And speaking of Nobrow, their release of Jesse Moynihan’s Forming is already on my list of books of the year.

Jesse, who works on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, has been serializing Forming as a webcomic. You can read all of it online, but it’s as a physical book that the comic really sings. With such a cast of characters, it can be difficult to to keep track of the bizarre story lines when you’re fed a single page a week. And turning pages on the couch will always beat mouse clicks at one’s desk. But the real benefit here is one of size. At 9” x 12” Jesse’s painted gouache artwork has the opportunity to be fully admired in a way that it can’t when shrunk down for the screen. Nobrow once again demonstrates the emotional power of print and why physical books are in no danger of being replaced by digital ones as long as they are treated like works of art.

Plus, it’s hilarious. Forming is an epic sci-fi creation myth that will have you chuckling like an idiot. Get a taste of the webcomic version, then add this bad boy to your bookshelf. And don’t miss this interview with the cartoonist.

You’ve all seen the image above, by PVP’s Scott Kurtz.  You’ve seen it a hundred times because it’s been posted everywhere, and there’s no way it hasn’t been seen by hundreds of thousands of readers.
So why aren’t DC and Marvel capitalizing on webcomics? 

Chris Sims asks a wonderful question over at Comics Alliance. Relative to this article I posted on my blog about the comics industry’s crash in 1993, it seems like a completely terrible move for them NOT to get into webcomics.

And also they’re on twitter.

Today or Tomorrow, a webcomic that is unconventional in both style and in how it’s presented online — two qualities I can get behind. By Tim Lahan.

The points below are what I’ve learned doing indie comics as a career. There’s always room for art for art’s sake, for hobbyism, but these are the lessons I’ve learned for those who want to escape that prevailing mood.

John Allison: “A scene that celebrates itself has nothing to celebrate”

Wonderfully simple, brutally sensible advice from web comic creator John Allison (Bad Machinery, Scary Go Round): Move, Grow up, and Run your business like a business. We don’t hear nearly enough frank advice like this in our fields. Good stuff.

Birthday Street
This is a brilliant idea — Kevin Cornell, Matt Sutter, and Peter Dalkner have started a tag-team webcomic called Birthday Street.
The concept is similiar to Matt and Kevin’s also-brilliant The Superest, in which each cartoon is a direct reaction to the one that followed.
It’s like a jam comic that trades hands every page rather than every panel.

Charlie Poppins’ Scrapbook by animator director Romain Segaud bills itself as a French Far Side, and while you may need to understand French to get most of the jokes, the great cartooning is enjoyable regardless of any language barrier.

Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau interviewed by Slate

There’s not much future in being a strip artist now. That’s quite a turnaround in fortunes, because presiding over an established syndicated comic strip used to be the closest thing to tenure that popular culture offered. If I were starting out now, I’d probably continue on the graphic design trajectory I was on before I got sidetracked with comics. Colbert-like TV would be OK, too, except you have to be brilliant. I advise young cartoonists now to get into graphic novels—or head for Pixar.
