Webcomics Workshop

"...a web comic can be compared to self-published print comics in that almost anyone can create their own webcomic and publish it. Readership levels vary widely; many are read only by the creator's immediate friends and family, while some of the largest claim audiences well over one million readers. Webcomics range from traditional comic strips and graphic novels to avant garde comics, and cover many genres, styles and subjects.." - excerpt from wikipedia.

- There's a wide range of webcomic innovations today. You must explore, discover and support your favorite artists and writers! Note: The information below was put together as a brief synopsis and resource during a talk about webcomics at Ithaca College May 2015. Some links may already be out of date but information may be useful to anyone interested in the craft of digital comic books and online sequential art.
