Webcomic Beacon #17: Comic Brainstorm Session #3

Fes and Tanya sit at the Round Table, once again, for a comic brainstorm session with Eric of Exiern, Thom of Crossworlds, and Gothia of American Gothic. We get down to business and crank out a lot of good information on our Primary and Secondary Characters! Aarin Edwards and Brett Hainley are out this week, but we have a guest reviewer! Mark of Autumn Lake wants to try out to be our Webcomic Reviewer, and he reviews Chronicles of Salterre.

Webcomic Milestones coming up in the next week: Life and Death will be hitting 500 comics, and Dead Days will be hitting 400 comics! Congrats!


Webcomic Beacon #16: Net Neutrality?

Brett Hainley joins us in our discussion on Net Neutrality. We mostly learn that Fes knows the least about anything, of anyone in the room. STAY IN SCHOOL! … or at least pay attention more… Anyway, this week we had it set up as an Open Forum, where we had a live broadcast using uStream. We hope to do it again next time. We ran out of time for a Webcomic Reviews and Impressions, but we have only one Milestone this week: Mr. Oblivious has hit over 100 comics!

We are currently looking for a new webcomic reviewer for The Beacon. Stay tuned for more information or send us an e-mail asking for details!

Webcomic Beacon #14: All Ages Comics

How can one find All Ages Comics? Do we read any and don’t realize it? We have Michelle and James Lehmann of Family Webcomics on the show with to discuss the whole dealeo. Brett Hainley returns to give us his thoughts on the said “school of thinking”. Aarin Edwards and Diana Nock are out this week… so no Impressions or Reviews this week. We might be looking for a new semi-permanent reviewer too, as Diana needs to focus on other stuffs.
