Xerexes Tuesday Morning Updates

Gossamer Commons needs your guest strips (and maybe resend them if you already did one because Eric had a slight hard drive problem).

So you might have noticed we’re having a webcomic jam/comic book giveaway this month. The writer of Dead Eyes Open, Matt “Sinbad!” Shepherd, has wrangled most (all?) of the webcomic events sponsored by Comixpedia and we know that he’s a heck of a witty guy. The artist, Roy “Orbinson” Boney, Jr. did a cover for Comixpedia. Be sure to send in those zombie comics for the jam because besides the chance to win something, we’ll be showing a random selection from the jam entries on the front page here, starting later in the week.

I have not dived into the widely praised Sam and Fuzzy webcomic yet but this insightful post on it by Occultatio is pushing me to do so. Plus the post has “Moonlighting” in the title. That’ll always be my favorite tv show (it’s like Star Wars to me and the group of friends I had in highschool if that makes any sense).

Last but not least, the Comics Reporter catches newspaper comics taking a page out of the webcomics playbook as Blondie starts a three-month crossover with other dinosaur comics on the newspaper pages like Beetle Bailey, Garfield, Dick Tracy and the Wizard of Id.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.
