D.J. Coffman received news from Platinum Studios that he's a semi-finalist in the Comic Book Challenge contest going on next week at the San Diego Comicon. (Here's an earlier posting on the contest.)
Unfortunately for DJ, he wasn't going to Comicon until he heard the news and there isn't a hotel room to be found in San Diego... So he's looking for a floor to crash on (and he's willing to pay for that floor!) if anyone has some space they can spare.

I'd also like to thank this week's guest bloggers: Reinder Dijkhuis and Michael Rouse-Deane. Reinder had some server troubles of his own yesterday but it looks like it's all fixed up now. Be sure to check out his webcomic, Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan and blog for more Reinder. You can also keep up with Michael's regular blogging about webcomics at his blog Webcomics In Print.
update: I forgot to mention Michael is giving away a bunch of D.J. Coffman's Yirmumah books in a contest.Ã‚ Deadline to enter is July 15th.Ã‚ I did!
Next week's guest blogger will be Iain Hamp, a former Comixpedia columnist, and a long-time webcomics creator and commentator.

From a quick glance at the list I've bolded those I'm immediately familar with. That's 17 creators that I am not sure I've read before. I don't know if that's because they're not that popular, or that good or rather just as likely - more evidence that there are more interesting webcomics out there than anyone can ever possibly write about.

I'm taking some inspiration from D.J. Coffman and Yirmumah to declare this Saturday International Burt Reynolds Day and urge everyone worldwide to include a cameo of Burt Reynolds (mustache or no mustache) in your webcomic (or on your webcomic website) this Saturday.
Do it for Burt! Do it for webcomics!
If you do it, let me know ahead of time or afterwards by replying here or emailing me and I'll post a list on the site for people to check 'em out.
Don't give up out there. Every webcomic started somewhere. A perspective on webcomic evolution from David Wright, the creator of Todd and Penguin.Your comic is not as good as you think it is.
No, I'm not talking to the handful of awesomely talented newcomers that seem to crop up each year, nor the proven vets -- you know who you are. I'm talking to the others. Those who are plugging along at a bad comic but just don't realize it. Your comic is not as good as you think it is. Take it from someone who knows.

I don't do this often enough, but I really am grateful to everyone who advertises with Comixpedia - because of them we've been able to cover hosting costs and shell out some cash to our contributors.
Our current advertisers include the webcomics Kitty Litter, Front Beat, Misfit's Journey, Framed: North Carolina, Astronaut Elementary and Onezumi.com - their site not only features their webcomics but some really great forums - check them out after the Comixpedia forums :)
And our latest advertiser is D.J. Coffman, who has a new monthly Yirmumah! comic book coming out.
Be sure to check them all out!

It's not what you think - a bunch of webcomic creators have gotten together to lose weight and raise some money for UNICEF in the process. One of the players, D.J. Coffman, posted a pretty funny on-topic Yirmumah this morning.
