Man, in years ComixTalk is like a tween now... OMG!
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...)
A great thread on how much to spend on making a webcomic -- how times have changed (or not) since then!
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.

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.

We've got a new cover for July from Dave Wright, creator of Todd and Penguin and a new column from Derik Badman reviewing the short webcomic The Lady's Murder.
Pop Culture Zoo interviews David Malki! of Wondermark. I sometimes forget that Wondermark appears in The Onion as well as the web.

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.

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.
- krysilis was seeking an artist for a comics project. Did s/he find one? Only the Intertubes know...
- Crying Macho Man plugged his latest comic "FOXY".
- DAJB plugged the latest developments in his comic Shades.
- Oren launched a new webcomic (still going!) called Mini Cactuses Starring Ned the Chainsaw Guy.
- Jason Salsbury was looking for a new artist for his webcomic Pet Professional. This wasn't the first or the last artist on the comic. Eventually Salsbury turned to Chad Diez to do the art on the comic - but Diez eventually dropped out in early 2007 (for the scoop on that check out the DS interview with Diez here). It looks like Pet Professional is on hiatus now.
- Julia Wertz launched her journal webcomic The Fart Party.
- Dave Wright, and several webcomic creators banded together to create The Biggest Loser website which chronicled their attempt to lose weight and raise some money for UNICEF in the process. It looks like this project is dead, dead, dead as the website URL has expired.
- Ping Teo looked at the "essence of" the webcomic GPF.
- Eric Burns reviewed the webcomic Goats.
- Al Schroeder interviewed Kris Straub during his Checkerboard Nightmare days.
- absolutely nothing!
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.

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.
- Man Man, the saga of a man with all the powers of the average man (because he was bitten by a radioactive man, natch) will hit 1000 strips this May 18th.
- The Damn Good Comics blog reviews Zap!. (The blog is a good source of webcomic reviews: past ones include The Wings of Change, RÃªveillerie, and Indavo.)

- 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?
