webcomics

I'm freakin' addicted to the things. Some I am dying to know what happens in the story and I spend every day watching for updates so I can find out what's going to happen next, one tiny bit at a time. Some I just love for the art. Some I'm not sure why I read them every day, though I would feel sad if I didn't. But most are ridiculously silly and they bring that funny little feeling to my mouth that makes me happy. Lots more than most syndicated comic crap does. I wonder if webcomics would be more successful if we called them 'open source comics.' :)

I have to agree that most web comics are better than most syndicated comics, with exceptions of course. Open source comics? That's an interesting way to look at it. As far as the development of the comic I guess its not really the same. The all have one artist that does all the work and doesn't share his 'code'. But I guess a lot of them take ideas and cues from their huge communites, and just the fact that they have huge communities is more 'open source' than the syndicated ones. Fans can get a lot closer to the artist with web comics.
