Who Are You? An interview with Bengo & Pug

whoareyouWelcome to “Who Are You?”, the Webcomic Overlook’s first foray into interviewing people involved in the business of webcomics. This feature was actually going to go by a completely different name, but I had The Who on my iPod playlist this morning. You might call it fate.

Decoding Mr. Roboto: An Interview with Chris Harding

Chris Harding was kind enough to do the February cover art for ComixTalk and it gave me a great excuse to hit him up for an interview.  Harding is the creator of the new webcomic We The Robots which offers a cynical, bemused take on work and family.

February 2008 Will Be ComixTalk's 5th Anniversary

I'll try not to mention this everyday for the next month, but damn!, it'll be 5 years of ComixTalk (i.e., Comixpedia Classic) this February. That is a long time and a lot of people who had a hand in writing for this site. It's also been a lot of web-wrangling for me, but with great power comes great yadda yadda yadda...

Anyhoo - here's a link to the very first issue of Comixpedia ComixTalk, and if you're really curious, a link to the archives of the entire first month of news and views at the site.

UPDATE: I couldn't resist putting up Chris Harding's cover for this issue a few days early.

Saturday Interlude

A big thanks to Steve Troop for this month's cover art depicting a Blank Label Comics board meeting in session... :)

I'm also going to plug We The Robots which is a good read with a short archives - it's office humor but somewhat darker and more complicated then say... Dilbert. Over December, its creator Chris Harding posted a very funny cartoon not really based on the comic although the artwork is very similar. Anyhow if you missed it before you should click read more to see it

ComicPress 2.1 Released

ComicPress 2.1, the latest version of ComicPress, accomodates the new Widgets and Tag features introduced in the last two major releases of WordPress as well as various other improvements.

ComicPress continues to help webcomic creators create their websites and publish their comics with WordPress. Modified versions of the theme are now seen at such Webcomic sites as Scott Kurtz's PVPonline, Chris Harding's new We The Robots, Warren Ellis' upcoming Freak Angels and even the creative use of it for a comic podcast as seen at Around Comics.

The theme is attractive enough to be used as is, but simple enough to be customized the way you want it with a little CSS know-how. By creating your website with WordPress, you are taking advantage of one of the most popular and well-produced content systems as well as tapping into its vast amount of support and its wealth of addons.

  • Neil Cohn writes about recent research on eye movement across the comic page. The research shows that for an average of 8.5 panels per page, there are an average of 20.3 fixations. Most of their study focused on panels that were skipped over for one reason or another. Two types of changes to the page showed significant effects in decreasing the rates that they were skipped: balloon position and panel layout.
