Everybody Feel Good For DJ

DJ Coffman wins the Comic Book Challenge!

Details here and here. Good luck with the book, DJ, and make sure you have fun with it.

Good job, D.J., but can you meet an even bigger challenge …

Getting Yirmumah back on Fleen’s “A Good Start” list?

Seriously, congratulations, D.J.

yeah, they lamely took it off saying that the list was suppossed to be for “discovering” lesser known strips…. oh, you know the ones, like on that list there, like PVP and Penny Arcade.

I think they just don’t like me. I mean, c’mon! One more little “Y” entry way down at the bottom? What gives guys!???


Heh. Yeah, I agree with you, the list makes no sense, and not merely based on your comic’s absence. What I continue to advocate is that besides a representative sample of the independents, “A Good Start” should include a list of collectives (Dumbrella, Blank Label, Dayfree, Keenspot, Modern Tales, Boxcar, Hyena, Eyeskream, and whatever else I’ve forgotten) so that a mouseover will reveal a dropdown menu of the comics in that collective. (Yirmumah will still be part of Boxcar, right, D.J.? Or are they the little people you crushed on your way to the top? :-)

About 19 or so comics in the current “Good Start” would get put in dropdown menus, freeing up room for more independents, including some of the more obvious omissions such as [insert your favorite comic here].

But does a certain Sybase instructor/author cum webcomic blogger listen to me? Nooooooooo…

Ooh! Ooh! Like my comic!

Har har.

But for real… it depends on the software they’re using to build the site. Sometimes those fancy dropdown things are tough to do properly, especially making them so they appear “right” in every browser.

No, they had it up there and took it down and told me they were listing comics that needed name exposure. I demand Yirmumah be listed back on there! hahahha

I have a feeling my demands will fall on deaf ears! I command theeeeeeee!!! hahhahaha

True, but Fleen’s publisher is Phillip, the czar of DumbrellaHosting. He seems to know what he’s doing, if the nifty dropdowns over at Goats are any indication. And I’m sure he’s not busy. No, not at all. Bwahahaha!

I know, dude, I’m on your side here.

You could achieve your plan of world conquest in any case simply by posting to every Fleen thread. :-)

They don’t even COVER comics that need name exposure…

Originally, they used to cover obscure comics that I’d never heard of, but now it seems to be “QC” this, and “Narbonic” that… whatevs.

[…] Gary After having what was probably intended as a joke land with a thud in this Comixpedia thread, DJ Coffman (who ironically drew the picture you see right up there) got into a sizeable flame-fight. We’ve seen this sort of thing before (and I’m not speaking solely in reference to Coffman here): pissed off people breed ever-higher levels of off-pissedness, which in this case Coffman felt compelled to continue in Lea Hernandez’s blog after the Comixpedia thread got locked. Coffman reports that the target of his original comment, Girlamatic editor Lisa Jonte, followed up with contact to Coffman’s to-be-publisher, Platinum Studios, bringing a real-world component to the Internet Drama. Just life in the modern age, right? […]

[…] D.J Coffman’s been in the news a lot recently, both for good stuff and bad, and he’s always been a willing victim friend of Fleen’s. So when I decided to get back into this crazy little world, at least on a limited basis doing interviews, he’s the first creator I thought to contact. […]
