HYPE: The prequel comic to the movie Inception is pretty good actually.

INTERVIEWS

FROM THE MAILBAG

Steve "Fabricari" Harrison writes "After taking a couple years on hiatus upon completion of my webcomic Fabricari: Ad Hoc, I've decided to cull together all of my Fabricari related comics and art in preparation for some sort of omnibus thinger. I've re-lettered and posted issues one and two online.  As a bonus, I found a fifteen year-old uninked short story, the very first Fabricari comic; I inked it and also posted it on my site. It's a weird collaboration between my 19 and 34 year old self. It's a bit weird, but I couldn't be happier with the results.  And coming soon: The re-scanned, re-lettered pages from issue three!

Sam Costello writes:  I've got a new Split Lip site - now on its own domain at www.splitlipcomic.com.  The main benefits of the new site are that the art is much bigger (about a third bigger), which makes for a much nicer reading experience. It also has a blog from me. It's got all 31 Split Lip stories - nearly 500 pages of free horror comics.

Christopher Baldwin writes about his wonderful (not just my opinion - check out the io9 review) new science fiction webcomic, Spacetrawler which has been running since January of this year.

I am planning it to be a 3 year project, with one book per year (it runs twice-weekly, so approx 104 pages per book). It is full color. The books will be divided similar to the Star Wars movies, where each stands alone but there is also an over-arching plot.  Although a gag strip, there is a lot of depth in character and plot. And the cast is large enough that it took me about 5 months just to fully introduce everyone. Now that I have, things have begun happening en force, and judging by the comments on my page, people are loving that.

TRANSMISSION X IN EFFECT

  • Jesus! Sin Titulo is killing me with the suspense. This is one intense webcomic.
  • Luz: Girl of The Knowing is such a well done comic it almost gets me past the fact that it is largely a public service message.
  • Ramon Perez's Kukuburi was one of the best comics of 2007 and I'm really looking forward to where it goes this year.
  • The Abominable Charles Christopher is hard to describe sometimes. Charming most of the time, it's a glimpse into the animals of the forest and the sweet yet apparently not to bright yeti that lives among them.
  • Kissing Chaos is graphically inventive but a little bit underdeveloped on the narrative front at this point.
  • I can't tell where Raising Hell is going - a romantic comedy set in a horror movie or a bit of a send-up of horror movies - either way it's another fun read with good pace, two solid main characters and nice artwork so far.
  • The Port is sort of interesting, but exploding demon cats are kind of silly really...

AWARDS

Milestones

  • Missed it but earlier this month Bryant Paul Johnson celebrated 8 years of his fantastic comic Teaching Baby Paranoia.
  • I think Nukees is hitting its 11th anniversary later this month... wow!
