How to Write

A big part of blogging and making any kind of comics has been...writing!  It helps to know how to do that.

For the basics of spelling, grammar and general usage of the English language, one should really pick up The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr and E.B. White.

More Webcomics To Check Out

Many webcomics exist out there.  I disagree with Sturgeon's law, but do agree with the principle of varying quality in webcomics.  Some are awful, some are okay, some are good...and some are just amazing!

Anyway, moving on, here's a few more webcomics worth checking out!

Grrl Power

Tangled River

Sabrina Online - A good one!

Penny Arcade - A long-runner that even has its own fan convention!  This is an example of what a superior webcomic should be!
