I got a chance to do short interviews with Sara Turner and Jerzy Drowd at SPX this past weekend.
Sara was there to promote her new comic The Ghosts of Pineville. They also had a print collection of The Replacements, a webcomic that originally ran on GraphicSmash.com that Sara worked on with Jerzy. Jerzy and Sara put out a lot of their work under their Make Like A Tree banner where you can also find out more about what they're working on.
Jerzy was there to promote a new minicomic, Tiny Hamiltons, that he did with his wife Anne. He also let slip that he's already written another volume of his webcomic The Front although it sounds like it won't be until next year at the earliest that we'll see it on the web.

I'm on the twitters sometimes if you're interested in smaller, faster updates (also to be honest, I don't always remember to post here what I've tweeted).
iWebcomics: iPad? While it doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well as the Jesus Tablet, it'll do. My quick reaction? I think this should be an excellent consumer device for consuming media; I don't love the content-type control Apple has asserted over it's app store and I think any potential reasons for such control are much less defensible for a device such as this. I also don't like Apple's failure to support Flash - this device should be open to complementary programs to the traditional browser environment. I'll grant you that version 2 in another year will probably be a better deal but I think this product meets my imaginary expectations for a webcomics tablet. Not sure still about the pricing but at least it's better than the pre-announcement rumors. As far as comic apps for the iPad, it looks like Comixology got the first press release out the door.
Code: Brad Hawkins posts some details on what will be in version 2.5 of stripShow, which is a add-on to WordPress to run webcomics. I can't remember exactly now, but the birth of the first version of stripShow either predates or is pretty close in time to ComicPress and has also continued to evolve - can't wait to see the new version.
Act-I-Vation Nation: Paul DeBenedetto interviewed comics/webcomic auteur Dean Haspiel last year at the Baltimore Comicon; he just posted the video though:
Around the World in 80 Blogs
A lot of Zuda news at Robot6: an interview with Josh Alves, creator of the webcomic Araknid Kid (started at Zuda, finished at Sugary Serials) and the new webcomic, Heropotamus; and interviews with all of the creators in the January edition of Zuda (aka Webcomic Powerball).
