Talking the Talk

Guest Comics are as much a part of Webcomic Culture as missed deadlines and hiatuses (but often intended to prevent the other two)*. But occasionally there's a special reason to drag other creators into your webspace. Semi-infamous Penny Arcade artist Mike Krahulik has been featuring his young son (actually named Gabriel after his comic alter-ego) as a plot device, but when the real Little Gabe started asking about "where babies come from", he did what any successful media creator would do: "have a carousel of strangers explain 'the penis' to you while I hide in the basement". And it's an All-Star Carousel of Strangers (by webcomic standards), obviously kinda NSFW, but with NO rapewolves, thankyouverymuch. [more inside]

Artist Vs. Troll, Why can't you be both?

Gavin Aung Than's Zen Pencils (previously here & here & here) deviated from its usual "illustrating great quotes" format for a little story, "The Artist-Troll War": part one, part two, part three, part four. You can't argue with that, can you? Well, Kris Straub, whose webcomics include the pychological-horror of Broodhollow (previously here), the satirical sci-fi of Starslip and the "I was Meta before you knew what it meant" Checkerboard Nightmare, used his usually-quick-and-dirty gag comic Chainsawsuit (previously here and kind-of here) to make a response.

On The Eighth Day, Nobody Rested...

Simpsons animator and cute animal comicker Liz Climo (previously here) is currently doing her own version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" featuring her bear and bunny characters: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8 (and more to come),

Meanwhile, those always wacky and seldom subtle folks at Cards Against Humanity (also previously here) are doing "12 Days of Holiday Bullshit", as 100,000 people reportedly sent them $12 to get 12 daily gifts, also being made available online (including a special Day 8 package for comics lovers!)

A little post-Hallowe'en Lovecraftian horror.

Broodhollow is a new webcomic that has been pithily described by its creator as “Tintin goes to Innsmouth.” It’s a bit of Lovecraftian horror with subtly detailed artwork. Be sure to check out long-running companion website Ichor Falls, a “…short fiction site for the discerning horror/terror enthusiast." Great starting points include curious little thing and candle cove (previously). [more inside]
