I like the idea of a printed edition of Comixpedia delivered at my doorstep every month. The Internet really doesn't beat papers in some way. Plus I would love to read a lot more stuff than what Comixpedia currently offered. Maybe a webcomic or two could be in the magazine and that be totally great. I read a few webcomic, I could love to get hooked on more. I even imagined a 180 pages magazine.I like the idea of a printed edition of Comixpedia delivered at my doorstep every month.

A little love letter to the magazine that could.It's the third anniversary of Comixpedia this issue.
2006 is the fourth year we've been writing about webcomics. We've put out 38 monthly issues of the magazine and published more than 600 reviews, interviews and other articles about webcomics. We've posted more than 2500 news posts (that's not counting the magazine).

I'm working on a feature for our February issue and I'd like everyone's help!
A working title for this feature might be something like: "golden era classics of the web you might have missed." The idea here being to draw attention to early favorites, fan or critic-wise. Although some of these might be popular today many of them will be gone or no longer updating for various reasons. And I'm really looking for a broad approach here - for example an early favorite that's gone is Mr Chuck Show by Jon Myers - not exactly high art but in it's time a fairly popular webcomic. Others you could dig up might not have been well known at all but are notable for artistic, technical or other reasons.
To play, reply with title, author, url and briefly, why you picked it! Thanks!

Happy 2006! Jon Morris posted this sketch toasting the new year. Feel free to add links to other New Years-themed webcomics in the comments.

New blog on comixpedia.org and webcomics; a new holiday webcomic from Jon Morris; Websnark discusses Troop's reboot of Melonpool; and some non-webcomic linky goodness.

It hardly seems fair to call the cuddliest stitched-together golem-boy on the web, Jeremy, a horror webcomic. Jon Morris' creation has always been one of the most enjoyable reads of webcomics. Morris recently announced he will no longer regularly update Jeremy although I hope he finds a way to return once again to this work whether on the web or in print.
Incidently, the last webcomic up at Morris' Jeremy site is a guest episode from Neil von Flue who not only ended his webcomics projects but washed his hands of comics entirely (well at least for awhile... it already sounds to me like von Flue will return to comics on his terms when he's ready).

Jeremy: Just Turned Nine has been facing more than its share of deadline crises as of late. Creator and well-known oafish buffoon Jon Morris was reported to accredit the delays to "Get off my lawn, you sonsabitches. I will hit you with this bottle." Added the one-time Ignatz nominee "I usedta be a dancer."
Since the deadline worries for the five-year old strip show no sign of abating in the immediate future, Jon is making an open request for guest strips from the webcomic community.

Open Book started off as a free offering on Jonathan Morris' website and moved to MT sometime last year (2004). It now has a decent archive built up there and it's a really enjoyable read. Each installment is basically a separate story except forthe Nat Coogan episode which goes on for about 21 pages.
Morris, of course, is also the creator of Jeremy. In Open Book, however, there is a wider working of many of the themes and moods used in Jeremy.
I've no reason to post about this other than Morris hasn't been mentioned in awhile. When someone is quietly making great comics though, week after week, it's worth reminding folks.

Hey folks! If you haven't checked'em out yet, you should definitely have a look-see at this year's Fright Night winners: Mr. Ben Bittner's "Trail of the Snail God" is this year's readers' choice and Mr. Teague Tysseling's "MerMILF: A Piece of Fish Tail... er, Tale" was picked by our panel judge, Jon Morris.
And don't forget to have a look at all the other awesome entries!
