The final comics in the May Day event are up. The "connect the panels" format of this event was a lot of fun - I started late but managed to almost finish my entries on time. Congrats to everyone who submitted comics (and an extra congrats to Neil and G.L. Gillen who finished an entry every week).
A big thanks to all of the artists who submitted the panels: Steve Bryant (Athena Voltaire), Tim Demeter (Reckless Life), Jerzy Drozd and Sara Turner (The Replacements), Faith Erin Hicks (Ice) and Clint Hollingsworth (Wandering Ones); and an extra big thanks to Matt Shepherd who coordinated this shindig and did a lot of work to make it all happen.
To solo or not to solo is not a question that many webcomics creators even bother to ask themselves. Most webcomics seem to be solo efforts by a single creator handling both the art and the writing. If this is in fact true it is no surprise, as both webcomics and small press print comics are generally thought of as a means for a creator to develop his or her own ideas without interference or outside pressure to craft a certain type of comic. It is in fact one of the wonderful things about comics, that the medium has such respect for the the lone creator speaking his or her voice through a comic.
Having said that, however, there's no question collaboration has played an important part in webcomics.
