The Return of Fred Peterson the Mighty Warlord

After a near-fatal car crash had me sidelined for a few months, I'm updating my webcomic again. If you wanna check it out, give Fred Peterson The Mighty Warlord a gander. Thanks for coming by, when I have a little more free time, I'll post something better here =)

Welcome Dynagirl to the Collective of Heroes

Premiere Superhero Webcomics

Hi, Folks! I'd like to be the first to welcome Cary Kelley and "Dynagirl" into the "Collective of Heroes." I was immediately impressed by this comics art and coloring, and then engaged in the storyline. Don't forget, there's a "Dynagirl" sub forum in our Forum, and I'm sure Cary would like to interact with you there.

The Webcomic Overlook #147: Journey To Mt. Moriah

The title of Scott Starling’s Journey to Mt. Moriah sounds like it should be a chapter from a Tolkien epic. You know, maybe that one chapter where the hobbits stopped for lunch or when an elf or a man from Numenor would break out into song.

Wait… Wasn’t that all of them?

MTV’s Splash Page names Ectopiary, Axe Cop, and Octopus Pie the best webcomics

As you know, the end of the year means year end lists. Everyone wants to give you their take on the best of 2010. Our latest “Best of 2010″ list comes from MTV.com’s Splash Page, the site’s blog for comic-related news. Rather considerately, they’ve given webcomics three whole categories:

Webcomic Overlook’s Webcomic Moments of 2010

Welcome to this year’s webcomic wrap-up for 2010. And what an insane year it’s been. I’ve been poring through the archives of my own site, and I have to say that even I’m pretty stunned about all the major upheavals that happened this year, both industry-wise and story-wise. It was tumultuous. It was triumphant. It was continually evolving.

The Webcomic Overlook #146: Tiny Kitten Teeth

Not too long ago, a reader took me to task in the comments section of one of my recent reviews. His comment implied that I am easily swayed by pretty pictures. It was as if a cheap, theatrical device blinded me to other deficiencies, which thus led to The Webcomic Overlook handing out inflated ratings.

Next webcomic-related salvo at the bestseller book list: Girl Genius

Phil and Kaja Foglio have faith in Girl Genius (reviewed here).

They believe the character is strong enough to transcend the comic book format.

Which is why the Foglios are retelling Agatha Heterodyne’s story in their all new ebook, Agatha H and the Airship City, a novelization published by sci-fi/fantasy publisher Baen books.

Know Thy History: Thomas Nast’s Santa Claus

Over here in the real world, I’ve been reasonably busy with Christmas-related activities. Travel arrangements, presents, decorations, the whole shebang. In the month of December, I am less “El Santo” and more “El Santa.”

SPEAKING OF WHICH…

2011 Eisner Nominations are open!

The Eisner Awards — which includes a webcomic/digital comic award that was somehow made legit this year with Sin Titulo‘s win — are open for nominations! And now that Zuda’s gone and kicked the bucket, I’m guessing that means that a new nomination spot has opened up! Jackie Estrada has helpfully included a postscript detailing what, exactly, is a digital comic by Eisner standards:
