Totally weird. I picked up this comic, opened the cover and nearly jumped out of my skin. Such a creepy image. This is the very first panel of Batwoman #0 by J.H. Williams III.

So Here’s Your Future – Blaise Larmee’s “2001” and The Webcomics Future

So as we were planning on getting this here blog going, Darryl expressed interest in making sure that as many different formats of comics were covered, especially minis and webcomics. L and I agreed wholeheartedly (which is part of the reason we make such good blogging partners I believe). D went on to talk about how he had a lot to say about webcomics in particular, so expect to be educated in that respect soon.

However, I can’t just let him have all the fun. Webcomics are something I’ve thought a great deal about for the better part of a decade. Some of you may know that I even took at a shot at making one of my own. The whole sphere of comics on the web (which some might split some hairs over the distinction from honest-to-Jehova webcomics) is a strange one, and somewhat difficult to talk about. Honestly, it’s as easy to talk about the whole of webcomics in one breath as it is to do the same as printed comics. That is to say, nearly impossible — there is just too much diversity, too many different nooks and crannies to fit under one umbrella. Despite this, it would at least seem to not be the case.

There’s a kind of general conceptual profile of what a webcomic is, and while it can be pretty amorphous, I get the sense that when most people think about webcomics, they’re not thinking about this.
