Heh, I'll bite. I know it's bad etiquette to nominate yourself, but I gotta throw it out there. My apologies for the intrusion.

RE: Comics inb Print

To save repetition, are there any groups you've already got listed? I could rattle off a good list from Keenspot, or from the comics with Plan Nine anthologies, but I suspect you'll have most of those already.

Wow! Excellent response, thank you all!

To answer the one question: No, I don't have any active list. When the article comes due, I'm probably going to dig through the piles of printed Webcomicky goodness I have around the house and add whatever hasn't shown up here yet. That includes Sluggy, Bruno, Pewfell, Kevin & Kell, Sinfest, Wandering Ones, User Friendly, Ozy and Millie, Scary Go Round, Chopping Block, Exploitation Now and a small mountain of others (including lots of Gene Yang and Kazu Kibuishi).

So if someone has lists of Keen* printed comics or Plan9 comics that started as webcomics or whatever, I'd be happy to have them.

Thanks,

Might as well mention mine. I'm writer/artist/layout on everything (editors for me = proofreaders. What the old stick-builders and lead-sheet punchers used to do, and which computers haven't learned how to do yet. We still need meat-eyes for that).

www.moderntales.com - More Comics - then Stinz.
www.moderntales.com - More Comics -- then Enemies and Friends.

Available at: http://www.stinz.com/home/stinz/newsouls.htm (My company, a Fine Line Press, offset printed by Consolidated Press.)

And I just noticed I didn't mention it was originally at Moderntales. Which I will rectify asap.

"Pithed" is presently running daily -- it's Desert Peach #31 (www.moderntales.com -- More Comics -- Desert Peach).

It will be published in 64 color pages in color as a POD from the Amazon-affiliated company Booksurge.com -- along with a full Desert Peach prose novel (about 300 more pages).

Comics distribution through Diamond, FM International, Cold Cut. Mainstream distribution will be through Baker and Taylor, Barnes and Noble (both of whom are totally getting their electronic FMC!) Borders, Amazon.com, and direct sales (for readers, retailers and distributors) through Booksurge.com

And as usual, like I do for every book, I'll submit for the Pulitzers. Well, hell, someday I might get lucky...

RE: Webcomics...now tangible

Oh, and I almost forgot...

Another one, that was up at www.moderntales.com - more comics -- Enemies and Friends (got that last one backwards -- a LITTLE dyslexic sometimes..) --

Final book, again offset press at Seattle's Consolidated Press:

Are you interested only in book collections or are those merely the default assumption? Arthur, King of Time and Space is one of several webcomics reprinted in the conventioneers' fanzine The Nth Degree. Among the others are Partially Clips, Bob the Angry Flower and Perry Bible Fellowship.

Well, the list of contributors for the third DrunkDuck anthology was announced just now so technically all the people on it are going to be in print (if they haven't been already.) Don't know if that's what you're looking for though but you can find the list here. There's 16 of them in total so I don't know if you want me to list them all in that numbered format you wanted. ^^;;;

Note: there is no online preview of the webcomics in the hardcopy book--my server crashed and a lot of the files had to be recreated for print. I've been too lazy to re-establish what was lost, so I simply began a new chapter of the, um, "book" online.
