A freewheeling discussion about the wide world of webcomics with Eric Burns, Wednesday White, Phil Kahn, Giland Pellaeon, Bob Stevenson, Ping Teo, Daku, Karl Kuras, Doctor Setebos and William G, moderated by Xaviar Xerexes.
You may have noticed that in 2005, the "webcomics blogosphere" took off like never before. There were almost as many people writing about webcomics as making them (okay not really, but there were a whole lot more blog posts about webcomics this year.) We gathered together several popular bloggers for an online roundtable discussion on webcomics here at the tail end of 2005.
We talked about webcomics and creators, art and commerce and of course, webcomics drama. Plus some predictions for the year ahead.

When's the next massive Blind Date -style event that Damonk will go insane trying to orchestrate?
I figured that since the Jam was kick started, this sort of thing wouldnt be too far behind? Right?
In the days before I discovered webcomics, I worked an office job where I generally had at least a couple of hours each day when there simply wasn't anything useful for me to do. Of course, I was still expected to look busy. I couldn't exactly put my feet up and open a book. In fact, when I wanted to read, there was really only one place I could go. And that was â€“ you guessed it â€“ the bathroom. Yes, I confess â€“ I too have spent many hours hiding in the loo with a book.

Can you accept that? And if I or someone else promises that it'll be much better than the "original" product, would you believe it?
Say like Megatokyo. Fred Gallagher's comic's basic gist is that two Americans got stuck in Japan and have adventures. If I would to take that same plot, I would move the story into a different direction, and oversee my characters doing stuff like challenging a tsunami, barfighting with expatriates not unlike William Beckerson, having an ex-girlfriend stalking them, put rampaging flamethrower-wielding Scottish-accented chickens & so on.
No problem. However, how do you deal with people who complains about the "similiarities" between two or more comics, and how would I convince them that that's where those "similiarities" end?
