Jillyfoo (Demon Eater) and Nate (Jazz and Jess) joins Fes, Tanya, and Mark to discuss Self-Insertion, Mary Sues, Canon Sues, and Anti-Sues. Some debate rages on about what characters may fall prey to which category, as well as bringing up the flaws in writing things as such. We also put a bit of hate into Twilight… because it’s so deserving of our disrespect.

Becky (Sailor Ranko), Thom (910 CMX), and Ben (Hero Academy) join Fes for a late-night discussion. We clear the air with some drama stirred up in episode 102, and then move on to discuss a bit more about fan fiction. We also talk about the creation of the 910 CMX Community.

R. C. Monroe (Out There) joins Fes, Tanya, and Mark to talk about… stuff! We start with discussing R. C.’s ridiculously long buffer, cartooning style, and professionalism. From there we move on from there into a enjoyable assorted conversation!

It’s finally gotten bitterly cold here in the northeast, which is seemingly just as good as a sunny summer afternoon for reading comics. Who knew?
- Luprand reviewed Finder’s Keepers and mpd57 looked at One Hit Knockout, Jason and The Argonauts, Goop Jr., Subsuelo and Unseen Tribe. Pigs of the Industry praised Jason and the Argonauts and Webcomics Critique thought Bonejangles maybe has some potential. Paperless Comics pointed us toward reviews of Copper, Love and Capes and Pajama Forest.
- Madinkbeard questioned Tokyopop’s rating in his review of Aria Volume 5, covered A Drifting Life, Ooku: The Inner Chambers and one more for every day of December. Optical Sloth covered Rock That Never Sleeps and The Airy Tales and Ghost Jar along with various comics by Pat Aulisio and Kris Lachowski.
- Rosscott gives us a few good comic picks that he liked and Paperless Comics shared this (exciting to me) trend about Manga News and Commander X. Ben Towle continues his Cristo project and Precocious pointed us to CrebHeads and Sometime Alone.
- I was hoping this Webcomic List thread about reader pet theories would generate some further interesting comments but it seems to have stalled out. To make up for it, there is a very interesting discussion on how different artists script out their comics.
It's the end of the year and what better time to talk webcomics with a great group of interesting creators and commentators. For this year's roundtable we talked about favorite and new webcomics from 2009; iPhones and iTablets; developments in the business of comics; developments in the subject matter of comics; webcomic awards; and predictions for 2010! I'm joined by Gary Tyrrell, Delos Woodruff, Shaenon Garrity, Fesworks, Derik Badman, Larry Cruz, Brigid Alverson and Johanna Draper Carlson.
