I won't be at Webcomics Weekend but will you? Panel and pub crawl schedules up at the website.
Mitch Clem and Nation of Amanda ("It takes a nation of Buffys to hold us back") are drawing clever riffs on existing album art for a cover song project called Under the Influence. Some very cool stuff there.
If you haven't checked out the Covered Blog get it a look - classic comic book covers redone. Not all of them are interesting but some really are.
SciFi SyFy Webcomics
New installment of that Star Wars webcomic. Oh nos - trade discussions will conquer the galaxy.
I've seen several blogs point at Runners by Sean Wang which does look pretty good.
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
Kent Archer, the Inker on Dr McNinja has a new comic with co-creator Tom Torres called Porterhouse.
Porterhouse follows the trials and tribulations of a struggling comic book artist named Porter trying to break into the comic industry. We follow him on his various endeavors from traveling to conventions, taking on side jobs, and just hating the life of a starving artist. In order to survive the struggles of NY life he earns his living by working the meat counter at the local grocery store.

Comics Worth Reading points to what may be the first multi-level marketing webcomic scheme.
Last week was the eighth anniversary of Mitch Clem's Nothing Nice to Say. Comixtalk had an interview with Mitch back in 2006.
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
Tozzers is doing a strange Terminator/Anti-Ben Affleck storyline (I thought bashing Affleck was Theater Hopper's gig) Despite the heavy outlining I like the artwork on this strip, I'm less sold on the comic as a whole but still worth checking out.

NEW and IMPROVED!
Check out our interview with TRACED creator Tracy White, one of the nominees for Best Online Comic at this year's Ignatz Awards.
And what did I hear on the radio this morning but NPR's interview with Chris Onstad of Achewood and "The Great Outdoor Fight" - very cool, probably only the second webcomic interview on NPR I can think of in 10 years (Pete Abrams being the other one).
The Harveys were awarded at this past weekend's Baltimore Comicon and Nicholas Gurewitch won for Perry Bible Fellowship. (Gurewitch also won a "Special Award for Humor")
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BLOGS
ComicMix has the scoop on Stephen Colbert's upcoming appearance in a Spiderman comic -- I still remember fondly the SNL-Spiderman issue (I have that somewhere; wonder if it's worth a couple bucks...)

Wow - The Dark Horse presents on MySpace this month kicks all kinds of sass: Nothing Nice to Say by Mitch Clem, Achewood by Chris Onstand, Beanworld by Larry Marder, and new stuff from Liz Greenfield: Steak and Kidney Punch.
Jennifer Contino interviews Jessica Hickman the artist on Otis Frampton's Oddly Normal.

If you were putting together the band you’d definitely need Kris Straub in there.Â I don’t even know if he plays bass but I put him there so I could include Mitch Clem from NN2S on lead guitar (I don’t actually know if Mitch plays himself).Â I can’t think of a drummer although there must [...]

The Comics Reporter has an overview and a lot of links to the recent TokyoPop restructuring.
JUSTIFY MY DEAD TREE HYPE
This looks cool - Mitch Clem is doing some comics for a print series:
I have about fifty more of these fully inked. It's a new series I've been working on called "Something Great", which will be my first foray into creating a direct-to-print comic strip series (as opposed to a webcomic, which I already have too many of). Five per issue have been running in Razorcake, so you'll see those too once new issues come out, as usual. Otherwise, patience is your best hope for ridiculousness.
Chris Williams listens to comics podcasts so you don't have to... unless you really want to!
