Jon Morris may claim "the things he writes and draws make people sad," but he has had a hand in several well received webcomics. Starting with the Ignatz nominated Jeremy and moving on to current anthology project Open Book, Morris continues to expand the scope of material he brings to his particular style and approach to comics.

The Pulse has an interview with Jon Morris about his latest comic project, a follow-up to last year's online collaboration with Manning Krull. This year the duo is releasing a comic book timed for release right before Halloween. You can see some preview pages of the book, entitled "Boo!" on Morris' website here.
In 1999, there were a number of webcomics in regular publication, but nothing like the vast number of creators today. It was before Keenspot and Modern Tales, when the webcomic community was a much smaller world. In this smaller universe of webcomics, creators seemed more aware of their fellow peers, more prone to help each other out, and more likely to collaborate with one another. There were crossovers between webcomics, guest art for other webcomics, and on April 1st of 1999, Terrence Marks organized the first Great April Fools' Webcomic Swap, where webcomic creators surprised their readers by swapping webcomics with other creators for a day.

Jeremy - the nine-year old Frankenstein monster with a heart of gold and a body of criminal corpse parts - packed up its online existence way back at the beginning of the year.

Jeremy by Jon Morris is really a hidden treasure of the webcomics world. He concluded the regular run of the comic strip last year although you can still read the archives I believe.
Here's a chance for one more glimpse (and in color!) into the strange world of the little lost monster-boy, Jeremy.
