Among other things, they talk a little bit about how they work, how Warren Ellis slashdotted them and why they're no longer updating their short-lived news-related comics.

A profile in the Singapore-based Straits Times under the headline "Dawn of the dot.comic" ("dot.comic"?) discusses webcomics and the crazy kids who draw them. The creators mentioned are Johnny Tay, John Chua, Xie Menggeng and Ms Jocelyn Yik.
The 'Pedia also gets dropped in the links column:
COMIXPEDIA is a useful collection of interviews, forums, links and reviews related to Web comics. It also contains tips for producing your own dot.comics.

After letting my links page languish for two years, I figure I owe it to you to give a more in-depth set of pointers than last time. Here are some notes on current trends and the cartoonists that are driving them.

Free Comic Book Day 2004 is tomorrow, July 3. Stop by your local shop to get free promotional editions of selected comics, including Keenspot and Keenspace samplers. It's all part of a desperate, last gasp attempt to lure normal humans into these funk dungeons.
If you can't make it to the event, try looking online. There might be a few free comics you can download on the Web.

What's the common theme?
Bunnies? Pop spoofs? Zoë? Slugs?
Freelancing? Nope. Fun.

Comixpedia recently reported the death of Selena Ulrich, AKA Kitsune, an avid fan of several webcomics and a promising cartoonist in her own right.
I realized that the picture that kept coming back to me was that of the character "Selena" named after her in Cool Cat Studio, and while that rendition pleased her, I was more interested in getting to know the real her.
Her own strip, C.Ulture Shocked, seemed a good place to start. I'd checked it out before, but not in a couple of years. The homepage still bears the mark of her last, hastily-dashed-off update, but she thoughtfully described the first couple of years' worth of material in her archive page, and if you only have time to read one, her last story, showcasing the disabled Carla pulling off a somewhat successful kidnapping, is a hoot. Prickly and megalomaniacal, Carla definitely feels like a part of the Kitsune that was. (Note: Later stories were drawn by Jo Wilson.)
She also leaves us a few Buffy fanfic. This one, proceeding from Season 3, is particularly sobering just now, as Buffy confronts friends' absences.

The Skatey-Eight comic isn't exactly genius, but it's not bad either. It's nice to see online comics making inroads among people who were too cool to talk to us in high school.

Their "Return to Sender" link is wrong. Oh well. They're young! For youth! They can make mistakes!

From the site:
Double Agent is a site where I can review webcomics, comment on trends and experiment with ideas and techniques. I've wanted to do this for a while. It was important that I keep it separate from my webcomic HER! - although my experiences doing that strip since 1998 and exclusively on the web since 2001 would definitely influence my views. That is why I decided to call this site Double Agent. I'm sort of playing both sides - creator and analyst.
