On Friday we celebrated webcomics here at The Beat with a day completely devoted to the subject: 24 Hours of Webcomics! For your viewing pleasure, here is a master list of all the webcomics featured.

It’s worth noting too that some of the webcomics that would normally have been featured may have been passed over because they featured in our last mega event – 24 Hours of Women Cartoonists. Which means that if you missed that (how dare you!) you should go read those too.

Comics for everyone!

  1. This was a wonderful idea, i’d love to see this more frequently.

    Does any have any info (or educated guesses) on what percentage of these cartoonists make a living with their webcomics?

  2. I can only speak for the ones I featured, but Gunnerkrigg Court is definitely a full time venture for Tom Siddell, and I think the same is true of Sinfest for Tatsuya Ishida.

    The Abominable Charles Christopher may well do, but Karl Kerschl is also a pro comics artist anyway – much like Cameron Stewart with Sin Titulo.

    Sarah Ellerton (The Phoenix Requiem) and Trudy Cooper (Oglaf) are both pro illustrators as well but I’d imagine Oglaf in particular must do pretty well for itself.
