Weekend Update

Don't forget to check out Fright Night 8 this Tuesday when we'll post all of the remixed-for-Halloween webcomics.

I want to make sure everyone knows we're allowing folks to comment without registering and/or logging in to see if it increases participation in comment threads. We're also looking for input on what feature stories we should be working on.

Contributors to Comixpedia

We've had many contributors to Comixpedia over the years - here's a full list through the end of 2005:

News-O-Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong-The-Witch-Is-Dead

I liked Tweep, Philip likes A Softer World and Gilead likes No Room For Bushido.

Drawn! blog points out that Dylan Meconis has posted drawings of the entire Battlestar Galatica cast, drawn as if they were on The Simpsons.  And coincidently Fleen just wrote about Meconis' latest webcomic Family Man.

Watch Adam Hughes draw.  Nice video. 

New webcomics collective emerging: Gangbunch which includes Tauhid and several others.

Notwebcomics dept: a video of Kochalka's Monkey Vs Robot.

Dylan Meconis is back! Wish Bill Mudron was, too!

I'm posting this as a fan, not as a publisher.

Dylan Meconis is one of the most interesting webcartoonists working today. Her first longform serial, Bite Me, has won praise from such worthies as Neil Gaiman and Scott McCloud. Back in the day, everybody was following Dylan. As often happens with graphic-novel-style webcomics, though, once she finished the work, and took a break, people moved on. It's more difficult to carry a vast audience if you're not doing daily gag-a-days. (I'm not griping, whining, or complaining -- I'm just saying). It's the way of the world. Nothing you can do about it. But anyway. That's why fans of Dylan's, like me, owe it to themselves to spread the word when she starts something new:

Three Years of Comixpedia

A little love letter to the magazine that could.It's the third anniversary of Comixpedia this issue.

2006 is the fourth year we've been writing about webcomics. We've put out 38 monthly issues of the magazine and published more than 600 reviews, interviews and other articles about webcomics. We've posted more than 2500 news posts (that's not counting the magazine).

Rebooting Comixpedia, Part 3: Contributor Bios and Images

Part of the new publishing platform I'll be rolling out for the new Comixpedia site makes it a lot easier to publish the monthly magazine. Now all contributors will have one biography attached to all stories they write for us. This makes it easier for us (no need to retype each time a new story is published) and better for the contributor (no matter when someone reads a story they see your current biography).

If you've contributed to Comixpedia and want to submit a new bio go ahead and email me. Also, all contributors may now have a 100 x 100 pixel image to go with their stories. If you want to submit one, include it on an email to me.

I just finished loading in all of the stories published in 2003. Click read more for a list of contributors from that year. (One of the nice new features will be the ability to easily see all of the articles each contributor has written for Comixpedia.)
