Instead of torturing you all with another pun from Mr. Skeleton, I figured Iâ€™d instead indulge in something that I havenâ€™t done around here in a while: the fabled Sketchdump. Obviously, none of these are finished yet, but I aim to ink and color â€˜em when the time is right. (All except for the last, which I am unsure about. Youâ€™ll see!)

John and I are back from Webcomics Weekend! Iâ€™ll try to give as complete a synopsis as possible without boring you with too many details.
But first, a bit of bad news: I know I said that we â€œare dedÂiÂcated to finÂishÂing the curÂrent arc in an uninÂterÂrupted fashionâ€. I know it! So it is with a heavy heart I report that a frustrating last-minute computer issue has forced us to resort to a filler strip for tomorrow.

I built a "library" of webcomics and creators back in the fall of 2005 which I put into beta before realizing it was too much editorial work to deal with and the same information could be better provided through the community edited webcomic wiki - COMIXPEDIA.
Nevertheless looking back on the assortment of names collected (some from me, some sent in from you) I wonder if anyone has any significant updates on these creators 18 months later. Maybe we should interview some of them?

Infamous webcomics author Ryan North has joined Dayfree Press. If you have not already experienced the comedic genius of Dino Comics, now is the perfect opportunity. As a member of the Dayfree collective, the man formerly known as Ryan North willingly remits any and all ties to an individual name, identity or personality.
In other news, our good friend Neil Gustavson has made the difficult decision to step down as the chief organizer and public face of Dayfree Press. Neil remains a dedicated member of the group he founded in 2003, and hopes that the change will allow him the extra time he needs to focus on his future comic projects and his Vault Distribution business. In Neil's place, Sam and Fuzzy author Sam Logan will be taking up the reins of the group. Readers and artists alike can fully expect a period of intense creative interference and stifling authoritarian rule.

Ferris!ConnectiCon! Rob Balder tipped us off yesterday to the financial woes resulting from this year's installment of the convention and the efforts to raise funds to pay off the organizer's debts. Now Phil Kahn, who writes at the blog I'm Just Saying (which is a damn good Pepsi next to Eric Burns' Coke) is auctioning off a commissioned essay on any topic or form to raise some money for this effort. If you want to bid on Kahn check out the details here.
In other necks of the webcomics woods, Sam Logan has lured infamous alternative cartoonist Rikk Estoban into doing a week of guest webcomics for Logan's webcomic Sam and Fuzzy. Just checking out the wide range of this series of stylistically diverse comics you can see how the notorious and perpetually misunderstood creator of Skull Panda has really influenced today's webcomics scene.
It's clear people are still recovering from SDCC (I'm in WIGU-withdrawal!) - however, Scott McCloud points out a Flickr photo stream with lots of webcomic-familiar faces.
In Clickwheel news, William Simons has a blog where he's writing about developments with Clickwheel. Clickwheel seems to be doing well - it's a featured download at the Apple site, and is #2 on the Top Downloads list.
And Chris Crosby late yesterday posted at Keenspot (and sent to us - thanks!) a lengthy list of exciting new developments at Keenspot. The full list is after the read more jump, but beyond previously reported news of Two Lumps joing Keenspot and the namechange of Keenspace to COmic Genesis, webcomic creators will probably be interested in the further reduced price for advertising by webcomics on the Keenspot network.
