Blamimation is a sort of limited animation, but in combination with the voice work by Kurtz and Straub, this is hilarious.

Kristofer Straub returns to the pages of Comixpedia with a new column based on his long-running Checkerboard Nightmare webcomic. As always, Chex and crew will be taking aim at the state of webcomics, and making you laugh while making you think. This month's installment was so topical that we couldn't wait until the rest of the issue hits to bring it to you. So here it is.

A late night wrap up of the week that was. And Happy Holidays to everyone around the world. Stay safe and happy out there.
New group blog, FLEEN on webcomics spawned by Jon Rosenberg. Although I don't agree with Rosenberg's categorial rant on creator-written articles about webcomics, I am all in favor of FLEEN's stated mission of using non-webcomics creators to write on webcomics. Because anything that draws in more good writers interested in writing about webcomics is a good thing for webcomics and frankly for Comixpedia. Don't get me wrong, I love our current crew of contributors. It's just given our ridiculously low pay (BUT HEY! COMIXPEDIA DOES PAY FOR CONTRIBUTIONS, if you hadn't heard that) it's not easy to recruit people who don't already love the medium going in.
Also Eric wrote an essay responding to Jon's post. Since Eric is a webcomic creator and critic, it's not surprising he was interested in responding to Jon.
I also got a press release from Powerful Press about new issues of their comic titles, METADAWN and NOCTURNAL ESSENCE. Right now all of the archives at their site are free to readers.
Speaking of writing about comics it's been awhile since I've mentioned it so here's the link to the Comics Blog Update Machine where you can find up-to-the-minute links to a lot of blogs on comics.
And last but not least - here's the latest addition to the new Comixpedia creators library: Kevin Robertson. Robertson's webcomic is Beyond The Punchline.

We're heading into our fourth year of publishing Comixpedia in 2006. So what do you want us to cover next year in the magazine? Throw out some ideas for future issues here.

I can't tell if Scott is satirizing himself or is really pissed off. Is anyone else's sarcasm detector working? I think mine's broken.
A freewheeling discussion about the wide world of webcomics with Eric Burns, Wednesday White, Phil Kahn, Giland Pellaeon, Bob Stevenson, Ping Teo, Daku, Karl Kuras, Doctor Setebos and William G, moderated by Xaviar Xerexes.
You may have noticed that in 2005, the "webcomics blogosphere" took off like never before. There were almost as many people writing about webcomics as making them (okay not really, but there were a whole lot more blog posts about webcomics this year.) We gathered together several popular bloggers for an online roundtable discussion on webcomics here at the tail end of 2005.
We talked about webcomics and creators, art and commerce and of course, webcomics drama. Plus some predictions for the year ahead.
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.
