Renee French's entry was published on Serializer.net (and nowhere else as far as I can tell). Since serializer.net is still down hopefully publisher Joey Manley can give Ms. French a link to a temporary locaton for the comic.

Ted Rall's book series on alternative comic strips turns its focus to online comics in this third installment, titled "Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists," now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
In addition to samples of each comic, the book features extensive interviews and memorabilia from the creators' lives and early efforts.
Joe Zabel is both a webcomics creator (most recently he finished The Ice Queen: A Trespassers Mystery) and the founder of The Webcomics Examiner. I really enjoyed our conversation - the topics ran all over -- from Joe's webcomic work to Harvey Pekar and journal webcomics to the future for webcomics in general.

Cartoonist and commentator Ted Rall is turning his attention to webcomics in his third Attitude anthology, due out in June 2006. Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists will feature the work of twenty-one cartoonists publishing their work over the internet.
A Lesson is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible has attracted a lot of attention with its vibrant, often extremely colorful art and its surreal style. This interview with its creators is very in keeping with the spirit of the webcomic.Al Schroeder rang up David Hellman and Dale Beran, the creators of A Lesson is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible for an online chat about their groundbreaking webcomic. After a few technical difficulties getting started, we found out that David and Dale share an appreciation for Carl Banks, Czanne and Zelda III.
A freewheeling discussion about the wide world of webcomics with Eric Burns, Wednesday White, Phil Kahn, Giland Pellaeon, Bob Stevenson, Ping Teo, Daku, Karl Kuras, Doctor Setebos and William G, moderated by Xaviar Xerexes.
You may have noticed that in 2005, the "webcomics blogosphere" took off like never before. There were almost as many people writing about webcomics as making them (okay not really, but there were a whole lot more blog posts about webcomics this year.) We gathered together several popular bloggers for an online roundtable discussion on webcomics here at the tail end of 2005.
We talked about webcomics and creators, art and commerce and of course, webcomics drama. Plus some predictions for the year ahead.
A simple list of people of webcomics based on their contributions to the medium in 2005. And we have no doubt that we left off someone we shouldn't have. We're sorry. We'll try harder next year.

The Small Press Expo is all about the art of the comics medium. Comics from every type of genre, style and format. It's the face of the comics medium without the distortion of the obsessive focus on the superhero genre most comic conventions would give you.
Plus, it's been well infiltrated by webcomics creators.
I spent all of Saturday at the convention this year and at times the floor was fairly crowded. Unfortunately since then I've been away in the Golden State and just didn't have a chance to write up a proper feature on it. So consider this a bit of a rambling remembrance of people, moments and most importantly, comics.
(And there's a lot of pictures after the jump so it'll take more than a second for the full page to load.)
