I Drew This is DC Simpson's new politically-minded webcomic. Simpson is slated to be the cover artist for next month's Comixpedia issue.
With the whole world watching the last month of the campaign for the next US president, we figured it might be a good time to present The Politics Issue.
For all the recent growing hubbub about webcomics and their place in the Serious Art World, sometimes it's nice to be able to forget about striving for "award-winning" quality or mindboggling innovation. Rather than study and dissect the Professional Aspirants out there, sometimes you just want to enjoy a nice, simple laugh.
Admit it â€“ it's nice to be able to go read a webcomic that may not be breaking new ground or showcasing Alex Ross-ian art, but that is just FUN, right?
It's that sinful little sugary snack you sneak in your mouth when you think no one is looking at you in the study hall. Not at all on your list of healthy diet brain foods, it's yummy and delicious and exactly what you want, even if not what you think you know you need.
Here is a PREview trio of such FUN new webcomic reads; they may not drastically change your worldview or bring about earthshattering enlightenment, but they may be good for a nice 'n' easy distracting chuckle.

It just started this year - sometimes funny, probably much more enjoyable if you agree with Simpson than not.

I was reminded again today of the wonderful service provided by Comics By Email. Comics By Email delivers webcomics by email to readers who sign up for the service. Any creator can sign up with Comics By Email and have their webcomic delivered by email. There are currently a number of great webcomics available through the service including: Algernon's Dilemma, Alien Dice, Bottle Rocket, Freefall, Funny Farm, Innies and Outies, Newshounds, Pewfell Porfingles, and lots more.
David Anez has been messing with pixels before messing with pixels became cool. His landmark Sprite-based comic, Bob and George, actually wasn't even supposed to BE a comic about a hero and cast of characters awfully similar to a certain Capcom game. It inadvertently became one of the first Sprite webcomics on the web, and certainly the first one to really pioneer and spark the masses of Sprite comics out there now. Almost four years after this "accidental" genesis, Anez tells us about how it all started, and why his webcomic is exactly what it is.
