Hey, did anyone notice how typing "webcomic" into news.google.com only gets you joystiq.com ? And the result is a webcomic poll.
One would have to wonder what, if any, official news the webcomic community has, or even a real community. You have comixpedia.com (which you are reading.) You have the comicgenesis.com, drunkduck.com, and smackjeeves.com forums. Then there are buzzcomix forums, topwebcomics forums and probably dozens if not thousands of splinter groups that comprise of a handful of webcomic authors and artists. Yet not one of these is something that "everyone who does a webcomic" reads.
Oh what fun stuff I found today.
"Queer Women in Webcomics" – looks like Queer webcomics are less than 1% of all webcomics out there, good thing or bad thing?
"'Man of feel' may save us from endemic homophobia" , looks like it wasn't enough for Superman's canadian origins to come up (again), but he has now become a posterboy for the gay community. Oh and, Superman returns is now in theatres today.
Tired of reading the same tired story with the same tired character types? Maybe it's time to look at webcomic community collaborations.
Out in the wild wild web, there was a webcomic war that was created… by accident. There are also, dares, comic exercise,and jams. Crossovers have also been done successfully before. Also a quick note that webcomics are being deleted from wikipedia.org
