interview: dirk schwieger on “moresukine”

August 12th, 2008 · No Comments

With all of the chaos regarding the end of my time with ComicMix, it would be a shame if one of my last webcomic creator interviews ended up being overlooked in the hub-bub – especially when the subject is the creator of one of my favorite online art projects in quite a while. Moresukine was […]

happy birthday… you’re unemployed

August 6th, 2008 · 5 Comments

As some of you have already heard, ComicMix and I are parting ways. Despite some great accomplishments with the news element of ComicMix over the last few months, I was informed today that the company is shifting its focus away from the news side of the comics industry and refocusing its resources on the publishing […]

comic-con news updatery

July 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I haven’t been able to provide much focused reporting on the show myself this weekend, as a variety of factors have pretty much cut the coverage team down to 1/4 of my anticipated resources. It’s been a week from the fifth circle of hell (look it up) and with all of the juggling, shuffling and […]

comic-con news note

July 26th, 2008 · No Comments

By the way, you can keep up on all of the ComicMix coverage of “Nerd Prom” via our handy-dandy Comic-Con News Archive. For a variety of reasons (and on a personal note), this has been one of my least-satisfying convention covering experiences to date. I’ve pretty much bounced from one disappointment to another throughout the […]
