There's an incredible wealth of articles in the ComixTalk archives: features and columns on craft, theory and business, insightful reviews and interviews with some of the most interesting folks in webcomics. We'll be taking a regular look back at past issues and catching up with creators we've previously covered.
We interviewed Ramon Perez and Rob Coughler in our November 2004 issue and Ramon Perez did the cover for Comixpedia's 2004 End of the Year issue. Perez and Coughler have had a busy year between their webcomic Butternutsquash and helping to found the new webcomics collective Transmission-X so it was a good time to catch up on what they're up to as we head towards 2008...

Bob Stevenson reviews a lot of webcomics at his blog and his most recent review is of Butternut Squash by Ramon Perez and Rob Coughler. His reviews always consist of a webcomic about the reviewed webcomic followed by a short written review. It's an entertaining format - worth catching up with if you aren't already reading.
