A webcomics collective I hadn't heard about before is Pens and Tales. Go check out some of its members.
And do R. Stevens' recent Grampa Mac strips remind you of a certain Comixpedia cover from 2004? Don't answer that!

Chances are you like comics and you like music, but do you want them fused together?
Tym Godek takes a look at music and comics and examines how they interact, what creators have come up with to date and where we might go in the future.
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).

Our March issue has a dual focus - webcomics that use music (and sound) AND webcomics that focus on music or musicians. Help us out by posting these kinds of webcomics in this thread.
I'll start off with -
1. Brambletown (sound)
2. Magic Inkwell Comic Strip Theatre (has music)
3. Nothing Nice to Say (about music and musicians)
4. Four Fours (about a band)
The book Webcomics: Tool and Techniques for Digital Cartooning by Steven Withrow and John Barber is a comprehensive overview of the state of webcomics. Webcomics: Tools and Techniques for Digital Cartooning is a helluva book. If nothing else, it's full of a ton of useful information and thoughts on webcomics art and business. It's got tutorials, round table discussions, theory, and even a big ol' gallery of webcomics.
But in writing this review, there's been one thought sticking in my mind: namely, this is a wonderful book... but who is it for?

The Small Press Expo is all about the art of the comics medium. Comics from every type of genre, style and format. It's the face of the comics medium without the distortion of the obsessive focus on the superhero genre most comic conventions would give you.
Plus, it's been well infiltrated by webcomics creators.
I spent all of Saturday at the convention this year and at times the floor was fairly crowded. Unfortunately since then I've been away in the Golden State and just didn't have a chance to write up a proper feature on it. So consider this a bit of a rambling remembrance of people, moments and most importantly, comics.
(And there's a lot of pictures after the jump so it'll take more than a second for the full page to load.)
