Updates On Entries in the Ill-Fated Webcomic Directory Project?

I built a "library" of webcomics and creators back in the fall of 2005 which I put into beta before realizing it was too much editorial work to deal with and the same information could be better provided through the community edited webcomic wiki - COMIXPEDIA.

Nevertheless looking back on the assortment of names collected (some from me, some sent in from you) I wonder if anyone has any significant updates on these creators 18 months later. Maybe we should interview some of them?

All info below is circa-early 2006 (the links do work for now but will go away sometime this summer):

I am kind of hoping this will motivate some work at comixpedia.org :)

 

It was also just interested to me to see who exactly was on this list - 18 months removed you remember some names and forget others which is just sort of interesting I guess...

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.
