Trisha’s Take: How to depict female characters in webcomics

At this most recent CONvergence Con (a sci-fi/fantasy-based convention in Minneapolis, Minn.), I was one of the panelists on two different panels that sought to speak about where and how women can exist in formerly male-dominated genres and spaces. In The Smurfette Principle in Marketing panel, we tackled the idea that there isn’t often a […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: “Zufruh” by Ryan Sohmer and Anna-Marie Jung

I don’t know how many people here read Ryan Sohmer’s edgy/adult-ish webcomic “Least I Could Do,” but it’s been one of my daily reads since I was introduced to it by my friend Harris O’Malley (aka Dr. Nerdlove). Also, after discovering the Vlogbrothers and posting about their very first webseries “Brotherhood 2.0,” I became a […]

Trisha’s Take: The next step in fixing the “Mike Krahulik Problem” at Penny Arcade

My reaction when I feel backed into corner is to be an asshole. It’s essentially how I defend myself. It’s been that way since was in elementary school. I’m 36 now. Maybe it’s finally time to try and let some of that shit go. —Mike Krahulik, explaining how he reacts to criticism on Twitter. When […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: “The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage”

If you were to ask me where you could find a webcomic which tells the tale of Charles Babbage’s self-proclaimed war against street musicians, I wouldn’t have had any recommendations for you… until now. With its tongue lodged firmly within its cheek, I present to you this short story arc out of “2D Goggles or […]

Comic Non-Sans: The Column in 2012

I’ve been writing this column for a while now.  It started as a look at individual webcomics and corresponding trends, then personal observations, then peeks at the business side of webcomicking, and now it’s become something of an odd mishmash of all of the above. I’d love for this column to be helpful to our […]

Comic Non-Sans: MarsCon Wrap-Up

MarsCon is the first convention I ever attended, starting in 2000 when I was a college freshman and didn’t understand the whole “convention” thing.  I guess this makes it my Lucky 13th year attending, for what it’s worth.  It’s stayed pretty much consistently good over the years, which is saying something for a middling-sized “relax-a-con” […]

Comic Non-Sans: Watching your goals

This week’s article is a bit more offside even than usual, which is saying something.  With con prep and the beginning of a new year and a reevaluation of how I spend my time, I’ve realized I need some serious help getting myself in gear. I’m a gamer and very achievement/goal-oriented.  I imagine that, as […]

Comic Non-Sans: Everyone does New Year’s Resolution articles.

I think at this point it’s become a bit passé to tell everyone about your resolutions, and then to couch it in a blog article to make it sound like stellar advice.  Well, all right.  If Neil Gaiman were to offer his list of resolutions as a writer, or if Jonathan Ross were to offer his […]

Comic Non-Sans: The Growth of the Ask Blog

I still consider myself very new to Tumblr.  Every time I find myself inadvertently wasting my whole afternoon surfing around on it, I learn something new — be it about the Tumblr community itself or individual fandoms.  I’ve mentioned before that people are using their Tumblrs for distribution and meme creation, and that it’s an […]

Comic Non-Sans: “Odyssey into 2012”

About twelve years ago, when I was learning about this webcomic jazz but had no desire to do anything about it long-term, I stumbled upon a website containing a collection of what I’ve seen referred to recently as “impromanga” — a comic with a different writer/artist taking a few pages at a time, with no […]
