State of Darths and Droids: It’s Not You, It’s… Well, It’s Both of Us

(From Darths and Droids. Click for full-sized things that go bump in the night.) I may be leaning towards removing Darths and Droids from my RSS reader. I’ve said in the past that Darths and Droids is incredibly innovative, taking the basic concept introduced to it by DM of the Rings and building a rich, […]

State of Ctrl+Alt+Del: Our Little Manchild is All Grown Up

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized sperm quest.) If you’ve been following just the main comic of Ctrl+Alt+Del, something happened that you may have missed. Winter-een-mas came and went. Back in November, I expressed my amazement that some people were organizing Winter-een-mas festivities at my school, complete with visual evidence. As it developed, the promotion for […]

State of Irregular Webcomic: Dispatches from the Afterlife

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized gibbering madness and destruction.) So the destruction of the universe turned out to be, in a sense, much ado about nothing. But it’s also serving as the impetus for a major change… in the short-term, at least. After ten days of white turning to blue turning to red turning […]

Two graphics examinations

I was planning on doing several state-ofs on webcomics I’m reading today. You can blame my inability to find anyplace quiet enough on campus for me, perhaps partially attributable to my growing inability to handle any disturbance to the quiet – or noise, as the case may be – for the fact that I mostly […]

Blog of Webcomics’ Identity Crisis: The Dark Cloud in “Good News”

Ursula Vernon’s Digger is moving to its own site, and Vernon treats it as a cavalcade of good news. Even the secondary announcement that Digger is becoming free is arguably burying the lead: It will also be going off subscription, and over to advertising–Graphic Smash is pretty much abandoning the subscription model. I’m pleased that […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

My eye is pretty much back to normal. Sometimes I think about stopping or restricting the RID because what comes up rarely interests me, and then come days I’m thankful it’s one fewer day of posting I need to worry about. I don’t know what to make of this. You may notice I say that […]

Argle bargle argle bargle.

So I think I accidentially poked myself in the eye last night and it’s still red and sore and anything I had planned for today may have to wait for tomorrow. Which includes some important things…

Because if I had any readers, this would be much-clamored for by now. I know I’ve been wanting it.

The speed with which this happened both impresses and … what’s the word… humbles me. (I mean, I’m being listed on this site scarcely a week after Evil Inc.!) Thanks to Komix!, you now have an RSS feed, of sorts, for Sandsday, which you can access here. It’s a bit of a stopgap until I […]

2008 Year in Review: Sports Ratings Roundup

David Morgan-Mar called me a “webcomics reviewer” this weekend. While webcomics reviews are what I do with my “webcomics” tag, I don’t prefer to brand myself with that brush, and I don’t want to go down the path of an Eric Burns(-White) of becoming primarily known for webcomics while wanting to branch into more fields. […]

Blog of Webcomics’ Identity Crisis: For the Love of Webcomics

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized abrasion of large hadrons.) It’s become apparent that my “Webcomics’ Identity Crisis” series is very much a representation of a moment in time, of the state of webcomics in February 2009. (Really January, considering the impeti for me to write it.) So here, I hope to keep a record […]
