Yesterday, I was reading some comics, flipping from page to page and I decided to check out my sponsor link over at Theater Hopper
. Yep, there it was, surrounded by his other sponsors in living black and white and a sonogram is present?
Well, I love babies, so I had to read the post. Well, just blow me away, Tom and his wife, Cami, are expecting a little boy Brazelton. Isn't that cool?
Being a big mouth, I sent Tom a congrats email and he answered me, which leads me to my musings today.
Nearly every webcomic artist I have reviewed, discussed or emailed has emailed me back. Quite a bit of them actually mentioned my mention of them on their sites. And, that's when it hit me, there's a lot of give and take with webcomic people. It's like being a part of a large, spread out family. You rarely see political blogs with a guest writer, but you often see webcomics with an artist filling in for a vacation or illness or just because. You rarely see a book's website mention the small review it received on a blog, but you often will see an artist thanking so and so for the mention.
Now, I've only been writing blogs for a relatively short while. I've been lucky to discuss comics and life in general with a lot of different guys (Bryan from Bassetville
, Darren from Imaginary Friends
, Brandon from Mousewax
and the list goes on and on). Anyway, I must be feeling sappy, because I thought I'd just write a quick blog on how close the webcomic community is and what I really want to say, is thanks for letting me join in, even though I can't draw a straight line.
PS. God, I'm such a sap!
