As of the end of today I am resigning as editor of Clickwheel.net and GraphicSmash.com and removing my comic, Reckless Life from both sites.
I’m not so narcissistic as to assume this is interesting news to anyone but I would like to clarify that this is not a commentary on either site or the brilliant creators doing great work in both places. I’d like to thank the folks behind these sites, Rebellion LTD, Will Simons and Joey Manley for the opportunities they provided me and T Campbell for making those opportunities possible. Extra special thanks to all of you who kept up on my various webcomic projects over the years.
In the coming days I’m going to be writing an ongoing blog series on my experiences in the comic industry both pro and amateur, print and web. If anyone can profit from my triumphs and tragedies in the business of the business I will be offering my experiences for anyone who wishes to hear them. All of this will be happening at: timwagon.com
And if you liked my comic, Reckless Life you’ll be able to find out how to get access to the archives there as well as learn a little about my new creative projects.
I’m Tim Demeter. You stay classy internet.

Some may have noticed that Clikwheel.net has been down for several days. We are changing servers and the transition is taking a little longer than expected. We'll be back up shortly.
Thank you for your patience.

COMICS ARE BACK! - And this time it’s personal. Literally.
From today, you can create your very own comics - from panels or strips to entire graphic novels - from a huge range of actual comic characters, backgrounds and props. Only now, the hero is You. Or your cat, or your client, your best friend, your car, your kids, or Judge Dredd. The villain could be your boss, the neighbour’s cat, the éclair you lose a weekly titanic battle with, the Competition, George W Bush (or Sarah Palin), the monster under the bed, a bad hair day, or Osama bin Laden. The arena for your epic struggle could even be your vacation, the local park, the beach, your front room, San Diego ComicCon, Metropolis, Middle-Earth, orOuter Space (the Final Frontier).

Iâ€™m proud to announce some great new action comics joining the Graphic Smash team, specifically Gunnerkrigg Court, Soul Driver, and Gun Street Girl Presents. All of our new comics are currently available and all three are have completely free archives and new episodes.
- Soul Driver, by Jim Giar is blood-soaked black and white noir at itâ€™s finest, featuring a cast of no-good-nicks sure to sure to please any fan of crime drama. Giar brings the intensity hot and heavy so try not to wear out the edge of your seat too quickly!
- Gunnerkrigg Court, by Tom Siddell is a story set in a boarding school full of the strange, the weird, and the just plain creepy. Gunnerkrig mixes elements of fantasy and steampunk into world full of monsters, robots, and mystery all rendered in Siddellâ€™s beautifully minimalist approach.
- Last and certainly not least, Graphic Smash is elated to welcome back Barbara Lien-Cooper and Ryan Howeâ€™s Gun Street Girl, one of GSâ€™ original classics. This time however, we have a twist. Not only will Barb and Ryan be bringing GS readers Liz and Eddieâ€™s continuing adventures in Gun Street Girl, but they will also be starting up several new projects at Graphic Smash under the Gun Street Girl Presents banner and you know with these two doing the comicing, theyâ€™re going to be awesome.
So come on over and check them out along with Graphic Smashâ€™s current roster of amazing talent. Thereâ€™s more fantastic work popping up online everyday and Graphic Smash is going to keep bringing it to you!

Today we're launching the next step for our reader featuring more content and a user controlled upload feature. You can find it here.
