The Webcomic Beacon - a new Podcast

The Webcomic Beacon is a new netcast hosted by myself ( and Tanya Higgins (, and we are hosted on

It is a netcast designed by and for webcomic lovers and novice creators. We hope to do a weekly show with a weekly topic, interviews, webcomic reviews, and call-ins!

Our first show is up (and hopefully properly running), titled "So you want to make a webcomic?"

We discuss some points on what some newbie webcomickers should consider, look out for, do, and not do. Brett Hainley chimes in with some Casual Ramblings of his own on the subject.

This week, we interviewed Jonathon Dalton, and reviewed Abstract Gender and Planet Saturday.

So, please, check us out and let us know what you think!


The Webcomic Beacon: Episode 2

Coming in at about 30 minutes (like originally intended), we present our second episode! On the topic of "bad" art in webcomics versus it's writing, we have a spiel from EvilCouch, and another great Casual Rambling from Brett Hainley!

We have webcomic reviews of Webcomic Reviews to Ugly Girl and Kawaii Not, as well as few Webcomic Impressions of No Experience Necessary, Wayward Robot, Flapjack and Toastie, and Road to God Knows.


We would really like to get some "call-ins" for this week's topic regarding webcomic website design!
