In this special Fesless main show, Adam Smithee and Tanya Higgins are joined by Comicpress developer and webcomics man-about-town Philip M. Hofer (Frumph) to to analyze several common webcomic activities from a cost-benefit point of view in the first ever session of “Beaconomics”. Rounding out the panel are Tropecast regulars Mike Dellheim and Liz Statley. They talk about what you really get out of a crossover, why webcomic navigation hasn’t changed in the last decade, and how people who steal copies of Photoshop are really undermining civilization as we know it.
Rethinking the way that we read and present webcomics on our websites. Carter Fort (The Crooked Gremlins) and Rosscott (The System) join Fes and Tanya to discuss. A lot of great information for this show, and your feedback is most welcome!
The Webcast Beacon Network originally started as The Webcomic Beacon Podcast in 2007. In 2010, The Tropecast and Webcomic Beacon Newscast were added to the programming. In 2011, The Tropecast was made separate and Webfiction World was added to a rebranding. Thus The Webcast Beacon Network was created. We are committed to those that wish to creative and express themselves: to have fun, learn, make connections, and grow.
Right now, the site as it is, is not really ready to go. Links are not set, and the RSS are not entirely correct. However, we are working on it, and hope to have the launch soon! But you can help! If you are roaming through the archives here, please let us know of broken site links/images.
We are also seeking original music that we could be allowed to use on the show. (Podsafe or license-free). We are especially looking for LYRIC-LESS music to be somehow worked in with episodes, especially the coming Webfiction World program.
Adam Smithee, Alex Heberling,Liz Staley, and Melissa Kaercher are here to drink to your health! … or, not really, but to cover drunk tropes and to go over The Webcast Beacon Network drinking game… which is not advisable to be engaged in by anyone. Drink responsibly in general, and where legally allowed. (of course!)
