Links: Opportunities for creators and readers alike!

The Cartoon Art Museum is planning a show called Monsters of Webcomics, which they describe as “a showcase of cutting-edge webcomics work.” They have already selected the ten headliners, but other creators are invited to submit their work for inclusion as well.

And here’s a call from an artist who wants to turn your dreams into webcomics.

David Pepose of Blog@Newsarama interviews Sin Titulo creator Cameron Stewart, and Sean Kleefeld discovers that the comic is coherent when you read it backward as well as forward (and he has an interesting discussion of why that is).

I’m hearing great things about the print version of Bayou. Here’s a Jonathan Kuelein’s review from the Toronto Star.

  1. “Isn’t iTunes the iTunes for comics?”

    I don’t think so. When was the last time you read a comic you downloaded from iTunes?

  2. Umm… last week? I actually read quite a few comics on my iPod Touch, and more are coming out every day.
