Strip News

I had this post all set to go a few days early with plenty of material. Then in the last few days there’s been a flood of things going on. If anything else interesting happens, I’ll comment on it next week.

  • The folks at the Webcomic Collage were nice enough to link me, but even if they didn’t I would suggest all comic creators head on over and get involved. It’s a good idea that I’ll be watching.
  • You’ll Have That is coming to an end, so if you’ve ever wanted to check it out or purchase one of the actual comics – do it now.
  • What’s going on with Comic Mix, anyway? Here’s some speculation.
  • Looking to print your comic? Which service should you use? Comixtalk has a post about it.
  • Comic Book Resources talks about the Iverse. I would have liked to see a bigger variety of comics available. In a distantly related development, Richard Caldwell bemoans anyone creating comics for the web. He thinks it’s a waste of time and much prefers an actual comic book – look for the paragraph that begins with the phrase “cyber-comics.” While he’s got a right to his opinion and preference, my opinion is that comic books are overpriced for what you get. They are not disposable penny candy treats anymore.
  • Wondering what it would be like to go through the process of getting your comic syndicated? Here’s a four part success story.
  • The Comics Reporter had a great post with observations about how the recession will affect comics. Overall, I think this will mean more eyes on webcomics. Does that mean that the business side of webcomics will get more profitable? Dunno, but free will have the edge on $4.00 comic books in such times. And here’s a Nifty article about what Stan Lee knows about comic customers.
  • Amazon‘s Top Ten Comics and Graphic Novels for 2008. Who would you predict is on there?
  • Marvel has a funny webcomic. It seems like it is aimed at kids but also seems to have a comic fan slant to it as well.
  • In case you missed it, ComixTalk has an interview with Phil Foglio.
  • I’d like to see more SuperArtFight.
  • Go to The Flying Friar and look for the article All the Write Moves. It’s about how comic writers and video game engineers are collaborating. I can’t seem to link directly to it, sorry.
  • The Webcomic Beacon is hiring staff. Well, not so much hiring actually.
  • I like this donation idea from Marooned. It’s much better than comic wallpaper.
  • Schwapp reviewed Misery Loves Sherman. Comic Fencing reviews Cotton Fluff Hollow. The Floating Lightbulb has a review post about the current review climate.
