I can't recall if Wapsi Square was mentioned in any article this month at Comixpedia so I just wanted to make sure it got some mention. Not only does Taylor deliver great art, he's developed several interesting characters and relationships between them over the life of the strip.
Itâ€™s been almost a year since our last effort to measure the webcomic audience. While in a perfect world we would have spent that time developing proprietary measurement tools capable of providing a highly accurate list of webcomic audience numbers this, in so many ways, is not a perfect world. Plus, we spent the development money on Mexican vitamins. But that alas is another story.

Well, guess that didn't work.
Anyhow, I'm new around here. Actually, hanging out here and reading til my butt gets numb is part of my preparing to launch a comic come fall. So far there's lots of writing done, and lots of character profiling done... so, getting there.
Regardless, here seems like a pretty neat resource, and I hope to learn a lot of don't before I get started. So happiness for me.
At the moment I live in Shanghai China, though I will be back in the US come mid-late August, and that will concur with launching of said comic.
I just can't depend on the ability to have consistent internet access here for me to really put all the effort into getting the comic done here now. But still, trying to make enough headway to never worry about being postless for at least the first 4 months.

This is such an enjoyable read. In some ways it reminds me of Bobbins. In retrospect, it's a bit of a surprise that it took so long for Keenspot to pick it up.
You asked the questions, and Chris Crosby and Darren "Gav" Bleuel of Keenspot answered. Crosby is the writer/artist of Superosity and the writer of Sore Thumbs, and Bleuel is the writer/artist behind Nukees. Both webtoonists joined together with Nate Stone and Terri Crosby to form Keenspot Entertainment, one of the leading publishers of webcomics.
Crosby and Bleuel talk about Keenspot's plans for online and print comics for 2004, the resurgence of the online advertising market, and drop frustrating hints about future projects.

It just hit me that not only are spiders showing up in my FANS strip, they're also playing starring roles in CLAN OF THE CATS, SKRITCH and WAPSI SQUARE. All this month.
I just find that very strange. I'm not sure what it means. Can people think of any other examples?
