Online Comics Day 2007 Site Launched Today
Submitted by kirabug on May 1, 2007 - 15:44
Online Comics Day is May 5th - the same day as Free Comics Book Day. The site has a rich tradition, and we invite you to participate on our new site in our new format. For those of you unfamiliar with the site, past incarnations have essentially been a hub where comic creators all created Online Comics Day comics that linked to the hub, and the hub in turn linked back to randomly-cut lists of the sites. (More history is here. The main goal of having a comic hub site was simply to say, "Hey, look! People are writing comics! And they're posting them on the internet!"
Having listened to much of the feedback from last year's event, we decided to try something *very* different this year. We decided to make the site this year about more than just a hub site. That functionality's still there, but we also created some stubs -- stories that invite you, the comic reader/writer/author/artist/fan, to tell us about how you currently support online comics, and about upcoming events where you will be spreading the word to readers and non-readers alike.
Please come join us in celebrating online comics on May 5th. Registration is now open and we're looking forward to seeing you.
