Webcomic Beacon #11: Open Forum Discussion #2, and Rene Engström Interview!

The candy is 50% off, and we had another open forum for this week’s show! We maybe mentioned Valentine’s Day, but we also talked about The Nominees of the WCCAs (vote soon!). We also interviewed Rene Engström of Anders Loves Maria *NSFW*! Also Brett Hainley rants about online dickery in his Casually Ramblings. Diana Nock gives us a review of Hold My Life, and Aarin Edwards gives his Impression of Stupid Robot.

NOTE: I want to apologize for the coincidence of Rene being on, as well as the Casual Ramblings statement on Something Awful (as Rene is an active member). Brett was given free reign of his subjects, and while heated, I choose not to censor his segment. However, this was not an intended correlation, and not meant to insult Rene in the least. I did apologize to Rene personally, and it’s water under the bridge. – Fes


Notes: Some other sites and webcomics mentioned on this week’s show include: The Best of What’s Left, Meiosis, Minus, Bear and Kitten, Cooties, Quitting Time, Coffee Time and Across the Way, Comixtalk.com, Comixpedia.com, and tons of comics listed as the nominees to The Web Cartoonists’ Choice Awards.

Webcomic Beacon #9: Developing a Style

What’s the difference between drawing in a style and not drawing well? We talk about developing a style and come up with a few different approaches. Brett Hainley Casually Rambles on the subject. Our Interview this week is with Brock Heasley of Super Fogeys! Again we have Aarin Edwards with honest Webcomic Impressions of Thick Pie and Calamities of Nature.
