It's a cover gimmick for webcomic magazines that Comixpedia just may have to copy someday. Covers by both Kris Dresen and Daniel Merlin Goodbrey adorn this month's issue of the Tart.
For the last installment of Form is Function: Postscripts, John Barber is back with the conclusion of his conversation with Justine Shaw, creator of the acclaimedâ€”and wonderfulâ€”Nowhere Girl.
When we discussed the Year in Review issue it seemed like it would be a natural to write a list of people in webcomics for the year. But what to call it? Most of the time when media magazines talk about people in film, television, music or what-have-you, they can call their articles "The Power List..." or the "The It List..." because, well, those media have power and star power. Webcomics have those things, but alas, still in smaller quantities.
One more little conversation with a webcomics creator, this time Justine Shaw of Nowhere Girl. When Nowhere Girl first appeared, as a fully-formed, smartly written, and beautifully drawn 40-page comic, it obviously created a sensation.
Justine was the firstâ€”and so far onlyâ€”comics creator to be nominated for an Eisner award without ever having any work in print. And sheâ€™s great to talk to, as youâ€™ll see here:
Hi Justine. When and why did you start putting comics on the web?
My first webcomic was Nowhere Girl issue 1, which was October of 2001. The Web, for good or ill, lets anyone, including yours truly, put their stuff out there, no editor (more than likely), no compromises in the way you want to do what you do.
Cyril Connolly was a British literary critic who lived-
Ah. Excuse me. Yes?
"What do you think?"
"Of these rough layouts."
Well, I'm not exactly sure that's Molly, isn't it?
"It's the bit with the guitar. On the corner. Remember? So. What do you think?"
It looks good.
"You're just saying that."
No, really. I like the, uh. The thing, there. I can't wait to see it finished. Now, I need to get back to

Modern Tales, the leading publisher of subscription-based webcomics, announced this week that its newest offering, girlamatic.com, a webcomics anthology targetting female comics readers, has launched to tremendous success.
"This is our biggest launch since Modern Tales itself," said site publisher Joey Manley (the company publishes numerous targetted webcomics sites, including the avant-garde serializer.net, the action-packed AdventureStrips.com, and several single-cartoonist sites, such as James Kochalka's AmericanElf.com).
"The established comics industry, whether mainstream or 'alternative,' doesn't exactly have attracting female readers at the top of its priority list," said Joey Manley. "And I'd say that that's a shame ... but, hey, they've left a huge business opportunity open for us. I couldn't be happier."
