I've put together this series of articles to share my insanity......to, umm, share advice and motivational words on "breaking in" that I've managed to mish-mash together from books, websites, comic creators, editors, business professionals, teachers, little kids that are wise beyond their years, and even that guy on the street downtown with the cardboard sign that states he knows how to unlock the secret, universe-altering potential of liverwurst.

You already knew this, you the astute webcomics reader, but on the off-chance you've missed it, Sequential Tart has posted several good reviews of webcomics to read and those maybe not so much.

Talkaboutcomics, the free forum site for small press and webcomics creators run by Joey Manley, is opening up its 24/7 Nightstar Network IRC chat channel to other cartoonists and creators who wish to host their own live events.
Manley said, "We're hoping it will work sort of like a 24/7 webcomics convention, with press briefings, interviews, panel sessions, book club meetings -- whatever people want to do." The channel will have no sponsorship or membership requirements, according to Manley. "It's just a service. Nightstar was kind enough to grant us use of their servers -- we're extending our invitation in the same spirit of community-building that Nightstar has shown to us."

John Allison's latest bit of brilliance is about to hit print!
Looks, Brains & Everything, the first Scary Go Round collection is now available for pre-order. And as if that weren't good enough, the first 200 people to pre-order will apparently get their names in the back of the book for posterity. It's 128 full-color pages, and packed with creepy goodness (or so rumour has it).

We'll try not to do this too much but seeing as we just started Comixpedia and webcomics have existed for sometime, we may on occasion point you to an old interview or review that we think is worth a look. Given the enormous growth in popularity of webcomics' audience it's also entirely possible that many readers aren't aware of these "ancient news" items.
