A whole year of webcomic news wrapped up in a pretty package with cookies and milk commentary provided by Comixpedia contributors: Alexander Danner, Ping Teo, Kristofer Straub, T Campbell and Phil Kahn.
A simple list of people of webcomics based on their contributions to the medium in 2005. And we have no doubt that we left off someone we shouldn't have. We're sorry. We'll try harder next year.

Over at Newsarama, Daniel Epstein interviews Phil & Kaja Foglio about moving their successful comic book Girl Genius to online publication.
Phil & Kaja Foglio recently published the last print comic book for Girl Genius and now publish the story in progress online between publishing graphic novel collections. Foglio discussed the reasons for the move:
Where we really made our money was from sales via our internet store. Whenever a new issue of Girl Genius appeared, sales on all of our other books surged. This applied to everything we have in print, What's New, Buck Godot, XXXenophile, and all our gaming product and secondary merchandise, such as goggles and Cafe Press items. It reminded people that we were still alive and still in business. The problem was that we could only bring the comic out four times a year.
Transforming it into an online comic solved everything. Now, instead of four times a year, I have an ad that appears three times a week. Sales from the website store have tripled.

Yesterday, Phil and Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius debuted online. The comic was previously published in print as a periodical and graphic novel from 2000. The current plan appears to be to serialize it on the web as well as collect it in graphic novel form.
