From the San Diego Comic-Con Program:
Saturday, July 19
4:30â€“6:00 Keenspot: From the Web to the Moonâ€” The green-lovin' uberbrains behind Keenspot.com, the most popular site for original comics on the web, will be breaking news on the keenest happenings and discussing Keenspot's slow but steadily continued expansion from the web to other forms of media, including print comic books and graphic novels, wireless content, animation, toys, and eventually maybe even the moon itself. Panelists will include Maritza Campos (College Roomies From Hell!), Mike Rosenzweig (Everything Jake), Clint Hollingsworth (Wandering Ones), Brad Guigar (Greystone Inn), Steve Troop (Melonpool), Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary), Alan Foreman (SSDD), Darren Bleuel (pnes), and a tentative appearance by the sasquatch-like Chris Crosby (Superosity), who may or may not be a giant rubber suit filled with super-intelligent puppies. All attendees will receive at least two free Keenspot comic books, as well as the thanks of a grateful nation. Room 7A
6:00â€“7:00 ModernTales.comâ€” Modern Tales is the leading provider of commercial web comics, offering a number of anthology and single-series websites to paying subscribers, including, among others, ModernTales.com and James Kochalka's AmericanElf.com. Panelists will discuss the aesthetic and commercial opportunities these websites afford cartoonists, and at least one major announcement will be made. Panelists include Cayetano Garza Jr. (Whimville), Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma), Shaenon K. Garrity (Narbonic), Rick Hoberg (Gizmo & Geers), Donna Barr (Desert Peach), and T. Campbell (Rip & Teri). ModernTales.comâ€™s Joey Manley moderates. Room 7A
Like A Disease
Three AM on a Saturday and I am barely conscious. Sleepily, my fingers tap across the keyboard, editing the html code on the screen before me. I upload the page onto the server and hope that the third time will be the charm. Alas, no; the link between the main page and the latest archive page is still broken. I am dead tired and just want to go to bed. Still, I am compelled to stay awake by one thing alone; the comic. I can't let myself go to bed before I finish updating my webcomic.
Itâ€™s like a disease sometimes.

Steve Troop, creator of the Keenspot webcomic, Melonpool, was just interviewed on the Pulse. A sci-fi parody, Melonpool comes off as a "â€¦ mix between Gilligan's Island and Star Trek." Read the whole Interview!
