I built a "library" of webcomics and creators back in the fall of 2005 which I put into beta before realizing it was too much editorial work to deal with and the same information could be better provided through the community edited webcomic wiki - COMIXPEDIA.
Nevertheless looking back on the assortment of names collected (some from me, some sent in from you) I wonder if anyone has any significant updates on these creators 18 months later. Maybe we should interview some of them?
Trinoc*coN is an annual speculative fiction conference held in North Carolina and covers many aspects of the science fiction/fantasy genre including literature, art, comics, real science, gaming, costuming and much more.

We've got two more excellent Blind Date II comics for Friday!
- Our first comic for Friday is by Chris Chrysis (RPG-TV) and Neil Brideau (Sock-Monster). This one's really about the international trade in
his peniscoffee beans.
- Our second comic for Friday is by Ozark (Mind Flayed) and Lance Icarus (+1 Comics). Roleplaying taken inside-out and then some.
We're heading into the home stretch Blind Date II participants! Email me those finished comics by the end of this Sunday, February 25th! The list of creators still yet to report on their "blind date" after the jump (nudge nudge, know what I mean?):

Okay after a random drawing of names from a hat - here's your Blind Date II pairings. (Click read more to find out the pairings)
The rules are simple: the two of you brainstorm out and create a comic in the spirit of Valentines Day. Define "spirit of" however you want (we're not going to be as strict as the WCCA is with the Romantic Comics category).
We will start posting submissions on Valentines Day (February 14th) on a first-in, first-up basis and keep posting them as they come in through the month of February. I'd prefer to post the comics at frightnight.org to prevent future link-rot, but I can link to something posted elsewhere too. Either way email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com with the essential information. The absolute deadline for turning in Blind Date II comics will be February 25th.
Also try and link up with your partner early next week - if you have trouble getting connected or someone quits talk to me next week and we'll try to sort something else out for you.

It's been too long since 2004's Blind Date so let's do it again this year. We had some discussion over format for it and it was divided so let's do the original format again (I'll use the Border Walker idea for another event later this year). I've posted the archives of Blind Date 2004 at Frightnight.org if you want to check out the first edition.
The format is simple - by signing up you agree to work on a comic with a randomly selected partner (hence the "blind date" part ). The finished comic gets posted at Blind Date II during the week of February 19th.
You can sign-up for Blind Date II starting now through January 26th. Either email me at xerexes At comixpedia Dot coM or post a reply to this post. Include your name, your comic and whether you are an artist, writer or artist/writer (the only exception to the randomness will be that we will make sure not to pair up writer-writer or artist-artist).
We'll pair up partners and send out pairings around January 28th.
We'll being posting finished webcomics for the event the week of February 19th.
Please ask questions here as well so everyone can see the answers.
