New Sidebar Features

Posted by – January 11, 2009

Webcomics are still one of those things — like Twitter, lutfisk, glögg, and Highlander — that my friends ask me about frequently when I bring the topic up. A lot of comics readers aren’t webcomics readers and a lot of people aren’t readers in general, so I get put on the spot to name a few that they should check out.

Well, get happy because I finally put up a “Favorite Webcomics Menu” sidebar that lists a sampling of my favorite online strips, graphic novels, and serialized adventures in webcomic form. It’s not exhaustive or organized by genre (some are complete stories, some have ended their runs, some are humor, some sci-fi, etc.), but if you want to check out a new, free comics story online, head over to your right and scroll down. Each of those comes with my personal recommendation.

I also filled in the “Blogroll” field at long last. Tiny additions will dribble in to both of those in the near future.
