Comix Talk for Friday, April 15, 2011

New Webcomics

John Kovaleski has a funny new webcomic called Dadding Badly.  It's an autobiographical comic from a new dad and so far pretty funny stuff.

MetaFilter linked to a really cute sketch blog titled Zoopreme Court.  Dan Schofield and Alice DuBois enjoy animals, justice and puns and plan to illustrate all 112 justices of the Supreme Court, as well as some landmark cases.  Their Otter Stewart reminds me a bit of my Perry Otter – otters are just kind of fun to draw!

Good Causes

It's been awhile since I linked to the Team Cul de Sac blog which is raising money for the Fox Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. Non-cartoonists who want to support Team Cul de Sac, can contribute money directly online to the Fox Foundation's website for Team Cul de Sac.  The project will result in a book from Andrews McMeel Publishing.  I don't know if they are still looking for more cartoonists to donate original art to the project but the deadline posted is May 15th.  The theme of the book is other artists' take on Richard Thompson's Cul de Sac characters. More details are available at the Fox Foundation page for the project.

Lost Causes (?)

Did I miss a press release or something? The ComicSpace website looks like it was bought by a discount merchandise company from Thailand.


Xaviar Xerexes

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.
