A Softer World

So, Webcomics?

Seems to be an awful lot of dialogue here about Drupal and the sort. But not so much about webcomics.

With the WCCA Nominations I figure everyone would be goin to bat for their favorites this year. Or is that faux pas? Editorial silence in the house?


I liked Tweep, Philip likes A Softer World and Gilead likes No Room For Bushido.

Drawn! blog points out that Dylan Meconis has posted drawings of the entire Battlestar Galatica cast, drawn as if they were on The Simpsons.  And coincidently Fleen just wrote about Meconis' latest webcomic Family Man.

Watch Adam Hughes draw.  Nice video. 

New webcomics collective emerging: Gangbunch which includes Tauhid and several others.

The Daily Mumps

Hello friends. The Daily Mumps is a daily one-panel photo comic made out of pictures of my own lousy kids. I know! A very special hell! But let's be reasonable. You try my comic, I'll come to your house and fluff your pets up for you. Deal? And if you dig it, feel free to pass the Mumps along to a friend.

Webcomics: a Medium, not a Genre Pt. 2

Thought we might continue this discussion since the forums have been renovated.

To recap: Webcomics is and should be a medium for creators to tell their stories, not unlike books, movies, theatre and video games. They are not a genre that has been defined by PvP, Penny Arcade, Keenspot and the like.

A Softer World To Be Collected in Print Edition

Joey Comeau recently announced on his blog that A Softer World, the webcomic he co-created with Emily Horne, is destined for a print collection this summer.

Third, Emily [Horne] and I have been hard at work for a month now, putting together "A Softer World: Truth and Beauty Bombs" which will be released on Loose Teeth Press, hopefully for June. This will be a perfect bound, wonderful collection.

A Conversation With Joe Zabel

Joe Zabel is both a webcomics creator (most recently he finished The Ice Queen: A Trespassers Mystery) and the founder of The Webcomics Examiner. I really enjoyed our conversation - the topics ran all over -- from Joe's webcomic work to Harvey Pekar and journal webcomics to the future for webcomics in general.

Comixpedia's List of 25 People Of Webcomics for 2005

A simple list of people of webcomics based on their contributions to the medium in 2005. And we have no doubt that we left off someone we shouldn't have. We're sorry. We'll try harder next year.
