This Day in ComixTalk: November 24th

Man, in years ComixTalk is like a tween now... OMG!

2008
We had an interview with Evan Nichols of the webcomic Dr. Eldritch.  Plus, wow! Jon Morris' comic,  Star Wars Versus The Batman.  And Bomb Shelter's Webcomic Idol contest was down to the final three.  (Doesn't look like Webcomic Idol is happening this year...)

2007
Von Allan's The Road To God Knows began its serialization over at Girlamatic.

2006
Scott McCloud's Making Comics was making the rounds; Neil Babra drew an awesome turkey; and another installment in the Most Read Webcomics Measurement Project.

2005
Nada!!!

2004
A great thread on how much to spend on making a webcomic -- how times have changed (or not) since then!

2003
Dave Wright's Todd and Penguin hits it's third anniversary milestone; an interview with Brad Hawkins and a review of his webcomic Monkey Law; and Dylan Meconis wrote a column on webcomic creator burnout.

The Return of Todd & Penguin

Dave Wright's Todd and Penguin is back from an unannounced semi-hiatus with a special mystery guest artist penning new strips for the next month. The comic, which returned last week is kicking things off with a contest. The first eight people to guess who the mystery artist is and email the strip’s creator, David Wright (email link found at website), will get a free autographed original comic drawn by the mystery artist.

Guest Art Golazzo!

James Turner picked a guest artist for his webcomic Beaver & Steve today.  It was fun to see all of the various interpretations of Turner's script.  There were a lot of good entries -- some of my favorites didn't even merit runner-up status for Turner, including entries from Danny Burleson, Dave Wright, Jean Thebe, and Scott Wright.  If it had been up to me I would have picked Drew Mokris' entry as the winner but Turner's choice from Dan Woodhouse is pretty cool too.  (Pictured at right is my entry which, deservedly, DID not win.)

The other guest art event going on is Scary Go Round's Feats Of Strength.  Creator John Allison wrote earlier this week that he "had some very creative and inventive entries but don't feel that this thing has been won yet by any means."  I did a comic for this, but I felt like I rushed parts of it.  

Back, Back, Waaay Back!

It's snapshot of the ComixTalk archives time again. Here's a look back at what we were writing about on January 24th in years past.

Catching Up With Lee Adam Herold

There's an incredible wealth of articles in the ComixTalk archives: features and columns on craft, theory and business, insightful reviews and interviews with some of the most interesting folks in webcomics. We'll be taking a regular look back at past issues and catching up with creators we've previously covered.

Be sure to refresh your browser to see our brand new cover from the talented Gisele Lagace, currently handling art on the webcomic Penny & Aggie. May is our "all ages" issue and we should have a number of reviews of all ages webcomics this month. Our weekend update, however, includes a review of a decidedly not-all ages webcomic, Journey to Mt. Moriah which officially wraps up our April issue and to kick off the May issue, a new piece from Joel Fagin titled Reinventing Micropayments.

NOT WEBCOMICS

  • I saw Hot Fuzz last Friday (funny! if not quite as good as Shaun of the Dead). Spidey 3 made a HUGE amount of money despite mixed buzz. Not sure when I'll see it though... What movies are you definitely planning on seeing this summer?
