I've had to tackle some under-the-hood site maintenance and that's delayed another feature articles update. Hopefully tonight!
In sporadically researched news-for-today:
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
ComicsMix links to a funny parody/mashup called Calvin and Jobs.
Comics Reporters catches news of the exact date of the end of For Better or For Worse, sadly concluding with the just-doesn't-work plot of the wedding of Anthony and Elizabeth... (well unless creator Lynn Johnston has secretly viewed FBOFW as a story of great tragedy all along...)
Journalista! catches interviews with Cul de Sac creator Richard Thompson, Candorville creator Darrin Bell, The Araknid Kid creator Josh Alves, and Pictures for Sad Children cartoonist John Campbell.

This week is a guest comic week at Silent Kimbly.
Today it started off with an AWESOME comic by comic book superstar Mike Wieringo. Who's drawn Flash, Fantastic Four and is currently drawing Spider Man. Here is what he said about Silent Kimbly:
I've enjoyed the web strip SILENT KIMBLY by Ryan Sias for quite some time. It's a very funny, gentle and sweet strip that usually involves a cast of very cute characters in scenarios that illustrate a play on words. Ryan is an incredibly imaginative guy and a terrific artist. Recently he contacted me to ask if I'd be willing to draw a guest strip for him, and I was happy to comply with that request. Ryan just posted the strip I drew, and I've posted it here as well, but click the link and head over and read his SILENT KIMBLY archives. You'll discover how wonderful a world Ryan has created.
and here is what i say about Mike W:
Today's guest comic is by one of my Favorite comic book artist. Mike Wieringo. He's best know for his run on the Fantastic Four, and is currently the artist on Friendly Neighborhood spider man. So I was Amazed when I learned he was a fan of Silent Kimlby. He was kind enough to draw me this GREAT comic, I colored it for him and I think the results are Fantastic! : ) I love how Kimbly looks, her hair and her outfit. All the character look great!!Honesty this is one of the coolest Kimbly drawing's I ever seen. I love it so much, I can't thank Mike enough.. It's AWESOME!!

Just a little update on stuff from the Lunchbox Funnies world:
A collective, loosely defined, is any sustained grouping of webcomic creators. What they do together varies greatly from group to group. Some are largely a peer group offering each other critical feedback and encouraging support. Others throw in cross-promotion for each others' work. Some build a collective brand with logos, advertising and a central website. Some share business experience and expertise in areas as varied as merchandise, books, conventions, hosting and website creation.
And what did I find from my research? There's a tremendous number of collectives out there (and that I never want to attempt another "survey" article again). And, oh yeah, checking out collectives can be a great way to find excellent new comics.

The full list of nominations for the upcoming WCCAs is out - get the list here or click read more (the WCCA site is slow today so I copied it into this post here).
In his hilarious comic, Wally & Osborne, Tyler Martin has been educating us about Antarctica in a delightful way. In this interview, Martin enlightens us about life, liberty, and the unlikelihood of polar bears at the South Pole.
What's your background?
Currently it's a JPG of a cat with a transparent CD spindle cover over its head and a caption that reads "Going to the moon, brb".
Oh, you mean... yes. I thought that was an awkward way to start off.
