    Great show! Very informative for anyone who is thinking about putting (or indeed just has put) his first comic online. Was also interesting to learn how you started out doing your own webcomics. And let’s hope Royal Mail will indeed offer personalised stamps in a not too distant future.

    So glad more people are getting turned on to the genius that is Smuf. 😀

      I really like it and would love to see more but after all this time, could a sequel or continuation live up to the values I have attributed to the original? Maybe it would be Star Wars Episode 1 all over again.

    You touched on a lot of subjects that are really helpful to people just starting out in webcomics. That was great.
    One thing I personally have found encouraging is when people leave all their earlier work up somewhere on their site so you can see how much they have progressed as sequential artists or comic creators. It does no harm to have them in the back shed of your website somewhere where only those of us thirsty for reminders that everyone sux at first (we hope) will seek them out.

    Will you make an @ComicCo Twitter account to announce Podcasts?
    Will you be able some day to do one Podcast a week instead of two weeks?

      I love when artists do that too! I always relegate my old stuff to a deviantart account when I begin to feel it has no place on the site.

      I’m glad you liked the show, Jande. I’m not sure we can say at this stage whether we’ll ever go weekly because right now our schedules don’t really mix well enough for that to happen on a regular basis. If that changes in the future, we’ll consider it.

      With regards to twitter, we now have an account there. It is WebcomicsCo.

    thank you for that — I hadn’t updated for ages, and you reminded me how much fun it is. I was inspired to add a new comic to my site.

      Welcome back to the world of webcomics. 🙂
