North Carolina WebComics Coffee Clatch
Date: January, 18th, 2009
Location: Chapel Hill Comics' Event Room, Chapel Hill, NC
Back in 2003-2004, ComixTALK ran a series of articles under the banner of "Most Read" trying to work through how to measure the respective audience shares of various webcomics. More recently, T Campbell borrowed the idea to generate a list of such webcomics for the former version of webcomics.com.
I've pulled together one more Most Read list, this time relying fairly heavily on Project Wonderful data. Mostly though I went to the trouble of compiling this to point out how someone else could do a better job of it in the future.

Welcome to ComixTalk... may I take your order? I've got an interview with the elusive Pokey the Penguin up and Brigid Alverson talks with Jeremy Ross of TokyoPop about its Manga Pilots program. You may also want to check out my weekend post chock-filled with links to interesting stories and a new comic worth checking out. (What exactly is a "chock" and how would you fill it?)
Missed this, but Creative Commons has an interview with Mr. Diesel Sweeties, Rich Stevens. Back in 2005, ComixTalk held a roundtable on creative commons licenses and comics with T Campbell, Lawrence Lessig, Neeru Paharia, Mia Garlick, JD Frazer, and Cory Doctorow.
ComixMix has an interview with D.J. Coffman, currently working on Flobots. (Folks should also check out D.J.'s very recent post on hosting your webcomic yourself - a short guide to getting started online independently.)
Digital Strips has a short interview with Zach Weiner - of SMBC and Captain Excelsior
Rick Marshall had a great interview with Jennie Breeden of Devil's Panties.
David Rothman looks at the decline in traffic to Wowio.com but as Dirk Deppey notes, Wowio was essentially off the air for a good chunk of the summer.
I neglected to mention Andrew Wahl won first and third place in the International Cartoon contest at the Homer Davenport Days festival in Oregon earlier this month. Wahl is a talented cartoonist - check out more of his work here. Also, I just think it's cool that a town has an entire festival to celebrate Homer Davenport - an internationally respected and pioneering political cartoonist from the turn of the century.
Two East Coast events coming up fast. First this coming weekend is the Baltimore Comicon (with, as FLEEN notes, the only East Coast appearance of all four How To Make Webcomics authors) The Baltimore Comicon is where the Harvey Awards are presented - Shaenon Garrity has the scoop on a contest to win tickets to the Harvey Awards.
Next from October 4-5th is my hometown (close enough anyhow) convention, the Small Press Expo (SPX) over in Bethesda, Maryland. The Ignatz Awards are presented at SPX. Guests include Bryan Lee O’Malley, James Kochalka, Richard Thompson, Tom Tomorrow, etc!
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
Dirk Deppey links to this pretty cool idea -- The Superest wherein Kevin Cornell and Matthew Sutter take turns creating superheroes and villains that defeat each other’s creations. And Tom Spurgeon links to news of a book deal for the site.

Comic Stuff: I’m updating COTC once a week for now, but I don't plan to announce any return on the site or anywhere else, (other then my blogs), until I can sustain it. Not sure how long that will go on, but count on it for Friday’s this fall. ;)
