A little love letter to the magazine that could.It's the third anniversary of Comixpedia this issue.
2006 is the fourth year we've been writing about webcomics. We've put out 38 monthly issues of the magazine and published more than 600 reviews, interviews and other articles about webcomics. We've posted more than 2500 news posts (that's not counting the magazine).

Tim Broderick posted an essay on his blog responding to part of T Campbell's feature this month, "Faith in Science: Detective Stories In A Confused World". Broderick, the creator of the mystery webcomic Odd Jobs, makes some interesting points in his post.
Detective, suspense, parlor game, crime, noir, police proceduralâ€¦ these are all different ways to slice the mystery genre. But how to organize the Mystery WEBCOMICS? Alphabetically by title? By author? By sub-genre? Or perhaps semi-randomly, as the whim takes me? Yep. That'll do.

I'm looking for any mystery webcomics (including ones that cross-over into other genres, like the supernatural) online.
Just the title and link are fine, I can take it from there. Any further data you'd like to include would be appreciated, of course.
Ones I already know (or which have been pointed out to me):
Lost & Found Investigations by Matt Milligan
She's A Nightmare by Jesse Chen
The Spider Cliff Mysteries
Christopher Mill's SUPERNATURAL CRIME
Basil Flint, P.I. by John Troutman
"Will Eisner's JOHN LAW" by Gary Chaloner over on Modern Tales:
The Dada Detective
Private Eye Butterfly
Kelly J. Cooper
While every genre offers its own inherent challenges, especially when reworked for web publication, mystery stories offer concerns unlike those of any other genre. All stories raise the tension about whatâ€™s going to happen next, but mysteries are unique in being primarily concerned with unraveling events that have already happened. (This is the primary factor that distinguishes mysteries from other types of crime fiction, where the killer is already known, and the goal is simply to catch him or her.) This unusual structure leads to a number of complications in dealing with serialization, improvisation, and other commonplace facets of web publication.

Our next issue features a great cover from Tim Broderick the creator of Odd Jobs which has three complete storylines at Modern Tales and a new one coming next year, titled "Children of the Revolution." So good I couldn't help post it a little early.
And a big thanks to Jamie Robertson from Clan Of the Cats for the cover from our October issue. Hope everyone is having a happy halloween tonight!

Part of the new publishing platform I'll be rolling out for the new Comixpedia site makes it a lot easier to publish the monthly magazine. Now all contributors will have one biography attached to all stories they write for us. This makes it easier for us (no need to retype each time a new story is published) and better for the contributor (no matter when someone reads a story they see your current biography).
If you've contributed to Comixpedia and want to submit a new bio go ahead and email me. Also, all contributors may now have a 100 x 100 pixel image to go with their stories. If you want to submit one, include it on an email to me.
I just finished loading in all of the stories published in 2003. Click read more for a list of contributors from that year. (One of the nice new features will be the ability to easily see all of the articles each contributor has written for Comixpedia.)
