Welcome to October! A big thanks to Spike, creator of Templar, Arizona, for creating this month's cover art. This past weekend we posted the rest of the September issue: interviews with Gisele Lagace and Shayna Marchese; a feature by Grant Thomas examining the integration of text and images with an interesting look at different ways to use speech bubbles; and Michael Payne looks at some great print comics that have moved to embrace the web. More interesting articles are on their way in October...
And in other news...

I built a "library" of webcomics and creators back in the fall of 2005 which I put into beta before realizing it was too much editorial work to deal with and the same information could be better provided through the community edited webcomic wiki - COMIXPEDIA.
Nevertheless looking back on the assortment of names collected (some from me, some sent in from you) I wonder if anyone has any significant updates on these creators 18 months later. Maybe we should interview some of them?
Introducing a new monthly column spotlighting completed webcomics. This month covers Narbonic, Cooking With Anne, The Front, The Tyger and Europe's First Smoker.
For those of you in and around the Fort Wayne, Indiana area, there is a gallery exhibition featuring comics artwork by Make Like A Tree Comics artists Sara Turner and Jerzy Drozd 02 October through 03 November at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.
The exhibition is titled Monsters, Aliens, Robots and Teenagers: The Unlikely Protagonists of Jerzy Drozd and Sara Turner. On display will be pages from the various comics they've illustrated, both independently and professionally. You can get more info at the School of Visual & Performing Arts events page.

A big thanks to everyone who is advertising with Comixpedia right now including these three great webcomics:
- [UPDATED: We are also now running ads from Things Change by Derik Badman]
- The Front by Jerzy Drozd which is action-packed comic goodness is heading towards its dramatic conclusion.
- A Pirate's Life For Me by Iain Hamp is a comic about a reality tv show where contestants compete to be a pirate captain.
- O'deer by Joseph Grevelli is about what Santa's reindeers do the rest of the year. Yuletide yaks abound!
We're also being sponsored this month by Comedy Central's Freak Show which is a new show from David Cross (everyone knows who David Cross is right?) and John Benjamin (he had something to do with Dr. Katz)
This year we've been running the Comixpedia sites on a dedicated box so our expenses are a big step up from past years. So please check out our sponsors - they're often very cool people and/or products and by checking them out you help keep Comixpedia free and running (fairly) smoothly and me from losing too much money (which makes Mrs. X happy)!
