The Harvey Awards, which have moved to Baltimore Comic-con for this years award ceremony, is now accepting nominations via a ballot that can be downloaded from their webpage. This year there is a new category, "Best Online Comics Work".
For the first time in several years, you'll note a new category on this year's ballot. In following with the results of a recent Referendum which appeared on an earlier Harvey ballot, you'll see the first-time inclusion of Best Online Comics Work. During the past year, we've had several discussions with professionals regarding the growing importance and diversity of online work. Any comments you'd like to make concerning any future revision/expansion to this category would be appreciated.

The schedule has been finalized for this yearÃ¯Â¿Â½s Web CartoonistsÃ¯Â¿Â½ Choice Awards. We're hoping for a great year with some exciting changes. So please keep watching the website at www.ccawards.com for more details.
The process will begin on May 15th when the nomination round begins. At this point, eligible cartoonists will be allowed to register and begin choosing nominees based on their work within the previous year. The nomination round will run until May 29th.
Ted Slampyak broke into the comics scene in 1989 with The Case of the Beguiling Baroness, published by Caliber Press. This story turned out to be only the first in his stylish adventure series, Jazz Age Chronicles, which followed the blueblood adventurer, Clifton Jennings, and the blue-collar private eye, Ace Mifflin, as they pursued supernatural criminals in 1920s Boston. Soon after, he went on to work on projects like Quantum Leap and Neil Gaimanâ€™s â€œMr. Heroâ€, as well as providing illustration and storyboarding services.
In 2002, he returned to his roots, with The Power of Silas Rourke, a new Jazz Age story, and one of the original strips to run on the Modern Tales sister site, AdventureStrips.com. After the unfortunate demise of AdventureStrips.com, Ted remained with Modern Tales, repurposing his JazzAgeComics.com site as a single-creator subscription site, and the official home for Jazz Age on the web. The current story, No Escape updates weekly (the current strip is always free), with pages from his original Beguiling Baroness story and other extras added to the member section throughout the week.

Bill here, your resident image jockey for Comixpedia, and the occasional brains behind much monster mashing. I'm up early most mornings, and often in a rush, but I make time to read a few of my favorites before I hit the shower and go on about my day.
1. American Elf by James Kochalka. I'm a big fan of Kochalka's Sketchbook Diaries, and I really enjoy being able to experience it day by day. Sometimes it's brilliant and sometimes it's inane, but that's life.
3. WIGU by Jeff Rowland. I came in late for When I Grow Up, but just in time for Jeff to reinvent himself with WIGU, which has been one of the most consistently strange and funny strips on my reading list. Who doesn't love a potato made of poison?
4. Man Man by James Duncan and Matt Shepherd. Even if I weren't related to one of the creators and good friends with the other (no bias here), I would still read Man Man every morning - particuluarly since the recent revamp. Although they have irrevocably affected the way I look at cheese and meat, they still manage to make me laugh.
5. Ornery Boy by Michael Lalonde. Though Michael only publishes one or two strips a week, I find myself looking forward to finding another update notice in my email. Ornery Boy and Dirty Girl are kind of the every-boy and every-girl of the Internet. Besides, if you subscribe you can be a "moody bastard."

A.P. Furtado's Modern Tales comic, Judging Man, ends its summer of fun tour this Friday, August, 29th. Brought on as a 14 episode summer, fill in comic, Judging Man is a sarcastic and hopefully thought-provoking look at life on the big blue ball we call home.
Tip a glass, shed a tear, and see us off as we cruise on into the webcomics sunset. But...if you can't stand a Friday without a little something by A.P. Furtado, you can head on over to www.tweencomix.com for a Friday dosage of TWEEN. This Friday a new chapter begins in the ongoing "Bad Mojo Saga."
What happens when you put a half-dozen of webcomics' brightest and most vocal brains in a vegematic set on "inquisinate"?
Well, we put Chris Crosby, Joey Manley, Mark Mekkes, Chris Morrisson, BoxJam, and Scott McCloud in a chat room together with an inquisitive Damonk, to see what would happen. The result was a frothy milkshake of a chat interview that focused on awards for webcomics and their value or worth in the webcomics community.
If you're into grey matter milkshakes, or some cool, refreshing idea-sharing, than read on to see what these pureed brains had to say...
damonk: Five more minutes, and I'm starting this puppy.

I'm trying to come up with valid nominees for this years Cartoonist choice awards, but I'm tellin ya, it's hard!
Being a webtoonist myself, I don't get around to reading a whole lot of toons. I read a few, scan a few, occasionally hear about some, and time permitting, think about others. But there are too many to keep track of. So i'm asking my comic readers to suggest nominees for all catagories. I figure, they'll have ideas that i've never even heard of. as for some of the catagories this year, there is a nice variation of themes, but they got rid of the character catagories?!! no best supporting character anymore? I thought that was great! best villain, best cameo. those were all very clever and it's sad to see them go. but maybe they will pop up another year eh?
