The Makeshift Miracle
Jim Zubkavich isn't "oldest school webcomics" but he's awfully darn close. His debut webcomic, The Makeshift Miracle garnered instant notice online at the time. Ironically, despite the intentional use of limited colors in the comic, the coloring is one of the things I remember most about it. Zubkavich has also been a heck of a nice guy to comics, sharing his knowledge through tutorials, teaching and a column at ComixTalk.
I got a chance to do an interview with Jim this month looking back on The Makeshift Miracle and looking ahead to 2009.
