Emelie Friberg and Mattias Thorelli are the creators of the relatively new webcomic What Birds Know. WBK concerns the adventures of three young women. That may not sound like much actually, but the art and writing are so sure-handed that readers can already sense they are reading something special. Most recently, Friberg and Thorelli entered their webcomic in the now suspended Webcomic Idol contest which brought them some additional exposure and praise. We interviewed them to find out a little more about the creators of this wonderful new comic and what's in store for What Birds Know.
In his hilarious comic, Wally & Osborne, Tyler Martin has been educating us about Antarctica in a delightful way. In this interview, Martin enlightens us about life, liberty, and the unlikelihood of polar bears at the South Pole.

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.

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.
Dave Wright's Todd and Penguin is filled with innocence and cynicism and so is he. We talked with the longtime webcomic creator about his comics, life and Keenspot.
Chris Shadoian used to do Streets of Northhampton for Modern Tales and now does the movie-oriented webcomic, Popcorn Picnic. In our interview we talk to Chris about movies, munchies, and making webcomics.
Tell me something that most people don't know about yourself.
Darryl Walker's and Adam Law's Press Start To Play mixes video games, a sarcastic parrot named Simon, and inebriated matrimony for a unique mix both surreal and addictive. Comixpedia's Al Schroeder talked with Walker and Law talked about PSTP's genesis, present and future.
Scott Ramsoomair's VG Cats is a gaming webcomic unlike any other. Where else would you find the adventures of a costumed adventurer named Pants Man or an alien face-hugger that enjoys that experience a little... too much.
Al Schroeder talks to Joe Dunn about his various webcomics including the popular Joe Loves Crappy Movies and his collaboration with Mitch Clem, The Coffee Achievers.
Theater Hopper has been entertaining us for years with its autobiographical yet satirical look at the lives of movegoers -- and the movies that obsess them. Comixpedia talked with creator Tom Brazelton about movies, webcomics, and the fans of both.
