The Webcomic Beacon - updates Fridays
« on: December 06, 2007, 09:28:09 am »
The Webcomic Beacon - a new Podcast



The Webcomic Beacon is a new netcast hosted by myself (fesworks.com) and Tanya Higgins (betapwned.com), and we are hosted on xepher.net.

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!

You can "call-in" by leaving about a 30 second sound file to WebcomicBeacon-at-gmail-com or try to leave a voice mail for "Fesworks" on Skype.

We'd love to hear what would would like to say and think about this issue!

CONVENTIONS! We all love conventions don't we? We have a special guest host for this week, Stan Yan, who has a number of ongoing projects, and we'll even be interviewing him as well. We welcome Casual Ramblings from Brett Hainley, and no impressions because nobody e-mailed us this week, but Tanya brings us a Webcomic Review of Jazz and Jess.

This weeks show clocks in at about 50 minutes.



Please "CALL-IN" or e-mail a message to us with a question or comment about this week's topic, or next week's topic!

For next week, we will be talking with Mark and/or Frank from the WCCA Committee about the Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards.
