The title of this post is slightly off. Webcomic drama as we used to know it never really went away. In fact, it’s been growing behind the walls, not daring to spread out. There may not be large message board battles like the time that one guy took on that other guy back in Ought Five, but the seething hatred in the community still thrives...at least for two well-know creators.
Theater Hopper by Tom Brazelton is a webcomic sort of, but not entirely about Tom, his wife Cami and their friends. The creator, Tom Brazelton (as opposed to his four-color alter ego) is coming up on six years of the webcomic. Neither fatherhood nor the Star Wars prequels have stopped the man from making fun at and with the movies. Over the last couple of months I interviewed Tom about the webcomic, his third print collection and other necessary pop culture topics.

I think in the digital world it's probably wise to always keep up with how other forms of expression are adapting to the web. Comics in some ways has been far ahead but it doesn't mean there's not learnin' to be had from music and movies and whatnot.
