State of the ComixTALK update
Working on a WordPress-powered version of the site on a development server. Had out the MySQL book last night trying to write queries for moving over a few of the tables from Drupal to WordPress.
Patric Lewandowski gave a 20 minute talk on ideas about comic theory he first explained in a series of articles he wrote for ComixTALK in 2008. You can see the video of Patric's presentation at his website.
After the one webcomic (Girl Genuis) in ComicRiff's "Best Comic of the Decade" poll kicked serious tail, ComicRiff decides to hold a "Best Webcomic of the Decade" poll. They're looking for nominations if you're interested in helping them out.
I got a press release from Brad Guigar this morning announcing that subscribers to Webcomics.com are eligible to get tables in the Webcomics Pavilion area of the Chicago's Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) for a special creators' discount of 15%. According to Brad that's a total savings of $60 – which is pretty nice (and more than the annual $30 subscription fee to the site btw). This is very smart — if Brad can leverage the new community he's building for partnerships and other promotions than that certainly adds a lot of value to joining that site.
