500 strips for some, missed updates for others

Yesterday Theater Hopper hit the 500 strip mark, tomorrow Sam and Fuzzy will do the same. Congrats to both Tom Brazelton and Sam Logan on producing quality strip with such longevity and regularity.

EDIT: I just discovered Questionable Content also turned 500 on Monday. Congrats to Jeph Jacques as wells. Sorry I missed you.

The Daily Grind Iron Man challenge had two contestants fall out yesterday. Chris Crosby of Superosity and Yu-Jay Huoh of Abrandoned kids both dropped out ending almost two and a half months Continue reading


Web Comic Wrap-up

I felt bad last week that we were not keeping up with all the news, but that was before I tried to find some to post today. It’s as if almost nothing happened and everyone went on vacation. What could have possibly caused that to happen? At least I know now it wasn’t the turkey.

Frank Miller – He may be one of the younger gods but he’s still a god among us mere mortals. So what does it mean when he joins up with Hideo Kojima to release a digital comic? The new “Metal Gear Solid BD” will coincide with the launch of a ?digital comic? version for the PSP.

    Congratulations to Jerry & Brenna on the birth of Elliot Jacob Holkins.

    Balancing the arrival of joy and music into Tycho’s life (in spite of Gabe’s proclaimed efforts to keep him as dour an miserable as possible) we must say farewell to Greg Holkan, artist of Gossamer Commons and Other Good Works.

    Gossamer Commons is a webcomic written by Eric Burns and he does a great job maintaining a compelling narrative episodically while Bringing the Funny.

    I look forward to seeing what’s in store for the next chapter and how the new artist holds up under terrifying scrutiny.


    Webcomic PVP in Full 3D

    Readers of the popular webcomic Scott Kurtz’s PVP can find a pretty interesting treat in today’s strip. After a recent request to his readers, Scott received a new 3D logo for his site. The initial logo was a three dimensional computer generated model, but soon after Scott made use of that image another reader, Joseph Kovell, took the concept in a different direction and sent him a logo that was 3D in the old blue and red paper glasses sense. Along with the logo image, Continue reading
