Domain name blues

Hey, y’all! I didn’t want to be one of those people whose every post is: “Hi, I am on hiatus, will be updating soon.” Which is why: radio silence. Basically, work and life get in the way. I promise I’ll be back soon once I get the time. (Moving houses and unpacking is damn time consuming, fellas.)

Anyway, it was brought to my attention by a reader over at the AV Club that my domain name had expired. I had planned on settling this… but like I said, busy times. But, hey… we’re van in business! Webcomicoverlook.com is registered once again…. as is webcomic-overlook.com for some reason. Computers, what do they do?

Up next, I am gearing up for Emerald City Comic Con. So if you’re headed that way… I’m the guy dressed up as Dr. Mid-Nite. The ONLY guy dressed up as Dr. Mid-Nite.

Robot 6: Heroes and pugs and bears, oh my!

Here’s my latest updates on Comic Book Resources blog, Robot 6:

  • Earlier this week, I reviewed JL8, Yar Stewart’s webcomic where the Justice League are little kids doing little kid stuff.
  • Today, I got two reviews posted. The first is for Bearmageddon, Ethan Nicolle’s other webcomic. It’s about bears.
  • The second is a review of Battlepug, Mike Norton’s webcomic about a barbarian and a big dog.

Anyway, I’ve been trying to create a backlog of Robot 6 pieces so I can post a new review on this site eventually. That should be forthcoming any day now. Aaaaannnny day now.

The challenge here, personally, is trying to find time reading new webcomics while keeping up to date with the review schedule at the Robot 6 site. Like, I have read all three of the comics previously, but I found I basically had to reread them to get up to speed with the latest webcomic updates.

Thanks for your patience regular readers. I am going to try to get a new review up by the end of next week at least.

This Week on Robot 6

Robot 6: sticky notes and fantasy

Two more Robot 6 pieces debuted this week:

As for this site, I’m targeting end of this week for when a new review’s going to be up.

El Santo on Robot 6: Webcomics are for the children

New article at Robot 6 is up! Here, I discuss Stripped‘s subtext about comic strips and childhood, and I theorize how Penny Arcade‘s recent moves may be steering things that direction in the world of webcomics.

EDIT: Also they decided to publish my review of Pole Dancing Adventures, a webcomic about pole dancing. On the same day I did that piece on kids’ webcomics.

WHEEEEEEEEE!

Metapost: doing some work for Robot 6

Hello, all. Now that my articles are up, I suppose I can let the cat out of the bag. I will be doing some pieces for Robot 6 for the near future. They were looking to expand their presence in webcomic coverage, and thought I might be a good fit on their site. They gave me a pretty wide net, though, so I may be doing a few reviews that aren’t necessarily webcomic related.

What I am determined to focus on, though, is comics content. I am by no means an insider in any field… but I do like to read a lot. So the topics I’ll be focusing on are stories, artwork, composition, humor… basically all of the stuff I’ve covered here. In fact, longtime Webcomic Overlook readers might find a lot of it overly familiar. I will be covering ground of some webcomics I’ve already reviewed here. I’ve always wanted to revisit some of the webcomics I’ve read, and this gig at Robot 6 is my chance.

I’ll be posting pieces up there four times a week: twice on Monday, and twice on Friday. My debut piece are already up. They cover the following:

  1. YET ANOTHER article discussing Homestuck. (This time talking about its unique “Pesterlog” format.) I sorta wanted to debut discussing the biggest game in town in the webcomics biz.
  2. A review of Stripped. It’s fairly short… shorter than what I usually write up. I’m actually splitting this up into two: part two will probably be out next week.

And there it is! I still plan on putting up reviews here, by the way. (Or as I like to call ’em, “the new stuff.”) The schedule may be a bit more sporadic from now on, though. (As if it wasn’t already.)
