I've met North at SPXPo - he might be the tallest webcomic creator and after reading about this split between him and Campbell I think he might be the nicest guy in webcomics too.

Marco Rosella scours the web for video blogs that interest him, and today he featured Video Fabricari! I've been checking this site out, it's a great gallery of videos that you'll want to add to your bookmarks. Vlogs are more than just a gimmick or techy buzzword, people are making an artform out of it. Check it out:

The company's always going to serve adapted, creator-owned webcomics, but for some of our upcoming plans, it needs a few properties we can call our own. Clickwheel's already taken steps to commission a few pieces which I'll tell you about in the coming weeks. Sometimes the idea would come from the creator, sometimes from Clickwheel itself. And yeah, this is pay-per-panel. The $5 per panel generally breaks down to $2 for writing and $3 for art in the case of teamwork.
This is still in the planning stages, but interested parties can contact T Campbell, the commissioning editor.

I haven't used Clickwheel myself b/c my iPod doesn't have a screen, but Jeff Lowrey at Fleen has and he offers some criticisms about the user interface. Apart from whether or not we will all enjoy reading comics on our iPods or not, making the transfer of comics to your iPod as easy as possible is probably a necessary step to Clickwheel's potential for success.

This story on the origin of Microsoft's Comic Sans font is interesting - apparently it came out of Microsoft's ill-fated Bob interface.

T Campbell blogs about the reboot of Clickwheel which publishes comics in a format designed for display on the iPod. It appears that there is already quite a lot of material available for downloading.
From reading the site it sounds like anyone can get an account to publish their comics with Clickwheel, but artists must first send sample work to Clickwheel (see the FAQ for more details.
