September 2009 Member News

Mvmarcz of The Chronicles of Avernyght reports:

As Avernyght is a collection of short stories it is in its nature for the stories to end and be under 100 pages.
The very first Avernyght story has ended, 70 pages long not including the cover. It took a few years and a lot of sidetracks to get it this far and for a brief while I thought I wouldn’t be able to finish it. This year has been a very hard one for me and it’s only half over. Between full class loads and living life I managed to finish the last pages and write the first chapter of the next story.

Congrats, Mary!

Briana of Rune Master: Tales of the Demon Slayer reports: “I’ll be attending Anime Weekend Atlanta September 18-21 in the Artist’s Alley. I’ll (most likely) be selling bookmarks and prints.”

Kat of Sunset Grill will be attending this year’s Small Press Expo — though as a volunteer, not one of those fancy behind-a-table people. If you’re there and see her wandering around, feel free to stop her and say hi.

The Artiste Manquee is returning from summer holidays and will be begin publishing weekly starting on Saturday, Sep 19. Here’s to a new year of art school for Janet!

SPIDERFOREST COMICS IN CARTOON ART MUSEUM
A Virtual Gallery As Part of Monsters of Webcomics Exhibit

Georgetown, Texas, USA – 11 August 2009: The Comic Art Museum in San Francisco, California, is hosting “The Monsters of Webcomics” exhibit from August 8 through December 6, 2009. Sample strips of SpiderForest comics Rune Master: Tales of a Demon Slayer, The Artiste Manquée, and Life’s a Witch are included in the Virtual Gallery of webcomics. They appear alongside Eisner-nominated webcomics (Wondermark, by David Malki, and The Lady’s Murder, by Eliza Frye) as well as beginner webcomics to show the spectrum of styles and genre available on the web.

“I really believe that comics on the web are the next step for creators and readers,” said Samantha Wikan, creator of Life’s a Witch. “The Monsters of Webcomics exhibit is another sign that webcomics are working their way into the mainstream.”

SpiderForest Webcomic Collective has been a home for fine webcomics since 2004. Spiderforest.com hosts comics and comic-related blogs and accepts applications for new members twice a year.

Hey, only 4 more months until our next round of admissions!

EDIT: Dutch of School Spirit has opened shop over here at SpiderForest, and also announces his 750th strip! If you’re looking for a good place to jump in, Dutch recommends starting at this story arc here.

Briana of Rune Master wanted everyone to know she  will be on vacation August 3-7, though there will be guest/filler art during that time.

Al-X from Nahast: Lands of Strife wishes to thank everyone who voted for him in the very-much-in-Spanish short story contest. He did win a slot in the publisher’s anthology, and he will be posting translations of the drafts of the final story in his LiveJournal. In addition, word tells that Mecha & Manga is soon going to the printers, which means it will be soon be available as a PDF from Green Ronin‘s online store!

Sunset Grill will celebrate both its first-year anniversary and its hundred and fiftieth strip in the first week of August. If you want to say hi to Kat and you happen to live in Quebec, she’ll be at the 67th annual World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal from the sixth to the tenth of August, volunteering and doing panels. Can’t find her? Try the bar.

Kez of The War of Winds would like to announce a brand-new site design and overhaul! Please come check it out. The front page also has teasers for two new comics in the works! And oh yeah! Kez and Ravar, a character in the War of Winds, were also in the local newspaper! You can read about that here. The Make Kez Laugh Contest deadline is also August 15! There are some pretty nice prizes, and ALL types of entries are accepted. Read about that here!
