When we switched to Drupal one of the nice things I was able to set up was pulling in the RSS feeds of other sites to Comixpedia. That way we do less "link" blogging here but you can still get a sense of what's going on in webcomicland from the syndicated headlines.
It's the third annual Comixpedia People Of Webcomics List. This was the hardest one yet to compile. There's a lot of webcomics and a lot of people doing interesting things in and around webcomics. This list, as in past years, is an odd effort to compare apples and oranges: artistic achievement, audience popularity, technical achievement, business savvy, news-making impact all go into the mix.

Ouch - Jeph Jacques (creator of Questionable Content) had an accident with a knife, severing an artery in his hand.
Here's hoping he heals up quickly (and painlessly!).
After a summer spent away from Comixpedia and comics too, it was great to catch up with all kinds of comics and creators at the Small Press Expo (aka SPX) this weekend. I caught some panels, bought some books and chatted with a lot of webcomic-friendly creators including Jeph Jacques and Danielle Corsetto.

Joystiq, a popular videogame blog has a weekly poll on its readers favorite webcomics. Naturally these are all gamer webcomics but I was surprised to see in the most recent poll that Press Start To Play is essentially tied with Penny Arcade in popularity and another webcomic I hadn't read before, Fanboys In Love, was in third place.
Andy Bell (Creatures In My Head) is having a launch party for his Zliks toys on Friday 13th in New York City.
Good news at the Fortress of Dumbrellatude: R Stevens is looking for help with his t-shirt n' swag shipping empire.
Exciting tasks include folding t-shirts, filling orders, counting things, moderate computer use and discussing the paranormal at length. Perks include being away from the general public and occasional free goodies. Also, money.
We're closing in on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and like others I am thinking about giving it a try this year...
Funny, but this was exactly like a lot of my sports practices as a kid. Only for baseball...

Is anyone else from around the Phoenix area?Ã‚ It sure would be nice to get together with other webcomickers more frequently than whenever I can manage to get to San Diego Comic Con.

The common problem with webcomics right now, is that they're mostly one page per day. Long from, story based comics such as Megatokyo seems to have no end in sight.
Why not have them delivered in at least six or ten pages per week? Or how about in the usual Mon/Wed/Fri schedule, have at least three to five pages of comics posted online?
Also, why not complete an episode of a webcomic aheadÃ‚ of time before posting them bit by bit according to schedule?
