Since we're talking about women in webcomics, let's talk about the men who write about women in webcomics, and how do they fare in the portrayal of the fairer sex.

I certainly have my own must have artists for future issues of comixpedia, but who would you like to see?

Leah Fitzgerald is Executive Editor for Interviews at Comixpedia. Currently she's reading:
1. Wapsi Square by Paul Taylor. The current storyline is coming together and it looks like it's going to be a treat.
2. Bruno by Christopher Baldwin. Don't we all have a Bruno moment now and then?
3. Dieselsweeties by R Stevens. Torpor is in trouble - Rich needs to hurry up and get to it.
4. Scary Go Round by John Allison. It's so cute to see Ryan in trouble - and in love. Da da dum.
5. Homestar Runner by Mike and Matt Chapman. Sure, it's not really a web comic but it cracks me up more consistently than anything else on the web.

Keenspot seems to be going through a significant growth spurt this year.
Kristofer Straub's Checkerboard Nightmare, Michael Terracciano's Dominic Deegan, Frank "Damonk" Cormier's (Naught-)Framed!!!, and Paul Taylor's Wapsi Square are the most recent additions in what seems to be a massive wave of new blood at the popular entertainment hub. With these latest recruits, the total of new webcomics to join Keenspot this year has now reached 11.
Checkerboard Nightmare has chosen a novel way of marking the occasion through its most current spoofish storyline. The webcomic's main character, a charismatically pathological publicity-whore named Chex, has just announced his acceptance into a Famous Webcomic Group -- this FWG's main page will seem awfully familiar to many.
Sources also report that these are not the last new inductees of the year -- readers can expect to see one more handful of additions to the Keenspot lineup in the next few months.

I was interested to see Paul Taylor mention that his favorite way to draw is on newsprint with soft lead pencils. I wouldn't think that scanned well but from the looks of Wapsi Square, apparently it works just fine.
