A great day at SPX this Sunday. Saw a whole bunch of familiar (web)comic artists (and bought some great stuff too) and met some new ones. I get overwhelmed trying to check out everything at SPX -- I don't think I'd cut it at San Diego. I guess it's 'cause I do try to check out as much of the work as possible. (I missed the Ignatz awards Satuday night but click here to find out about the winners. Apparently there was another dude in a gorilla suit this year just like last year. UPDATE: Yep - there's a moneky in THIS YEAR's presentation. h/t FLEEN).
Anyhow, I may have some reviews and interviews coming up leading out of today but for now I'm putting my new poster of the "Atheist's Afterlife" strip from Aaron Diaz's Dresden Codak up on the wall next to my A Lesson Is Learned But the Damage is Irreversible poster. I also picked up some books from Dirk Tiede, Spike, Meredith Gran, Josh Lesnick, Joe Dunn... jeez, really too many to list in one post. I'll get to them this week!
Also ran into the elusive Joey Manley (well he was up in the wilds of Maine for awhile... now he's apparently in the more hospitable land of Brooklyn) along with T Campbell. I think the gist of that conversation was that the new Comicspace.com is coming soon AND YET in some ways is already here. I should try harder to get an interview with him (although I have asked!), shouldn't I?
I also talked briefly with Raina Telgemeier about her new book with Scholastic - which will be a print version of her webcomic Smile. Raina thought a press release had gone out but I can't find it just now. Raina had done four Babysitters Club books with Scholastic, but she said that was it for the graphic novel series. I asked Raina about the experience and she was extremely positive on it, noting she had done about 800 pages on the series. Best wishes for the Smile project and I'll post more details when I get them.

This year at comic-con I made two purchases on spec, as they say. Most of my Comic-Con purchases are from creators whose content I am familiar with. However, I also make a couple of purchases where I don't know exactly what to expect, either on a recommendation or because they look interesting.

Chicago, August 29th 2006 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Dirk Tiede announces the completion of the artwork for Part Two: Agitation, the second volume of his series Paradigm Shift. This follows on the heels of moving the series to Modern TalesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ free section, the Strip Lounge, where the strip can be read in full without paying a subscription fee. He is now working to collect Part Two into a new printed edition and taking pre-orders for the book, which is expected to ship in September.

The next Odd Jobs graphic novel, Children of the Revolution, is set to begin at the same time that the new Moderntales debuts. It will be free -- out from behind the subscription wall.
Detective, suspense, parlor game, crime, noir, police proceduralâ€¦ these are all different ways to slice the mystery genre. But how to organize the Mystery WEBCOMICS? Alphabetically by title? By author? By sub-genre? Or perhaps semi-randomly, as the whim takes me? Yep. That'll do.

I'm looking for any mystery webcomics (including ones that cross-over into other genres, like the supernatural) online.
Just the title and link are fine, I can take it from there. Any further data you'd like to include would be appreciated, of course.

Lost & Found Investigations by Matt Milligan

The Spider Cliff Mysteries
Christopher Mill's SUPERNATURAL CRIME
Basil Flint, P.I. by John Troutman
"Will Eisner's JOHN LAW" by Gary Chaloner over on Modern Tales:
The Dada Detective
Private Eye Butterfly
Kelly J. Cooper
"What's your favorite webcomics romance?"
T Campbell asked this question of many webcartoonists. The answers were revealing.
