Dicebox isn't your older brother's science fiction comic. No muscular heroes toting huge laser cannons, piloting light-speed-capable spaceships, rescuing buxom and scantily clad females, thwarting evil empires, and, in general, saving the universe.

"In webcomics, I'm currently working my way through the Modern Tales lineup in alphabetical order. Most of them I read all the way through, though a few of them just don't interest me at all. Just got through No Stereotypes. I also regularly read a few standbys: Sluggy Freelance, PVP, CRFH, GPF, It's Walky, Clan of the Cats, Gaming Guardians. And of course, everything on Graphic Smash.
"In printed comics, I'm sticking with Strangers in Paradise for a little while longer at least, now that Terry's finally getting around to some of the stories I wanted him to write three years ago. Mark Waid just 0wn0rs Fantastic Four. The fanboy in me craves it, along with JLA/Avengers and a lot of Brian Michael Bendis' work.
"Textwise, I just got through Chris Sherman's The Invisible Web and a book of Harlan Ellison short stories, and I'm reading a whole lotta blogs, 'cause all the cool people are writing them these days. Only half kidding: they have a perspective that I miss from my college years.
"What's next? I want to finish off Preacher (yes, I know the series wrapped years ago) and pick up Cory Doctorow's new collection... I've read a couple of his short stories and he's an author to watch. Webcomics-wise, I'll keep working my way down the alphabet with Modern Tales, then start on one of the other collectives... probably Keenspot or Girlamatic.
"Yeah, I'm serious, I really do read all this stuff. Scary, huh?"

I certainly have my own must have artists for future issues of comixpedia, but who would you like to see?

Hello. I wandered over here due to the frightnight thing, and I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Ben, and I draw comics. Um. That doesn't really make me special around these parts. Specifically, I do a comic about cooking. And the apocalypse. Mainly cooking. Or it will be about cooking anyway. At some point in the future.
Also I draw and encourage others to draw 1-hour comics. Which are basically comics drawn in an hour. (You can see all the ones I have drawn on my archives page. And you can see other peoples efforts in this thread at zwol.org.)
I live in Seattle, and I am debating whether or not I want to go to A.P.E. this year.

Pushdot Studio, a gallery dedicated to archival-quality prints of digital art located in Portland, Oregon, is showing for the month of July "The Art of Storytelling: Comics in the Digital Age," a collection of work by seven cartoonists who either publish on the web, or use a computer to create their work.
I have a ruling reputation online as being outgoing and wacky. An online friend was once shocked to find out that my voice is not, in fact, at ALL chipmunky, despite the fact that I can yammer and pun and load on the sarcasm for paragraphs in chatrooms. But for some reason, around accomplished comic book people I'm a complete dimwit.
