This day in ComixTalk:
Faith Erin Hicks blogged about internal narration in comics; Platinum's purchase of Wowio was still shaking out in the news (a year later and there's still no evidence that Wowio has paid off all of its debts to creators and publishers.)
Platinum Studios filed for an IPO; and Phil Kahn posted video of numerous interviews he did at Connecticon with creators such as Chris Hastings and Kent Archer of Dr. McNinja and Rob Balder and Jami Noguchi of ErfWorld.
Also from the forums, RanJado wondered about how to draw distinctions between comics' readerships;
Jamie Robertson announced that he would stop working on his webcomic Clan of the Cats. I'm not sure of the ends and outs of Robertson's work status on the comic every year since than, but I'm happy to report that right now he is working on the strip (there's an update today) and I think his work has gotten better every year. Great strip full of of supernatural elements, adventure and relationships, all with really strong artwork.
James Kochalka won best online comic at the Ignatzs for American Elf. He, however, did not accept his award in a gorilla suit.
In the eternal struggle between "story comics" and "gag comics," I tend to come down on the side of the long form. Yes, a little chuckle is good, but I'd rather follow characters through an adventure, even if that adventure is just them trying to return a library book or attending a "meet the tenants" party in their apartment building.

When we switched to Drupal one of the nice things I was able to set up was pulling in the RSS feeds of other sites to Comixpedia. That way we do less "link" blogging here but you can still get a sense of what's going on in webcomicland from the syndicated headlines.
One way to think of the history of webcomics is as the big bang of comics. At the beginning there were far fewer webcomic creators and they were (virtually) clustered together much more tightly (hence all the wistful talk of "webcomic community") and then, if the inflationary webcomicology theory is correct, those early webcomic exploded into the universe of comics online we have today.
We've had many contributors to Comixpedia over the years - here's a full list through the end of 2005:

This month's cover artist is Maritza Campos, creator of the popular, long-running comic College Roomies From Hell!!! (or CRFH!!! for short).
I'd also like to thank current and recent advertisers: the comic RUMF by Mark Palmer and the comic Krakow! I guess I'll also thank HBO and comedian Dane Cook but somehow I am dubious as to whether they actually read Comixpedia :)
