I'm Shaenon. I draw Narbonic and write a bunch of other webcomics.
What I'm reading right now:
If the popularity of Boy Meets Boy teaches us anything, it's that webcomics need more hot, shirtless young men making out with each other.
Cyril Connolly was a British literary critic who lived-
Ah. Excuse me. Yes?
"What do you think?"
"Of these rough layouts."
Well, I'm not exactly sure that's Molly, isn't it?
"It's the bit with the guitar. On the corner. Remember? So. What do you think?"
It looks good.
"You're just saying that."
No, really. I like the, uh. The thing, there. I can't wait to see it finished. Now, I need to get back to
Carl Jung called it the Shadow, though it's most commonly referred to as the Alter-Ego these days – a way of understanding how the different, and occasionally disparate parts of our personality relate to one another. The alter ego is that reflection of our inner-selves that we project into the outer world.

Tom Hart and Shaenon Garrity's Trunktown recently finished it's first chapter at serializer.net. Now non-subscribers can read this webcomic without subscribing with the use of the Bitpass micropayments system.

Well, we put Chris Crosby, Joey Manley, Mark Mekkes, Chris Morrisson, BoxJam, and Scott McCloud in a chat room together with an inquisitive Damonk, to see what would happen. The result was a frothy milkshake of a chat interview that focused on awards for webcomics and their value or worth in the webcomics community.

I feel like a drug addict these days, searching for some good heroines.
Seriously, if you look at film, books, comics â€“ heroines are scarce and even scarcer is a *good* heroine. I'm not looking for a Lara Croft who is a man with boobs. I'm not looking for girls who save the day with cute antics. I want a heroine who is a woman with her own skills, who is uncompromised by super powers or a need to appeal to men.
