I think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to stagger my Tim talks about the stuff heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s doing posts and my talkback fueling dissertations. Tomorrow more expostulating on stuff and hang out till Friday for Graphic Smash talk.
Last week it went from murky rumor to stone cold fact, that I have joined Clickwheel as associate editor. Tim Pilcher, a man of far greater experience, is our new editor in chief.
The world is changing. Who now has the strength to stand against the armies of Clickwheel? To stand against the might of iPods... and the union of the Two Tims?
Obligatory LoTR references aside, I get the feeling a lot of you guys arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really that aware of what Clickwheel is. Well no fear, boys and girls I am jam-packed with the knowledge you crave!

So in the comments section of my last post, an interesting point was raised. Some web cartoonists can take an Ã¢â‚¬Å“us vs. themÃ¢â‚¬Â mentality towards mainstream comics, proclaiming we are the future and that the comics industry as it stands right now is due for a major change. I find myself in this very camp, which is why the point came up. That got me thinking.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not asking if the above is true or not, we can all argue that until our typing fingers are sore and bleeding and nothing will change today, what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m asking is if this question is getting us anywhere?

Hi. Tim Demeter here. So, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve kinda had a busy couple of weeks, what with getting editorial postions at Graphic Smash and Clickwheel. Up until now, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve kinda been a down in the trenches type of webcomicer, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure a lot of people donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know who I am. After the last few weeks, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m having a hard time being sure of who I am. (In the best possible way.)
I thought after all of these happenings IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d make my first post for my guest week a little get to know each other.
SoÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ come here often? Yeah, nice place, isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it?
Can I buy you a drink? Cheers.
Hey, why donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t we continue this below the fold, where itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a little more privateÃ¢â‚¬Â¦

Copy/pasted from Warren's post at The Engine:
Who wants to be a Rocket Pirate?
Joey Manley talked me into curating a mass webcomics site. I've known Joey for getting on for six years now. It's partly my fault that he got involved with comics at all. I suspect this is his revenge.

Yep, the worst kept secret in webcomics is I (Tim Demeter) have succeeded T Campbell as the new editor of Graphic Smash. My new lord and master, Joe Manley, and I are just getting to know each other, so I thought I'd step up and say hello.
As long as I'm plugging stuff, while at the Chicago Comicon this Friday I will be ducking out of the show for a bit to swing by the studios of Fearless Radio to do a little interview with them. It's an internet channel so be sure to tune your computer in at about noon on Friday to hear me talk about GS and all kinds of other stuff.

The new editor of Modern Tales is Shaenon K. Garrity, creator of Narbonic, Smithson (with Robert Stevenson, Brian Moore, and Roger Langridge), and L'il Mell and Sergio (with various collaborators). Shaenon makes her living editing comics for the publisher of the most popular comics in America, Viz, and spends much of her time as a volunteer staffer at San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum. I've met only a handful of people whose knowledge of the comics form -- from Windsor McCay all the way through to Pants Press -- matches or exceeds Shaenon's (let's see ... there's McCloud, and, um, um, um ... yeah, so McCloud's pretty much the only one). Shaenon's comic Narbonic was the runaway hit of the Modern Tales launch line-up, and remained the most popular feature on the site from day one up until she moved it over to Webcomics Nation just a little while ago. She is also the scariest person I know -- but in a good way. We are in good hands.

Anybody going to be there? Stop by and say "hi!"
I'll be at table 3135B in Artist's Alley, right next to fellow movie webcomickers Tom Brazelton and Joe Dunn.
I'll be bringing:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ A 48-page portfolio of Multiplex strips (not for sale); it's just printed out on a laser printer, but I figured I should at least bring some for people to read, even though I don't have any comics to sell this year. I just read through it to check for any errors, and I love that you can see every little detail in the print-outs, as opposed to them being on the web.
