PBS’ Off Book takes a look at webcomics

Yeah, most of you have probably seen this already, but it’s new to me. (Curse those visitors at my house for derailing my typical feelers for any sort of webcomic news). PBS did a segment on their show, Off Book called “The Rise of Webcomics” … and it’s really well done. They interview Christina Xu of Breadpig, Nick Gurewitch of Perry Bible Fellowship, Sam Brown of Exploding Dog, Lucy Knisley of Stop Paying Attention, and Andrew Hussie of Homestuck. It’s a pretty nice slice of webcomic creators. Each of them give a little talk about what their plans for their webcomics are, and how the unique properties of the internet open up their comics to new possibilites. (I especially like how Hussie talks about how relationships between people are different now with the internet, and how he tries to replicate that sort of environment in his comic.) Anyay, a fine documentary, if a little short.



About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.
