- It has been brought to my attention that the Comics Reporter's list of the Top 50 Comics of 2006 contained more webcomics than I'd noted. French superstar Lewis Trondheim's Les Petits Riens and Mazen Kerbaj's Kerblog, as well as potentially two entries published by The Guardian by Joe Sacco and Posy Simmonds.
- For Comixpedia readers who have been following Jon Morris' Plea For Hand-Lettering there is an interesting thread on The Engine by Comicraft founder Rich Starkling which delves into a discussion on both classic lettering and the pitfalls of creative teams. Eddie Campbell also takes on the subject on his blog.
- Kristoffer Straub, and a host of other notable creators, have attended the Emerald City Comicon. Straub was part of a webcomic business panel together with Brad Guigar (Evil Inc.), Robert Khoo (Penny Arcade), Scott Kurtz (PvP) and Bill Barnes (Unshelved. Unfortunately Straub found the panel somewhat disappointing.
Emerald City was a great con, but the panel was a greatâ€¦ lame thing. The trouble was that we didnâ€™t talk about much business, and the con-installed moderator was kinda like â€œso whatâ€™s a webcomic? Whatâ€™s your favorite color?â€
