has disappeared. Except for the about, contact, navigation,
and most important, the donation
page, there are no Christmas suicide balloons or Winter solstice parties. I just found out via this Comics Journal thread
and I wonder if there any other favorite web cartoons of mine that are about to bite the dust.

Ever since Jeremias
turned me on to Achewood
back in November,
I've been hooked. Some of y'all at that time objected to Chris Olmstead's drawing style, which is, admittedly, an acquired taste. Well, now in the interest of not doing as much work, he's given popular character Ray
a weekly advice column, "Ray's Place." Bearing in mind that Ray is a self-centered cat with a swingin' lifestyle, this almost redeems the whole well-worn format of Internet advice column.

Same Difference, Derek Kirk Kim's
great online comic has come to it's conclusion. For Kim it's been "2 years. 79 pages. 9 pens. 2 countries. 3 computers. 4 residences. 6 conventions. 725 lonely nights." But for us it's been nothing less than the slow episodic revelation of an amazing talent. I love his elegant line and the depth of his characters. It's funny as hell, but touching enough to make you cry.

is a new site dedicated to discussion of webcomics news. The Comicon.com Pulse
is normally a comic book news site, but they're currently running an interview with Keenspot Prez Chris Crosby.
Are webcomics finally getting some decent coverage?

What happens when crude Flash animation meets an absurd sense of humour? The surreal serial Weird Emma
, that's what. If Emma's not up your alley, maybe you'd prefer the static cartoons of Wulff Morgenthaler

Yumm... not WTC related.
Like Penny Arcade? Wish for something a little more 'fresh and in your face'? Then start eating some butter covered bacon and check it. Bonus points for constant Mac references.

From PVP Online's Forums:
"If we do wage war, will we be any better? What happened today, 9-11-01, was atrocious and could not be justified by any means. However, how could we justify violence while abhoring it?"

When I Am King
seems to be the latest supercool discovery in online comics. This guy updates weekly, and he's got 18 episodes so far.

is the most recent web-comic I've stumbled across (thanks to a link off Penny Arcade
a few days back) and is also one of the best. The catch? No pictures.

Now whenever someone posts crap about the state of MeFi, you can successfully use the phrase, "That's such whipped meme".

I'm impressed with Scott Kurtz' latest rant.
I've never really found User Friendly all that funny, and I think Scott's point is part of the reason why. Something that I find much funnier is Silicon Alley
, because it pokes fun at the industry itself, from the inside. Although I wish they'd give the user control of the panel flipping on Silicon Alley...
