- Shaenon Garrity may not agree with me that Chris Muir's recent Day By Day comic is offensive but in her blog she entertainingly lays out the argument for why it is "the worst damn comic in the world"!
- The Silent Penultimate Panel Watch (a pretty funny concept for a blog actually) steps aside from its normal fare of spotting silent comic panels to pitch an all webcomics-in-print alt-alt paper idea. I've heard this idea before but I've never heard rumblings of anyone actually running with it. In a way, however, the parody news newspaper The Onion is, as it expands its paper edition into new markets.

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.

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.

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:
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).

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.)
