Just something I've been thinking about lately. It seems like all of the giants of the webcomic world reached a decent size (10,000+ readers) within their first year.
So instead of telling newbies to be persistant, should we be telling them to give it a year, then try something else?
Any examples to the contrary?

There is something really appealing about the way Jeff Rowland has "crossed-over" his purely fictional webcomic, WIGU with his "journal" webcomic (imagine me making those annoying finger quotes when I say journal) Overcompensating. In today's OC, Rowland receives a call from his own creation, poisonous potato, Topato.

Three and a half months after ending the long-running comic Wigu, Jeffrey Rowland has suddenly returned to Wigu, and is once again making comics about the Tinkle family, starring the young, cartoon-obsessed Wigu Tinkle.

Every so often a fan art meme will take off in an interesting way. Lost to the Dumbrella board crash was the WIGU thread placing WIGU characters into famous art work. Still here for browsing is this thread playing off of a picture of Questionable Content's Faye drinking from a glass. Starts off slow, but gets much, much sillier.

This looks interesting. Disposable Parts is an anthology centered around robots; here's some (but not all) of the webcomic artists planning to participate:

Mohammad "Hawk" Haque of Applegeeks
Ian Jones-Quartey of RPG-World
David McGuire of How To Art
Josh Mirman of Punks and Nerds
Jeff Rowland of WIGU
Jon Rosenberg of Goats
The book is scheduled to come out in Spring or Summer of this year and you can already pre-order it.

Well week 4 of the January issue is up. That marks 24 full issues of Comixpedia. I think I can speak for all editors and contributors, past and present: "Man, I'm tired."
Week 4 gives you a column from the Damonkey Man, interviews with both Jeff "WIGU TV" Rowland and the creators of Least I Could Do and finally, a review of Bigger Than Cheeses by Desmond Seah.
February's issue takes a look outside the cozy confines of the panel to hunt down the elusive experimental webcomic. Assuming the Internet doesn't get snowed in, we'll bring you the first week of the February issue on February 7th.
Jeff Rowland is a serial webcomic creator. His first work was the old school When I Grow Up, his second the popular and well-received WIGU and his most recent work includes a journal comic called Overcompensating and a new webcomic called WIGU TV.
Read on for nine questions with Jeff Rowland. Why only nine? Because The Man wouldn't let Rowland have ten questions.
