary comic, Overcompensating as well as his association with the Dumbrella conspiracy.

Jeff Rowland is the creator of not one but two of the most beloved webcomics, When I Grow Up and WIGU. He also does the regularly updated journal comic Over Compensated and has made noises about starting another daily webcomic now that he has finished with WIGU.
All that and he's part of the Dumbrella crew as well. Post your questions for Rowland, one to a post and we'll send the top ten moderated questions on for answers. We'll take questions until January 21st.
