Joe: July 28, 2003:

It's almost here! Yes, one more update until Otakon! Speaking of which, I'm excited, yet calm. I don't really have anything planned comic related as far as the con goes, so I guess there isn't any stress over prepairing for things. Basically, my agenda for the con is:

  • Do anime/manga related stuff
  • Buy anime/manga related swag
  • hang out with friends
  • have fun

If any readers out there want to be a part of any of the agenda items above, post to the forum and we'll see what we can work out.

On the comic related front, it's interesting how some people perceive the nature of web comics. I'm starting to get annoyed at the people who seem to continually lament that the field of web comics is being saturated and polluted by "crap" (when put mildly). The way I see it any person who takes the plunge and posts his or her works for all to see deserves some respect. People who have started a web comic have taken a big step towards becomig creative, which IMHO not enough people choose to do in their lifetimes. The people who criticize seem to forget that artist (which I use to describe anyone who produces creative works of any type) are not born artists (for the most part... I guess there are exceptions to everything). The path to becoming an artist is a long and arduous one. And from what I've seen, the best way to get good at anything is to keep doing it over and over... prolifically. One of the things I am constantly amazed at about web comics is the progression seen through the archives. Some such comics are Close Capion and Spork Rivers. Both of those comics are done by some very talented people who show a tremendous amount of promise. So, to all the comikers out there who may be feeling discouraged, hang in there... and to all the complainers, just shut-up. If you don't like what you see, no one is forcing you to look at it.

Weekly WebComic Feature

Since I won't be using my rantspace for a few weeks, I thought we should put something else in here each week, instead of one stale rant. So every week, we're going to feature a webcomic that we think is pretty spiffy and that you should most definitely check out.

So this week it's:

Have you ever wished you could see the future? Well, maybe it's really not all it's cracked up to be, as Dominic Deegan will tell you after a hard day of dealing with some of the local idiotic clientele. Having a good mix of drama and humor, this comic deserves attention.
