Let’s lead off with a picture, shall we?

UPDATE: Rick Marshall interviews David Willis of Shortpacked!
Joey Comeau from A Softer World interviewed Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics -- sort of like webcomics own version of Interview magazine.
Daniel Whiston has an interview with Alan Moore on writing that is awesomesauce. (also h/t to Journalista!)
AROUND THE WORLD IN A BLOG
FLEEN points to a strange website called mezzacotta that apparently Irregular Webcomic creator David Morgan-Mar has something to do with. Funny, cryptic or what: the website states that the asking price for the URL and the "idea" is €1 million prior to launch and €5 million afterwards.
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
A few folks pointing to Capes and Babes a comic about comic book culture. A topic ripe for tackling (I like SubCulture which also hits this subject) and if anyone else has some sugested comics in this area fire away. (Thanks)
Anyone been reading My Life In A Cube? Funny autobiographical (?) stuff from about first job (thereabouts) working in a cube farm.
ALSO - Melonpool creator STEVE TROOP has a new comic called CryptoZooey! He plugged it here last week but I don't think a lot of folks saw it over the weekend. Full press release for the new strip -- click "read more"

Well for me at least -- I am already loving the Malcolm Gladwell/New Yorker storyline in Scary Go Round that starts here.
While I'm pointing out cool comics from today -- David Willis adds another notch to his belt-of-comic-parodies with this scary hard-to-tell-it's-a-parody Mallard Fillmore.
In this review, El Santo takes a look at Sarah Ellerton's The Phoenix Requiem, a beautifully illustrated tale set in 19th Century England about a mysterious stranger who stumbles into an idyllic village.

Fleen points out a new "make-a-comic" tool online called Bitstrips. Putting aside for a minute any judgment on the quality of tools on the site, I want to flag for everyone that its owners are a mite bit greedy, claiming "joint ownership" (those are magic copyright law words my friends) of anything created on the site:
I've known T Campbell for a number of years now and we used to kid that he's the hardest working man in webcomics but there's definitely a kernal of truth to that. This guy writes a lot of webcomics and than he goes out and writes about webcomics as well. And although he's no longer local to my neck of Virginia and no longer writes for ComixTALK I thought it would make a good interview to catch up with him as we barrel on into 2008.
If you haven't run into T before, well, his webcomic projects include Fans, Penny and Aggie, Search Engine Funnies, Rip and Teri, and Cool Cat Studio. He's got another one out just now called Sketchies (with co-writer Phil Kahn and art ist Ryan Estrada). He wrote for ComixTALK before writing for other sites as well as turning his History of Online Comics series into a book. He also spent a number of years editing the action webcomic anthology site Graphic Smash.
Larry "El Santo" Cruz takes a look at Aaron Diaz's too-surreal-for-you webcomic, Dresden Codak.
