Tyson Smith is a triple threat: illustrator by day, webcomic artist by night and filmmaker by the midnight hour. We may have gotten that wrong but this guy does make it seem like there are more than 24 hours in a day. Not only is he multi-media, but most recently in October he added the title of "dad" to his resume.
With its marvelously moody school setting and low-key heroine, Antimoney, Tom Siddell's Gunnerkrigg Court is a delightfully fun webcomic that still manages to pack in hints of danger and adventure. At last year's WCCAs, Gunnerkrigg Court was nominated for four awards and took home the WCCA Award for Best Newcomer. Even bigger for Siddell, however, may have been gaining noted author Neil Gaiman as a reader along with a mention on his well-read blog. We caught up with him on the edge of 2007 to see what's in store for the new year.
Al Schroeder talks with Gordon McAlpin, the creator of the webcomic Multiplex about movies, webcomics, and what’s playing at the theatres in heaven and hell. The webcomic Multiplex follows the employees at a movie theater with wit and style, and is a hit with webcomic and movie fans alike.
Tell us something about yourself that we don’t know. (I don’t think love of movies counts.)
Al Schroeder interviews Steven Charles Manales, the creator of Superslackers, the winner of last year's Ignatz award for webcomics.
Not your typical superhero saga, the offbeat Superslackers comic is filled with delightfully odd superheroes such as Invisible Right Leg Lad, Ghoulfriend and The Wafter.
