â™¦ Mpd57 briefly covered Brother of Bronze Hammer and Witch Phase. Webcomics Critique looked at the example of George last Friday and Robot Beach last Tuesday.
â™¦ Optical Sloth covered Rock That Never Sleeps and The Airy Tales along with a bunch I have no idea how to summarize, a number by Trevor Alixopulos and Runx Tales. Pigs of the Industry looked at Robot 13â€™s new release.
â™¦ Thought Bubble interviewed Frank Quitely and Charlie Adlard. A Nickelâ€™s Worth asked those twenty questions of John Kovaleski in which question eighteen struck me as gold star stuff.
â™¦ Lots of good stuff from ComixTalk â€“ a new comic from a previously unknown source? A Xeric award winning comic collected into a graphic novel and then we also have Arthur, King of Time and Space hitting the 2000 strip milestone. Letâ€™s not overlook The System comic reaching 300 strips and Addanac City getting to 400 as well. Congrats to all!
â™¦ Bleeding Cool offered up a preview of Forty Five, Red String Volume 5 is now available for preorder and Dana Simpson won the Amazon contest.
â™¦ This Week in Webcomics goes into a well deserved and thoughtful pause but canâ€™t help still bringing us good comic stuff.
â™¦ William George makes a great point about idea units that should be required reading. (Scroll to the bottom for that part.) Lonely Panel breaks down collaborations and crossovers and the planning they require.
â™¦ Copyblogger talked about blogging souvenirs and some other key ideas that may help comic creators turn a profit from their online work.
â™¦ Fishbones gave us another peek into a ball point pen and blue pencil comic creation process while Michael May gave us the ABCâ€™s of Awesome. We can also see some places to find digital tutorials on TWCL. Before and After continues on and there was an interesting discussion about standard webcomic sizes.
â™¦ I wonâ€™t get a chance to listen to it much before next Monday night but the Webcomic Beacon has a podcast covering Plot Lines and Pacing while Spwug had a good idea about promoting your favorite webcartoonists.
â™¦ Finally, can you join the valiant Star Org and contribute to the success of the Last Resort?
