A moment of silence for the passing of a great writer and visionary: Arthur C. Clarke. I can still remember picking up books from him and Ray Bradbury at a very young age (7?) and while not completely understanding everything I read, being overwhelmed by the sense of imagination, and of possibility. I think my favorite Clarke novel was/is Rendezvous With Rama in part because it was a great fit for me when I read it (middle school I recall) but also for the sweep of it.

Gary Tyrrell covered the webcomics panel at the recent SPLAT confab (FLEEN had a more general post on SPLAT here) in New York City with an extensive write-up on the more interesting comments from the panelists: Dean Haspiel, Raina Telgemeier, Rich Stevens, Ted Rall, and Collen Venable.

It's snapshot of the ComixTalk archives time again. Here's a look back at what we were writing about on January 24th in years past.
- krysilis was seeking an artist for a comics project. Did s/he find one? Only the Intertubes know...
- Crying Macho Man plugged his latest comic "FOXY".
- DAJB plugged the latest developments in his comic Shades.
- Oren launched a new webcomic (still going!) called Mini Cactuses Starring Ned the Chainsaw Guy.
- Jason Salsbury was looking for a new artist for his webcomic Pet Professional. This wasn't the first or the last artist on the comic. Eventually Salsbury turned to Chad Diez to do the art on the comic - but Diez eventually dropped out in early 2007 (for the scoop on that check out the DS interview with Diez here). It looks like Pet Professional is on hiatus now.
- Julia Wertz launched her journal webcomic The Fart Party.
- Dave Wright, and several webcomic creators banded together to create The Biggest Loser website which chronicled their attempt to lose weight and raise some money for UNICEF in the process. It looks like this project is dead, dead, dead as the website URL has expired.
- Ping Teo looked at the "essence of" the webcomic GPF.
- Eric Burns reviewed the webcomic Goats.
- Al Schroeder interviewed Kris Straub during his Checkerboard Nightmare days.
- absolutely nothing!

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?

The Fart Party is an interesting new journal webcomic about every day life, bikes, boys and booze and is created by Julia Wertz, a 23 year old girl from San Francisco. Mostly done in black & white ink, the comics deal with all the funny little things that happen every day but you usually forget.
