"Campbell Campbell Campbell!" the thread screamed at me, flaring a red "angry" face at the top of the message board.
It was late. I was tired and sleep-deprived, and we had just officially begun the War on Terror, but I tried to steel myself for whatever the message might have to say. I tried, but not hard enough.
"I would have thought that the last story would have been enough to get him to put down the pen forever. I guess not."

From the desk of CRFH!!!:
Today's my birthday! Can you believe I was 22 when I started making CRFH? And now I'm 27, and I can't help but feeling a little old. And I have been making this strip now for 1/5th of my life! o.O But hey, birthdays are the happiness! Lots of gifts and cake. Speaking of gifts, it'd be really nice if you brainwash- er, convince other people to read CRFH. Madness needs to be spread!

I certainly have my own must have artists for future issues of comixpedia, but who would you like to see?
Tycho and Gabe are the creators of Penny Arcade, arguably the most widely read webcomic ever. Besides practically pioneering the genre of "gaming webcomics" Tycho and Gabe have experimented with every kind of business strategy devised for webcomics including advertising, donations, merchandise, and in the good old Dot-com boom days, getting paid by video game review websites to run Penny Arcade webcomics.
Without further hullabaloo, Tycho and Gabe answer your questions:
People â€“ most of them webcartoonists â€“ keep asking me the same question over and over. In fact, it was asked to me again during the Keenspot panel at Comic Con 2003, and I started babbling about something else, if I recall correctly.
The question is, of course, why the CRFH forum is so popular.

Maritza Campos' College Roomies From Hell (or as it's commonly known as CRFH!!!) posts its 1500 strip this coming Monday.
It also recently put out the 6th edition of the CRFH!!! comic book series.

Decent article on one person's picks for Comic Masterpieces. All of them are from comic books of course. My question is what would a similar list limited to webcomics look like? Or maybe the question should be, are webcomics mature enough as an artform to begin asking such questions? And if not, how long does it have to go?
Every online comics reader encounters college webcomics sooner or later. They're so common you might start to feel like every third comic you encounter is college-based. But, despite the history and nature of college comics in print, it seems the most popular "college" strips are scarcely about college life at all, building instead on elements not found in the real world at all, much less college.
There he was.
He looked nothing like I expected. Instead of thin, parted hair, thick baroque curls snaked around his upper head. He was taller and thinner than his cartoon likeness. But something about the way he carried himself, the way the glasses sat on his eyes... I still recognized him.

Why should you head to San Diego for Comicon this month (July 17-20th)? Because there will be a huge number of great creators there to meet, including:
R Stevens and the Dumbrella Gang ("i'll be there with a bunch of other cartoonists [Sam Brown, Jeff Rowland, John Allison, R Stevens, Jon Rosenberg and Andrew Bell] we have a double endcap over near the bayside cafe & small press area. (#1148)")
Clint Hollingsworth of Wandering Ones will be at the Keenspot. So will Maritza Campos of CRFH!!!
Scott R. Kurtz and Frank Cho (sharing a booth somewhere near the Image booth)
At the GirlAMatic.com/RumbleGirls.com table will be Spike, Jason Thompson, Shaenon Garrity and Lea.
And lots more info in a helpful Comicon thread here.
