||[Jan. 15th, 2007|12:35 am]
As requested, here is the list of webcomics recommended by our esteemed panel.
1002, Comics: "The Best Webcomics You're Not Reading" Sat 3:00 PM, 1 HOUR
ROOM: Molly Pitcher
Eric A Burns & Wednesday White > Collectively known as Websnark (although Eric did most of the talking)Program Guide Text:
This panel was quite popular last year and this year we'll revisit the idea, with a whole new set of recommended webcomics for you to discover. There are thousands upon thousands of webcomics out there on the great big Internet. They range from wretched to wonderful; from the most mundane to the freakiest of the fantastic. We're going to discuss what we consider to be the best of the best from various genres--and we're sure to cover some you haven't heard of yet.Panelist Links
Kelly J Cooper: (aka kjc) Eric A. Burns: Wednesday White: Rob Balder:The Ferrett: We worked in rounds, making recommendations.

Round Two: How Do You Find New Webcomics?
The Ferrett: Reviews webcomics on his livejournal theferrett, so people send him stuff to review
Rob Balder: Finds work through The Ferrett, Comixpedia, various industry blogs, top webcomics voting sites (where he burrows down into the stuff in the 200s & 300s), and LJ's most recent image uploads
kjc: Comixpedia and Livejournal (cos got me hooked on As Seen In VT (link below) and tmcm got me hooked on Fart Party)
Wednesday: (Ed note: Weds, did I summarized correctly? -kjc) Finds things through what her friends are linking to and then avoids it until it's faded back into obscurity and then reads it; also seeks stuff that's pissing everyone off; and talks to people (actually prefers word of mouth)
Eric: Receives Websnark emails saying "have you seen this" or "please look at my webcomic!" - he's more interested in stuff by people who ask for feedback
