Fes Works is joined by Mark Savary, Kelly Turnbull, Arne Schulenberg, Eric Kimball, Jason Dunstan, and Tom Szewc for this… sad but very real possibility for most webcartoonists. That’s right, you’ve gotta know when to fold ’em, and put your webcomic on an indefinite hiatus… or… to simply quit. An absolutely enlightening discussion.
To Be Clear…
The “old format” of The Webcomic Beacon will officially retire on it’s 6th anniversary: December 6, 2013.
We’ve had a great 5+ years, and we’ll end with a “final hurrah” this Fall 2013:
The Webcomic Beacon’s “Top 100 Favorite Webcomics of All Time” four part series, a retrospective episode, and likely one last contest or giveaway with a “Semi-Finalé” episode .
The Webcomic Beacon (as it has been known) will go out with BANG!
The comic news and discussion episodes will persist as long as there is interest, over the summer and beyond the 6th anniversary. There may be occasional topic or interview episodes over the summer, as well.
From here on out, the focus of The Webcast Beacon Network will be in expanding content to outside the podcasts themselves; as well as looking at the creative drive and process in multiple mediums. I will be scouting for content contributors, as well as new podcast affiliates.
Anyone that thinks they could help out with the WCBN or WebcomicZ in some way can email webcastbeacon-at-gmail.com or webcomicz-at-gmail.com. Though I will be looking into adding a content submission form as well. Any new creative-focused-podcasts, of differing medium focuses, could also try to court us, but I’ll be looking for a variety of factors for when looking at new affiliate programs (or even regular content producers).
So, hopefully Webcomic Beacon listeners can catch up on their backlog of episodes, as we slow updates until Fall 2013.
