Rob Balder has been delighting webcomics readers, readers of independent newspapers, convention-goers, and booklovers for several years now with his Partially Clips. He paused long enough in a busy schedule to answer ten questions at some length – with his observations on the current state and future of webcomics, of his trials and tribulations in book publishing, and what started him on this path... and his plans for the future.

A last reminder about WCA2003...
May 5th and our third annual WCA is less than two weeks away.
We currently have more than 60 web cartoonists signed on to do a special contribution strip for that day, as well as about a dozen others who are tenatively considering a WCA2003 strip (circumstances permitting).
Howard Tayler has mentioned that "The Pulse" is supposed to cover the event. Mark Mekkes has mentioned that he's going to plug the event during a local radio interview in Florida next week.
The current list of participants spans a full range of online comics. We have several members from Keenspot, Keenspace, Modern Tales, The Nice, and a lot of independents who aren't affiliated with any particular group (or groups). There are a few dozen return participants from previous years (many 3-time participants) as well as a lot of newcomers (our most newcomers ever).
For those of you who've said you'd like to participate, but haven't yet sent me the URL for your WCA2003 page, please do so as soon as possible.
