The Web Comics Company is a weekly podcast for webcomic creators, readers and anyone else interested in the fields of writing and drawing for the web.
Why are web calling ourselves ‘The Web Comics Company’? That is answered in our pilot episode. Basically, we had the domain name ‘webcomics.co’ and it looked so much like Web Comics Co. that we felt we had to incorporate that into the title. It’s not any claim to authenticity, legitimacy, superiority, or anything like that. It’s simply a name that fit the domain.
Our contributors are based in the UK and Ireland, bringing a different perspective to most webcomic podcasts. We are:
Matt was born in 1983 somewhere in the middle of the north of England. Ever since he’s been oblivious to the fact that he’s been meant to be growing up. Once upon a time a few years ago he got together with one of his best friends who convinced him that his doodles really should be on the internet, and Moo & Keo was born, a silly webcomic about two friends finding their way in an amusing world of cuteness.
Luke Healy was born in 1991, and is probably a totally cool guy. He began publishing his first webcomic Pint Size Pixel in july of 2009. It was not good. Swanny Nook is his second webcomic, and luckily, it is much better. Luke has had his work published in multiple comic and art anthologies. In his spare time, he attends college to earn a bachelors degree in journalism. He does not have his priorities straight.
Luke Surl peaked in 1987 when he briefly held title of “world’s youngest person”, only to lose it mere moments later. It’s been pretty much downhill from there on in. On the way down however Luke has managed to pick up a Chemistry degree, found a Comic Creators group in Cambridge and convince someone to pay him money to sit in front of a computer in Oxford and push buttons in the right order. Luke kind of forgot to ever name his comic, and so by default it appears to have become synonymous with him – his thrice-weekly cartoons can be found at Luke Surl.

Born in 1980, Zoë was doomed to indoctrination into the ultimate kids cartoon shows. As a result, she became a comic strip artist from an early age. Since then, she has worked in almost all areas of the media. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, an honours degree in Law and runs her own publishing company. She produces All over the house and The Life of Nob T. Mouse from Monday to Friday, as well as Ink Proof Cannon whenever she can, because you can never have too little sleep.
