Cartoonist and commentator Ted Rall is turning his attention to webcomics in his third Attitude anthology, due out in June 2006. Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists will feature the work of twenty-one cartoonists publishing their work over the internet.
Many MANY of our webcomicking friends have published print versions of their work. I've tried to find, track down, and remember as many as possible. But given the thousands (tens of thousands?) of webcomics out there, this was a daunting task. If I missed your comic, I apologize profusely and profoundly. Please add it via a comment.

The Living Comic is chock full of short entries on webcomics. It's a little like Eric Burns' Websnark, but there are enough webcomics to go around for a few more snarksters. Granoff's (aka Occultatio) latest post covers one of my favorite artists, D.C. Simpson and while I don't agree with it 100%, it is an interesting take on Simpson's political webcomic, I Drew This.

There are a bunch of comics I read in bunches but there are also comics I keep up with everyday. Of those everyday reads I always seem to gravitate to reading my current favorite first. What's the first comic you check each morning?
Right now, for me it's Questionable Content (with Wapsi Square a close second).

I've always liked the idea of using different fonts for different characters (as long as the fonts are readable and aren't too outrageous). I always felt that it adds a personality and a kind of 'voice' to the character to have them 'speak' in a slightly different font. Now I've also heard people say that they're not fond of that style. So, just wondering, is there any distinct opinions on this? Or do most people just not care either way?
My comic, by the way is http://18.104.22.168/Casting%20Shadows/ just so those who have no idea what I mean can see.,
David (D.C.) Simpson has been doing gentle, ironic humor, poking fun at all sorts of difficult issues, political or not, in Ozy and Millie and has been doing more overt political commentary in I Drew This. Al Schroeder talked with David Simpson about webcomics, syndication and politics.
You're not shy about tackling politics, in a low-key, ironic way in Ozy and Millie, more overtly in I Drew This. You tackle other hard issues, too, like a character suspecting we're mortal and alone in a harsh, godless universe (but marischino cherries make it better). Do you get much hate mail?

D.C. Simpson has made a t-shirt out of the George W. Brown half of this month's Comixpedia cover - you can get it from him now.
Dang, I knew we should've gotten merchandising rights for it! :)
Feeding Snarky on Pitfalls amidst Pratfalls
So this month here at the ol' 'Pedia we're supposed to talk about Politics. I'd note, by the way, that nine out of ten of our readers (a statistic I have generated through the "out of my butt" method) are so utterly sick of politics that they're angrier now than they were when Comixpedia featured a woman having sex with an iMac as the cover art. Why angrier? Because a certain percentage of the people who decried the iMac-humping-art secretly described it as "funny" or "pretty hot," but absolutely none of those people describe Politics in 2004 as anything but "a miasma of horror and despair the likes of which we haven't seen since the Great Depression, (which was so-named because we had no Paxil back then) and they get furious the moment the site loads right now. "I don't read webcomics for politics," they scream. "I read webcomics to get away from politics!"
Well, my own political opinions aside (you guys couldn't care less, and you've heard it all before, and if after the last four years you don't agree with me, there's nothing on Earth I could say now that would cause you to do so), I'm intrigued by the metaquestion raised by the topic. "Politics in Webcomics" is less about what individual webcomics espouse and more about how political content -- or more broadly, topical content -- can be slid into a webcomic effectively.
