I will be floating through the hallways of SXPXO, possibly armed with audio and video recording equipment. (We'll see...) Now is your chance to check in with the Walter Winchell of Webcomics Journalism (that'd be me...). Plus you can see a fine list of other folks if you can make it to Bethesda, MD (north of Washington DC). There will also be a webcomics panel hosted by Steve Conley and John Gallagher.
If you are coming and want to say "hi" feel free to email me (at xerexes at comixpedia dot com) and let me know where you'll be. I will be there for most of Saturday and Sunday.
Free from the stranglehold of syndicate and newspaper editors, webcomics have the luxury of unfettered imagination, allowing creators to develop their characters however they wish, catering only to their own (and presumably their readers') whims. The protagonist may be a lighthearted loveable oaf, a brooding anti-hero with deep psychological scars, or a seductive vixen with dubious motives.

Another edition of Narbicon (behind MT subscription wall), the convention celebrating all things Narbonic. Shaenon Garrity's devoted fans held their fest in Minneapolis this year and they have the pictures to prove it!

SPX 2003 returns to the Holiday Inn Select in Bethesda, Maryland from September 5th through 7th, 2003.
(9/5) Friday: 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
(9/6) Saturday: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
(9/7) Sunday: 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
If you did not participate in 2002, whether as a fan or an exhibitor, you missed a lotâ€”don't be left out in 2003. 2002 was another fabulous year for the show. Attendance on Friday and Saturday was over 2,000 attendees, along with dozens of printers, distributors, retailers, and other industry professionals. There were over 315 people registered as exhibitors and we sold over 150 exhibitor tables. SPX has a unique format of only selling exhibitor space to independent publishers and not to retailers. This provides a very intimate and friendly atmosphere for our creators and fans to mingle. At the same time, there's a wide array of programming for all to enjoy.
Admission: One day pass is $8.00 ($5.00 for showing your Alternative Press Expo badge) and a weekend pass is $15.00

There isn't a description posted on the Otakon site, so this might be anything from a academic discussion to a flamewar.
However, if you happen to be around, it might be worth attending.

It seems to me that comics tackling sports is somewhat rare. NBAddict by Richard Rempel is a weekly webcomic poking fun at the NBA, basketball and its players. Right now it has some kind of pseudo-Pulp Fiction plot going on but if you dig through the archives there are plenty of stand-alone comics worth checking out.
