The X-Heroes: "Bringing Superheroes to a slow, grinding halt."

Hello everyone. I just joined this site and am enjoying it's serious look at the world of webcomics. I was wondering if I could give a plug/call for critique for my comic The X-Heroes over at Drunk Duck. It's a kind of twisty superhero comic:

A Call to Destiny now Mirrored on DrunkDuck as well.

After a bit of thought I decided to Mirror the Comic on DrunkDuck.com. This was a decision I made to boost a bit of traffic and Also to get more folks looking at my stuff.
Anyway, If Drunk Duck works better for me I might move there instead...Or I will just keep mirroring.

Tidbits of a Drunk Duck

I do a recording of DrunkDuck news for The Gigcast every week. I'm thinking of using this blog like I do with the DrunkDuck LiveJournal community by posting highlights every so often.

Unfortunately I can't find DrunkDuck in any of those Categories options. It's not under Topics, Collectives, or Publishers. :( So I guess I'll slip it under...comics reporting?

And Finally Monsieur, A Wafer-thin Webcomic.

Post-Turkey Day looks like slim pickin's for news but here's what we've got:

Not to stir the Most Read Project pot more (plenty of discussion in the thread on the subject of measuring webcomic readership here) but every webcomic host that publishes some kind of "popular" list is another potential data point for the project. This Drunk Duck list is described as "most read strips for the past seven days" (there is a second DD list for "story" comics):

UPDATE: I have to believe, based on a long tradition of Little Gamers mocking Comixpedia, that this strip was inspired by our recent discussion of measuring webcomics' audience size.

SOME WEBCOMICS I READ THIS MORNING

  • Lucid TV really deserves a spot on the Most Offensive webcomics poll we're running this month. Brutally-funny, medically-flavored comedy.
  • Michael LaLonde's Ornery Boy probably is the only webcomic featuring a zombie MC. Today's strip is one of the funnier raps he's penned for the strip.
  • Guest month at Todd and Penguin with comics from guest creators such as Jamie Robertson (Clan of the Cats), Phil Cho (Skinny Panda), and Paul Southworth (Ugly Hill).
  • If you changed the color of the splotch of lipstick red on Clango's chin and neck in today's Diesel Sweeties to black, you'd have Clango's evil twin brother Bango. Well it could happen!...

End of 2006 Coming Soon

December is traditionally a "year in review" kind of issue at Comixpedia and that's the goal this time around. As we get closer to the end of 2006 it's revealing to look at what folks were writing about webcomics at the end of 2005: The 2005 Webcomics Roundtable.

For the last two years we've also ran a special "25 People Of Webcomics" list article. Here's a link to the 2005 POW List article. Who do you think should be on this year's list? Post a comment with your nominations.

(From Lines and Colors) Line Rider is a Flash interactive that allows you to draw a line that represents the two dimensional topography of a hill. When your line is drawn, you click play and the Line Rider, a small character on a sled with a trailing scarf, will go sailing, bouncing and, if you’re not careful, tumbling down the hill according to forces of imaginary gravity.
