Tag! It’s A Meme

Okay, so it’s well known that just about everybody associated with the northeast (US) webcomics scene has been in Overcompensating at some point or another. Knowing a good thing when he sees it, Jeph Jacques started a round of Webcomicker Cameo Tag here, and Rene Engström (my Pretend Internet Girlfriend) tags back here, with the Little Gamers crew getting in on the game here. I was going to make a joke about Rowland being Sweded, but decided against it. Ball’s in your court, webcomics — drop one of your peers into your strip, join the game.

In other news, congrats to Matt Boyd (whom I still owe a beer) & Ian McConville for two years/100 strips of wildly varying art styles at Three Panel Soul.

Speaking of TPS, McConville points us towards this webcomic which has nothing to do with Iraq’s president. Rather, it has everything to do with what my vaguely-remembered high school French believes is cute adventures in a well-rendered manga style, with occasional forays into physics. While it’s true I once picked up a bilingual pun in a Jim Jarmusch movie, at present I’m really only able to enjoy the pictures. See if you can do any better.

The Portland webcomics scene just got a little cameo-ed: Dylan Meconis, Jenn Manley Lee, Bill Mudron and Barry Deutsch all turned up in this latest CulturePulp installment.

Maliki is part of the french “Blog-BD” scene, which is what we have instead of webcomics over here. Since the stories are slice-of life told in the first person, lots of people assumed it was autobiographic, but it turned out it was made by a guy. I always find this kinda unsettling.

I guess:

I’m ahead of my time, then, the way I’ve based a few characters in my Daily Grind strip on characters from some of the other strips in the Daily Grind contest. http://hyniof.livejournal.com/75803.html will give you most of the particulars, but since then, I’ve also introduced a character based on Gulius from Ryan Smith’s recently completed “Funny Farm.”
