This is an update to a previous post here, thanks for the cumulative suggestions on that thread. JUST so we're clear - this is open-sourced to everyone research for a possible article to appear next month at ComixTalk. I don't endorse the list or the order at all; at this point I've tried to include all of the suggestions I've gotten and I also went through all of the comics ComixTalk has ever reviewed and pulled quite a few titles.
We're at the point where it'll be most helpful if you tell me comics you think should go on the list, where (what number approximately) and which comic should get bumped. If you just want to change the order you can do that to but there'll be another post before the month's through asking for help with that.

Remember these guys? Hope so.
Also, the cartoonist cameos continue! Kris Straub, who in real life is as sweet as pie and a stand-up kinda dude and is never ever ever seen carrying half-conscious gals around, volunteered for this unflattering depiction. Good for him.

I'm back from the Baltimore Comic Con 2008 and man, what a trip. This was by far the largest comic book convention I had ever exhibited at. You can see the full set of photos I took in my BCC 2008 photo set on Flickr.com.

Well, folks, it looks like it’s time to power down The Webcomic Overlook for a while. As some of you already know, in a short while, El Santo is getting hitched! So you’ll probably be calling me “Mr. El Santo” in the near future, I suppose. Also, the updates will probably slow to a trickle. It’s already been rather difficult to update this site lately, what with all the picking up relatives from the airport and wrapping up wedding favors and scheduling spa appointments and coordinating with the bridal party and such.

The comic-convention season is almost over, but I have two big ones before the end of the year -- one of which is coming this weekend!
Baltimore Comic Con: Saturday and Sunday. Appearing with my How To Make Webcomics co-authors, Kris Straub, Scott Kurtz and Dave Kellett. This is going to be the only east-coast appearance for the four of us, so if you live on the right-hand side of the country and if you listen to the Webcomics Weekly podcast and/or if you want to get your copy of HTMW signed by all four of us, this is your last chance this year.

Entrepreneur magazine recently ran an article about the business of webcomics:

On one of Halfpixel’s Webcomics Weekly podcasts, Kris Straub identifies with an e-mailer who claims that he has way too many ideas to contain in one comic. (The person who sent the e-mail got roundly mocked by everyone else at Halfpixel, though in a playful manner. At least, I don’t think Dave Kellett [...]

Check out the often-imitated-never-duplicated Webcomics Weekly Podcast, featuring Scott Kurtz, Dave Kellett, Kris Straub, and myself. If you love listening to cartoonists talking shop, this is a must. You can keep up with the latest updates via our RSS feed. Episode 45: Another episode sponsored by Endicia.com. Scott has vanished! But Dave, Kris and I hit the mailbag and keep things rollin'. We discuss tagging/transcribing comics, shipping time, editing your writing and taking time to recharge your creative batteries. Endica.com has been kind enough to sponsor our show this month.
