Welcome to the new WebcomicZ. It’s still developed, designed and run by me, but it’s gotten a pretty big overhaul in both design and function.
The major change will be the site's focus on news, articles and reviews.
For the time being I, and a few friends with a passion for webcomics, will be doing a majority of the reviews and updates. I'm looking forward to pulling in some more talent from the community to help in the future.
Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to reveal our new mission statement. It will be what guides me as I develop this and other sites in the coming months.
Mission Statement: "To bring webcomics into the mainstream by sharing the best and brightest examples of the community's work whenever and wherever possible."
WebcomicZ will aim to promote the best of the best webcomics to show that the community holds just as much artistic, literary and creative talent as any other mainstream entertainment medium out there today.
I have a number of related projects that will be released throughout the year to both further expose webcomics to the general public as well as help webcomic cartoonist earn money and support their beloved hobby/business. I think some of the ideas are really exciting and really unique. Look for them soon.
All of this will of course require help from all of you. For right now, the best way you can help is find your favorite webcomic on the site and sponsor it as a featured webcomic. Not only will you help send traffic to that webcomic, but the money you spend will go to improving this site for all. It's a win-win situation.
I'm very excited to finally have this new version of the site up and running and I hope you are as well. As always, you can feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, comments, concerns or would like to contribute in any way.
