Created digitally and distributed on the Internet—sometimes for free, sometimes on subscription—webcomics represent both a new type of publishing and a brand new art form.

Combining profiles of well-known webcomics creators with detailed workthroughs that reveal the nuts and bolts of every aspect of comic creation and presentation, this book is a must for anyone interested in where comics are headed in the 21st century.

    Section one: A New Day for Comics—introduces the new medium of webcomics with a brief history running from its birth in the mid-1990s to its current incarnation. It defines what makes a webcomic, examining the broad styles and genres that have appeared and the audience that is reading them.

    Section two: A Strand of Lanterns—looks in detail at the work of six popular web cartoonists, featuring interviews and workthroughs illustrating the methods they use to create their art.

    Section three: Stellar Cartography—goes into the more complex aspects of creating webcomics. Highlighting the work of eight acclaimed web cartoonists, the section reveals the more advanced and experimental techniques that can be employed in webcomics. The section also features a showcase of the work of some of the best web cartoonists. The section closes with a roundtable discussion between the editors of five webcomics anthology sites, where they debate the pros and cons of joining an anthology site, and the processes involved.
