Comixpedia: How did you first get a start in comics?

New Comic: The Nonstandard Assembly

Jon Towers, the man behind Jonny Axx has started a new comic that challenges the status quo of what a webcomic crossover can be.

State of Comixpedia

I hope at least some of you enjoyed (and got) the in-jokes that made up our April Fools' Issue. If you got at least three of them consider yourself a webcomics community insider, privy to the darkest secrets of the kingdom. A big thanks in particular to Dave Wright for the Chopping Block banner - I'm a sucker for anything parodying FOX. We had lots of help from others too, but they've all joined the witness protection plan.

Two months of Comixpedia - we've published more than 250 articles and news updates and we're hovering at about 340 members and uncounted guests. Comments on our coverage (or the lack of it!) are welcome - you can always email me at xerexes at comixpedia dot com. My response time varies on my inbox volume but I do respond.

Next week we have the community moderated R Stevens interview, with answers!, an interview with Derek Kirk Kim, reviews and columns by BoxJam and Iain Hamp.

Chopping Block Back!

The reclusive Lee Adam Herold, rumoured to be working on a CB book, has returned to post two new webcomics (here and here). This is a big deal to Chopping Block fans currently in deep freeze during Herold's hiatus.
