Hopefully not only is Ted Rall talking to more folks about coming to United Media but the Diesel Sweeties deal shocks the other syndicates into looking to the web much more seriously. For kicks and speculation who out there in webbywoodland would you want to see get a chance at a similar deal?

Part of the "community" of webcomics is the fun of playing in a colleague's webcomic playground for a bit. The most common aspects of this are the cross-over and the guest week. A more infamous cousin is the gratuitous cameo storyline (characters used with or without permission) where for no real reason at all scores of characters from much more well known webcomics show up in yours.
I did it, you did it, hell even Bigger Than Cheeses did it. Post your links, confess your (or someone else's) sins.

Comic Book Challenge
Top 3 finalist winner D.J. Coffman brings popular webcomic Yirmumah! to Keenspot!
TV SERIES BASED ON SUPEROSITY CHARACTERS GREENLIGHTED
A new animation production and distribution company comprised of former Cartoon Network and Disney animators have ordered into production 13 episodes of Angelipups, a 3D computer-animated childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s series based on the show-within-a-strip from Chris CrosbyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s long-running webcomic Superosity. Broadcast and DVD rights have already been pre-sold to some overseas territories, and the series will be shopped to North American distributors soon. Crosby wrote the pilot script and has been commissioned to write additional episodes. Angelipups follows the adventures of a group of winged, candy-colored puppies who live in the sky and are responsible for keeping clouds fluffy. It combines surreal humor with moral and educational elements.

Er... Sinfest appears to have moved off Keenspot without much in the way of fanfare. There's a bit of a noise about it in the Sinfest forums at Keenspot, but no official communications as far as I can tell. Has anyone seen a press release or blog post about it?

I saw a similar thread over at The Comics Journal's board o fun and I thought it would make for an interesting conversation topic.
Ã‚ What was the comic(s) (print or web) that REALLY got you hooked on the medium? I don't mean something you thumbed through as a kid, but made you go "Gaw damm! They got me for life! I may even start doing this stuff myself"
Ã‚ It was X-Men #205 for me. Barry Windsor Smith did the art and the story was a self-contained tale of soon-to-be-over-played-mutant Wolverine fighting off a team of cyborg baddies in a construction yard.

it really depends on the amount of detail in a page (notably, the number of different characters i gotta draw) - but usually it can take 4-5 hours for a drawn/ fully coloured/ web ready page. and that's if i'm lucky. these days i try to include at least one panel per page that has a close-up of a character's face cos that helps cut down on the drawing time overall.

Hey all! This is my first time posting...I need some help in making a decision!
I've been making a weekly strip for a kid's paper (aimed at ages 8-11, basically) called Battle Academy. It's a lot of fun to do...humour, action, martial arts, dodgeball...got everything I love to draw and write about. It's also in color, and basically would update once a week (can't do anymore because my workload otherwise is massacre!).
You've got your standard Motif and then there's your Leitmotif. You look like a Leitmotif type to me. What's it going to take to get you into a Motif today?
