I haven't paid a lot of attention to this previously but the next "world-wide SketchCrawl" is scheduled for April 22nd. If you want to participate it sounds like there's more info on their forums. (Let Comixpedia know what it's all about if anyone does get involved.)
The latest Digital Strips podcast is an interview with Joey Manley who is behind sites such as Modern Tales, Webcomics Nation, GirlAMatic, Graphic Smash, Talk About Comics and Serializer.net. (I haven't listened to it yet though)
While I know there are some problems with the current top sites script at the Comixpedia portal (and once I get Comixpedia.com and Comixpedia.org "right" I'll turn back to reinvigorating that portion of Comixpedia-land) I just wanted to point out that Clan of the Cats (Library Entry) has been #1 on it the entire time. If you haven't before, go check out Jamie's comic. It's got an epic storyline with love, betrayal and a back-drop of pagan magik.

Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration, but between Joey Manley's latest Webhead column and a new feature called INTRO TO WEBCOMICS, they at least have some regular non-comic book coverage wedged into the site. The first Intro column is by Sara Turner wherein she writes a bit about her webcomic File 49.

And over at the Pulse, Joey Manley interviews Kathryn and Stuart Immonen, the creators of Never as Bad as You Think.
The Pulse also features comics writer Warren Ellis' column The Ministry wherein Ellis often dives into webcomics. I'm not sure I've been consistent in linking to it which is too bad because it's been good reading. So here you go:

In the debut installment of the TalkAboutComics Podcast, Joey Manley talks with Ben Adams about his WCN comic Misfit's Journey, and the two wax nostalgic about their old times together in the early 80's comics self-publishing scene.

Heidi MacDonald's review of 2005 includes comments from publisher and codesmith Joey Manley, creators Shaenon Garrity and Dave Roman and TCJ editor Dirk Deppey among many other comicbook folks I've never heard of. I'm webcomic-centric folks and proud of it!
