Scott Adams picks Justin Thompson to be the new artist for
his Mike Belkin's syndicated comic strip Unfit.
Adams writes: "The decision was Mike's alone, but I would have made the same choice." Given that many suspect Belkins is just a pseudonym for Adams I guess that's not surprising.
Between the two of them Terrence Marks and Isabel Marks have done a whole lot of webcomicking.Terrence Marks is responsible for writing the early anthropomorphic tale, Unlike Minerva (which is now concluded). UM is cool for among other reasons, for being one of the first webcomics with a single writer and a rotating crew of artists. In fact, Terrence notes on the UM website that he first encountered Isabel when she emailed him in September of 2000, "offering to draw [Unlike Minerva]." It wasn't until almost a year later he adds that they were "properly introduced."
Terrence is also the founder of The Nice, an online network for webtoonists and he organized the first April Fools' Comic Swap and Fright Night webcomic events. And as if he wasn't busy enough, for the past five years, Terrence has also done the coloring for Bill Holbrook's Kevin & Kell.
More horrible than Hagar, greedier than the King of Id, Ian McDonald's Bruno the Barbarian has been storming the gates of webcomicdom for more than seven years now.Blending high Robert E. Howard style fantasy with cartoonish comedy, Ian McDonald began his long-running webcomic Bruno the Bandit in 1998.

You may have noticed that clip-art comic strip PartiallyClips has been experimenting with guest art from other webcomics creators for more than two months now. The latest entry takes it further, with an actual crossover appearance by main characters from Sluggy Freelance. Pete Abrams supplied the art, drawn during the webcomics panel at UberCon, and Rob Balder wrote the dialogue for Pete's characters Torg and Riff.

When would we see publishers, creators, artists & writers from the print comics world dominated by DC & Marvel migrate to the Internet to do webcomics? When will see these professionals take advantage of the Internet and create great stories online?
And meanwhile, should we usher in auteurs like Gary Larson, Bill Watterson, Berkely Breathed, Frank Miller and Grant Morrison to do their finest work online?
Many MANY of our webcomicking friends have published print versions of their work. I've tried to find, track down, and remember as many as possible. But given the thousands (tens of thousands?) of webcomics out there, this was a daunting task. If I missed your comic, I apologize profusely and profoundly. Please add it via a comment.
Isabel Marks is the mastermind behind Namir Deiter, a daily webcomic that focuses on the lives of a band of young animals through high school and beyond. Marks has updated Namir Deiter for six years running. Comixpedia caught up to Marks at her locker after classes.
Bill Holbrook is the creator of Kevin and Kell, one of the most long-running and delightful webcomics around. In addition, he is also the creator of two additional daily strips, On the Fast Track and Safe Havens which are syndicated to newspapers around the country. Luckily for us, he found time to answer ten questions from the Comixpedia community.
