Am I missing something? Why are these comics causing so many heated reactions right now? Are comics becoming more powerful? Are they touching more of a nerve then normal? Or is this just a sign of the heated opinions of people over current issues? Could this mean that more censorship may be heading our way?
Who gets to write about webcomics?

Saw this on the WebcomicsList - webcomic content for mobile phones from a company called Funkimobile. The list includes Little Gamers, Girl vs. Pig, Diesel Sweeties, BoxJam's Doodle.

Part of the new publishing platform I'll be rolling out for the new Comixpedia site makes it a lot easier to publish the monthly magazine. Now all contributors will have one biography attached to all stories they write for us. This makes it easier for us (no need to retype each time a new story is published) and better for the contributor (no matter when someone reads a story they see your current biography).
If you've contributed to Comixpedia and want to submit a new bio go ahead and email me. Also, all contributors may now have a 100 x 100 pixel image to go with their stories. If you want to submit one, include it on an email to me.
I just finished loading in all of the stories published in 2003. Click read more for a list of contributors from that year. (One of the nice new features will be the ability to easily see all of the articles each contributor has written for Comixpedia.)

Here's a link I missed during last month's focus on webcomics-to-print: Creative Comix is a small syndication company focused on the alternative press market. They have quite a few webcomics on their roster of clients including: BoxJam's Doodle, Soap on a Rope, Gluemeat, Lost in Appleton, Innies and Outties, Tex & Jenny, You Damn Kid, and HOUSD.
UPDATE: In the comments Rob Balder notes that the Creative Comix contract may not have the most creator-friendly terms.

Here's an assortment of going on's for Friday:
I thought these cell phone trailers before the movies were old hat by now, but this PvP is still a funny one.
Last is a webcomic from James Burns called Detached which is a true to life story of Burn's brush with blindness from a detached retina during a busy time in his life. I'm not sure I've made that sound as interesting as it actually is, but this is an authentically engaging piece of journal webcomicing worth a read.

I really don't know whether to laugh or cry :( ... though it is making me nervous ... Schlock Mercenary, ShortPacked, MelonPool, Crazy Larry and ( if it not a joke ) CheckerBoard Nightmare...

Furthering the disintegration of the former Von-Trapp Family like-harmony of the wholesome, family-friendly Altbrand, the Midwest Coast/Not-East Coast feud between BoxJam and Case Yorke continues with the latest salvo coming today from Yorke.
In non-feud Gluemeat news, Yorke will post the 500th installment of his webcomic this Wednesday.

The webcomics community seems a little bigger these days then oh say 2001 or so. One thing from those earlier days that I just realized is still around is BoxJam's Award.
