Some excellent winners – and the Cho referred to is the CANADIAN Cho. Webcomics Creator / Créateur de Bandes Dessinées Web TY TEMPLETON – Bun Toons Writer / Scénariste JEFF LEMIRE – Black Hammer […]
This comic comes directly from the Beat’s comment section, where a reader wondered why folks like things such as yesterday’s pick, Owlturd Comics. Reader Nico plugged “webcomic name” as a parody of three panel a day webcomic humor. Webcomics name is pretty simple. A panel, a complication and the final “oh no” no matter what […]
