Three and a half months after ending the long-running comic Wigu, Jeffrey Rowland has suddenly returned to Wigu, and is once again making comics about the Tinkle family, starring the young, cartoon-obsessed Wigu Tinkle.

There was a spot of trouble this morning with the site but it should be resolved now. I think it was due to an external feed Comixpedia was using for webcomic updates (I've since turned that back off).
Also just as an experiment, I've added a box showing the most recent updates from Talkaboutcomics (which features updates from creators on the Modern Tales websites). If you have a suggestion for a similar feature to add feel free to email us.
Hey now - how about some webcomic news? Read on fair readers...

Well week 4 of the January issue is up. That marks 24 full issues of Comixpedia. I think I can speak for all editors and contributors, past and present: "Man, I'm tired."
Week 4 gives you a column from the Damonkey Man, interviews with both Jeff "WIGU TV" Rowland and the creators of Least I Could Do and finally, a review of Bigger Than Cheeses by Desmond Seah.
February's issue takes a look outside the cozy confines of the panel to hunt down the elusive experimental webcomic. Assuming the Internet doesn't get snowed in, we'll bring you the first week of the February issue on February 7th.
Jeff Rowland is a serial webcomic creator. His first work was the old school When I Grow Up, his second the popular and well-received WIGU and his most recent work includes a journal comic called Overcompensating and a new webcomic called WIGU TV.
Read on for nine questions with Jeff Rowland. Why only nine? Because The Man wouldn't let Rowland have ten questions.

For week 3, Eric Burns reviews Goats and Al Schroeder talks with Kristopher Straub and Chex of Checkerboard Nightmare. Concentrated funny right there!
We also have a tutorial on the basics of drawing, scanning and saving from Chris "Frodo" Furniss.
Finally, we've got the first installment of a new column from Ping Teo called "Essence of". I'm excited about this because (okay I'm excited about all things Comixpedia) Ping's column will be in the form of a comic.
Thanks for submitting your questions for Jeff Rowland - they are now in route (or soon will be) to Jeff through the internets. We await his answers.

For January 2005, we present the FUNNY Issue, a serious look at humor in webcomics featuring a cover from Chris Crosby in the super Superosity style. Leading us off is a discussion of the funny with some creators who make us laugh on a regular basis: John Troutman, Randy Milholland, Maritza Campos, David Wright, Brad Guigar and Ryan North. We also have a review of Jeph Jacques' Questionable Content and an interview with Tauhid Bondia, creator of Spells & Whistles. This month is also the debut of a new column, Through the Looking Back Glass, by Erik Melander. Every month, Erik will take a look back at the most recent webcomic news and connect the dots between the events of the day.
Jeff Rowland is the community interviewee this month - be sure to ask him something about his new project and his continuing diary comic, Overcompensating as well as his association with the Dumbrella conspiracy.

Jeff Rowland is the creator of not one but two of the most beloved webcomics, When I Grow Up and WIGU. He also does the regularly updated journal comic Over Compensated and has made noises about starting another daily webcomic now that he has finished with WIGU.
All that and he's part of the Dumbrella crew as well. Post your questions for Rowland, one to a post and we'll send the top ten moderated questions on for answers. We'll take questions until January 21st.
