Panels & Pictures: The Pleasures of the Comics

In this month's column Derik A Badman discusses the seven pleasures that keep him reading a comic.

COMICON 2008 .... in which I bought things that were cool

Alright, now for the What I Got At Comicon post, with helpful links so you too can get what I got and become one of the beautiful people. Yes indeedy. The post all turned out to be horribly long, so I've put it behind a LJ cut.

COMICON 2008 ... in which I was there and saw things and it was awesome

Here we go, the Comicon Report. Lets see if I can wrap this up in under three million words.

The End of the Year is Coming

The end of the year is coming and I'm working on getting in place articles for the site for December. One thing we've done for a few years running now that I'm trying to set up again is a roundtable discussion of the year that was. Participants in past roundtables have been mainly bloggers and journalists writing about (web)comics although there's no hard and fast rules about it. If anyone has any suggestions on commentators to invite to participate (I'm always interested in adding new voices to the mix for these roundtable articles) post a comment here.

Another thing we've done annually is our annual People Of Webcomics article listing the top 25 contributors to webcomics during the past year. We'll have another edition of that next month. I'm looking for as broad as input as possible and webcomics is a tremendously wide field to cover. If you have ideas about who has contributed significantly to webcomics in 2007 post a comment here with the name and some discussion of what merits their recognition. The point of the list is not really to be an "award" but a way to talk about the exciting developments of the last year and put a spotlight on the people involved with them. Check out past editions of the list to see who we've included previously (and why): 2006; 2005; and 2004.

Sin Titulo

Sin Tutulo by Cameron Stewart is a recent webcomic (only 8 pages so far) by an artist better known for his print comics (such as working with Grant Morrison). A "professional" doing a webcomic is something we see more and more of as time passes. A chance to write own's on story? Freedom?

Canadian Webcomic Collective: Transmission X
