Over at Webcomics.com, T Campbell posts the top webcomics for March, based on Compete and Alexa rankings. As usual, caveats and analysis follow. Also posted on WC.C lately: Elanor Cooper interviews Sarah Ellerton, creator of Inverloch and The Phoenix Requiem, and Alexander Danner plays “where are they now” with four webcomickers who have moved on to other projects.
I wish I had been able to get to this: Gary Tyrrell reports on the graphic novel symposium Splat!, and Karen at Pen in Hand posts her illustrated notes.
Rick Marshall of ComicMix talks to Wes Molebash about his Zuda experiences so far.
At The Webcomic Overlook, El Santo has a very thorough and entertaining review of the print version of Laugh-Out-Loud Cats, which we discussed briefly in our most recent podcast.

Not a perfect solution obvioiusly, but it’s a start. I may have to return to my evil lair and work on this.
