I built a "library" of webcomics and creators back in the fall of 2005 which I put into beta before realizing it was too much editorial work to deal with and the same information could be better provided through the community edited webcomic wiki - COMIXPEDIA.
Nevertheless looking back on the assortment of names collected (some from me, some sent in from you) I wonder if anyone has any significant updates on these creators 18 months later. Maybe we should interview some of them?

T Campbell, who's filing stories for Broken Frontier these days, has done a plethora of podcasts this year, calling up and interviewing a ton of interesting people and posting the audio (most recently T talked with Tim "Destructo" Demeter, the editor of Clickwheel and Graphic Smash as well as the creator of the comic Reckless Life).
I wrote a short post pondering why I don't listen to more podcasts but it started to sound a bit too negative. Instead let me ask - how many of you listen to the various comic-related podcasts out there and what do you like and dislike about the format (and the quality of current efforts)?

Tonight the gang will be talking about the recent DVD release of Casino Royale and all their favorite Bond movies!
A collective, loosely defined, is any sustained grouping of webcomic creators. What they do together varies greatly from group to group. Some are largely a peer group offering each other critical feedback and encouraging support. Others throw in cross-promotion for each others' work. Some build a collective brand with logos, advertising and a central website. Some share business experience and expertise in areas as varied as merchandise, books, conventions, hosting and website creation.
And what did I find from my research? There's a tremendous number of collectives out there (and that I never want to attempt another "survey" article again). And, oh yeah, checking out collectives can be a great way to find excellent new comics.
