I Came, I Saw, I Blogged

I'm doing a stint as a blogger for Comixpedia through the end of February, as part of their "Blogger Tryouts" period. I've been discussing mostly generic "business and art of webcomicry" stuff so far, but I'm certainly open for suggestions if there's anything people would specifically like me to write about. Check out my Comixpedia blog here and let me know what you think!

Hrm. Interesting idea. If I were in your shoes perhaps I'd have topics like:

"Just because Keenspace, er 'ComicGenesis' will give you free comic hosting, doesn't mean you -should- do a comic, here are things you should ask yourself before deciding if Web Stripping is for you..."

"Would your strip be instant fodder for MST3K"
"Wait, didn't I see this when it was called ${other,better executed strip}"
"Shooting that one-trick pony before someone finds it cute." (Preventing a single three panel gag from attempting to become a serialized webcomic)
"Scott McCloud isn't the Messiah."
"Here is how I do the strip from idea to uploaded jpeg..."

Oh, I've got a load more. But I'm being cynical.

Scott McCloud isn't the Messiah.


Blasphemy! Kill the non-believer!

You know... I've read his works.

Seriously? He's like the Ann Rand of webcomics to me.

Oh hell, I sound like an ass there. Sorry.

I've read his works, I just... had this grating "eeeh." about him, that's all.

Looks like it's using a good cross-section of your skills: English major, writer, webcomic creator.

I have to read your third entry a few more times so I can write a decent comment, but you made some good points about storytelling.
