In amongst posts about Comics International being sold – expect a press release very soon — I’ve also just been in touch with Sean Michael Wilson over at Boychild Productions and via his fab comics site, discovered Comixpedia, which includes a magazine about online comics and describes itself as “a community-edited site devoted to complete coverage of all things webcomic-related.” Another site with a growing directory of web comics to sift through…

I’ve been busy where I can adding a few new features to the downthetubes main site over the weekend, including a couple of reviews by Jeremy Briggs on the 2007 Commando calendars and Alison Bechdel’s controversial Fun Home graphic novel by Robyn Talbot.

The recent addition of Mike Gent’s feature on Roy of the Rovers has also drawn some good traffic. If anyone fancies writing similar pieces for the site on other characters, please get in touch

  1. Thank for mentioning Boychild Books John. you got to the Comixpedia site from a link on ‘Webcomics nation’ isnt it?

    I can recommend Wecomics nation as a good place to host online/webcomics. Its quite cheap and the system is fairly easily to use, and looks good at the end.

    By the way I have recently set up a blog myself, under my own name of Sean Michael Wilson.
