So you draw and/or write a webcomic?
No matter how good you are, there's always something more to learn. One way to learn is to read a lot of webcomics. You can also learn a lot from countless free tutorials created by some truly talented artists.

Scott McCloud put up an awesome rogues gallery of webtoonists. It's like a Most Wanted Poster of Webcomics...
Scott Kurtz shares his Comicon experience. From Tiffany Taylor to the Keenspot panel, Kurtz weighs in.
Also PVP has run an eclectic guest week(s) recently - today's strip is from Greg Dean.
I am of the opinion that all webtoonist wannabes could greatly improve their skills if only they took ONE stroll up and down the aisles of the San Diego Comic-Con's Artists' Alley.
This summer there have been a lot of movies coming out in the theater that I am looking forward to seeing.
In about six months.
Where I live, movie tickets are now $8.50, or $6.50 with a student discount or at a matinee showing. So depending on circumstances, my wife and I pay between $13-$17 to go see a movie. For that price, we will also get the pleasure of seeing 10-20 minutes of commercials before our actual film begins.

A quote’s been bandied around the comic industry that makes me smirk “I don’t have fans, just people after my job.”
Christopher Baldwin has been drawing Bruno since 1996, and Bruno has been one of the most consistently-updated comics online. Baldwin, who just announced he'll be moving to Washington State and likely taking Bruno with him, was working until recently for a data entry company. He's decided to take the opportunity to regroup and work on a new project that he'd like to see syndicated.

Scott Kurtz talks to Sequential Tart about PVP and collaborating with Frank Cho.
Japanese culture has so thoroughly melted into American culture that we can't always tell where one ends and the other begins. Speed Racer, Godzilla, Voltron, and Tranzor Z are nostalgic for millions of Americans, almost a part of "Americana." Weightlifters train by eating sushi. The Matrix seamlessly blends Japanese martial arts and Eastern philosophy into Western cyberpunk and American car chases. Japan makes our cars, our computer parts.
Nowhere does the Japanese voice speak more clearly than in the true avant-garde, the avant-garde of comics, the Web, and especially of webcomics.
MegaTokyo blew up almost immediately when it appeared on the webcomics scene three years ago. Fred Gallagher, the creator behind the strip, goes by Piro, a nickname he took only temporarily. A former architect, he now lives on the spoils of the site's merchandise.

This week's storyline at PVP is apparently a riff on the recent business issues faced in a very public way by Fantagraphics. The character of Skull returns to the Graphamaximo storyline that Scott Kurtz introduced last year that created a bit of publicity and controversy.
