Tuesday Afternoon Updates
Submitted by Al Schroeder on August 2, 2005 - 15:58
News from two directory/top list sites: Buzzcomix has started up again, with a new look and interface at the same URL, http://www.buzzcomix.net; and Online Comics announced a new category system for its webcomic listings. Webcomics can now be listed there in up to 2 genres, 2 art styles, and 2 formats.
The Comic Reporter reports that there will be no Wizard World Atlanta in 2006 (and hopefully a 2007 version will be scheduled not to conflict with Heroes Con).
If you're interested in the UK Small Press scene check out the revitalized Bug Powder blog which sometimes includes webcomic news.
ANd from BLOGVILLE!, here's a nice piece of praise of Wapsi Square from Hospitalville. Johanna Draper Carlson notices the launch of WebcomicsNation. Pelogrande points out that today is the birthday of both filmmaker Kevin Smith and comicmaker Josh Lesnick.
UPDATE: It looks like buzzComix is down today. No word on why yet.
