All the webcomic fandoms in #Yuletide 2019

Signups are open for this year’s Yuletide, the small-fandom fic exchange, until November 4!

Here’s the full schedule, and here are the instructions for signing up. (If you don’t already have an AO3 account, you’ll need to get one of those first. Some invite links: one, two, three, four.)

The list of eligible fandoms for Yuletide 2019 is absolutely massive, so I pulled out a list of “just the webcomics that are free to read online.” Plus the links for where to read them…

It’s a good time to be in comics

Lore Olympus, one of the biggest hits on Webtoon, has been picked up by the Jim Henson Company for development as an animated series.

Webtoon is also teaming up with Crunchyroll to co-produce animated content from the site’s other original webcomics.

From an earlier generation of self-published comics, Jeff Smith’s BONE has been picked up for publication by Netflix. (The series was originally self-published, with Smith driving around the country delivering them to comic shops out of the back of his car, before it got picked up by Scholastic.)

And speaking of Scholastic, their latest graphic novel release by Raina Telgemeier debuted as the #1 book in the US last month. Not the #1 comic — the #1 BOOK.

Sometimes, nice things happen.

Comics & webcomics, throwbacks & updates

Can you maybe contextualize the Homestuck epilogue for someone who has never read Homestuck but is curious what all the hullabaloo is about? ”

Prototype Calvin and Hobbes strips, from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. (He used to be called Marvin!)

Marvin and Hobbes

“Comics and graphic novels bounced back from 2017’s sales slump to have their best year ever in 2018. […] For the first time, however, [comic shops] represent less than half the comcis market, when digital and crowdfunding are factored in.”

The Webcomic Reader Poll Data is here! Find out what your readers actually want to see from your webcomic! And which is better, webtoon or tapas?”

When a series you follow has a scheduled update, but the page isn’t finished yet, would you prefer the artist post a (readable) draft on-schedule and replace it when the finished strip is ready? Or forget the schedule and only post after it’s done?”

A reminder that you can install products from Adobe CS2 for free.

A solemn reminder of how dangerous artistic burnout can be, even when congoers are wonderful: “So many people, who’d never met my brother and didn’t even know his name, tried to save him, acting so quickly and earnestly. The staff and other attendees even formed a barricade to keep the walkways clear so that the paramedics could get to him, and transport him to the ambulance, as quickly as possible.”

This Week in Leif & Thorn:
Surprisingly tender frenemy bonding with the Agents D.

Just good things. (Nonbinary solidarity, great inventions, cool shadows, and more.)

“A 61-year-old person in my sample told me that they lived the vast majority of their life as though they were a gay man and was mistaken often as a drag queen after coming out. They didn’t discover nonbinary until they were in their 50s, and it was a freeing moment of understanding that nothing is wrong. They didn’t have to force themselves into the gay-man or trans-woman box — they could just be them. They described it as transcendent.

Evelyn Berezin, a computer pioneer who emancipated many a frazzled secretary from the shackles of the typewriter nearly a half-century ago by building and marketing the first computerized word processor, died on Saturday in Manhattan. […] Ms. Berezin held nine computer-related patents.”

Motto and his team had enough data to determine that their work was unprecedented in the history of suicide research. In the first two years following hospitalization, the suicide rate of the control group was nearly twice as high as that of the contact group.”

Parallax in action. (Someone put a light on a model train, then drove it around a dark room and filmed the beautiful shadows.)

“The people making these memes obviously have never seen some of the weird ass shit in old-timey photos.” (Contains B&W vintage photography of what is definitely an old-timey fursuit.)

CollegeHumor sketch: the CEO of Tumblr makes the slow-building discovery of what all the content on his site is.

By the way, if you’re on Discord, come take a look at the Comic Tea Party webcomic discussion group! They host regular chats on a variety of comics – and Leif & Thorn is scheduled for January 17.

A few more webcomic discord servers I’m on: SpiderForest Collective, Comicadia, and StArt Faire. (I sure hope all those links are current. Discord is…weird about that.)
