The webcomics blog about webcomics

Let’s Play Catch-Up, Shall We?

Catching up first with a friend of webcomics in general, and Fleen in particular: Rick Marshall — who along with Brian Warmoth successfully de-suckified Wizard‘s website and was dejobbed for his trouble — has landed at ComicMix, where he is contributing up a storm and taking on the position of Online Managing Editor. Heidi’s got the press release, we’ve got the good wishes, and Esbat apparently got the Marshall genetic legacy. I think that’s what they call win-win-win-win.

Catching up with other news:

  • Greg Carter reminds all and sundry that Atlanta Comix Expo is this weekend, and he and Gina Biggs will be representin’ webcomics there, and conjunction with Dark Horse releasing the second graphic novel of Biggs’s Red String. And in a rather generous act, Carter also reminds us that also this weekend, two states to the north, Jennie Breeden and a mess of other webcomickers will be at What the Hell? Con this weekend with a ton of other webcomickers; look for strips including Carter, Biggs & Breeden doing con prep to show up at the site of Satanic Porn soon.
  • Lori Henderson of the Manga Village portion of Comics Village would like you to know that there’s a competition on. You (yes, you!) could see your manga-style webcomic published online and in print, including distribution to UK bookstores, and through Diamond. Details here.
  • I’ve been seeing lots of links around webcomicdom pointing back to The Scienteers in the past month or so. There’s a reason for this: the people that do the scienting have decided to merge the idea of webcomics collective with the idea of webcomics news site, with a particular emphasis on exposing little-known creations. Want some exposure? Send ’em announcements & news, and submit comics to be run on their website. Details on submitting news and comics here and here. Bonus points for especially good scientication.

Far too kind, as always… but thank you for the shout-out, Gary!

I’m still getting things organized and recruiting contributors, but once things settle, I’m looking forward to making webcomics a big part of the ComicMix scene. In fact, the ability to do so was one of the main reasons I joined up!

Oh, and as for that ‘Land of the Lost’ image, remind me to kick you in the shin next time we get together, wouldja?

Thanks for the mention about our humble little site, we’re still getting situated and getting things together, but we’re very pleased with how much attention we’ve received so far. :D

[…] the news coming folks, we’re doing pretty well now. We’re getting mentions on Fleen, Journalista and Comixtalk! David’s e-mail does make me wonder about doing webcomic reviews […]

[…] (Fleen) in the shin next time I see him for posting that “Land of the Lost” image alongside the story he posted about me. It was one thing to raid my Flickr account, but this, sir – This Means […]
