How The Web Gave Birth To A New Brand Of Comics


We’ve showered PBS with appreciation for its “Off Book” series of short documentaries on the web in the past. They’re usually interesting and informative and I actually get happy when I get notices from their publicists alerting me to new ones. Today I was made aware of a new one on web comics.

The internet has given birth to yet another new medium: web comics. Moving beyond the restrictions of print, web comic artists interact directly with audiences who share their own unique worldview, and create stories that are often embedded in innovative formats only possible online. Sometimes funny, sometimes personal, and almost always weird, web comic creators have taken the comic strip form to new, mature, and artistic heights.

I enjoyed it and think you will to. So, well, enjoy!
