Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

image* another long-running webcomics scores a print iteration.

* here's an essay on the concept of magnifique Noir, a spin on the magical girl genre that almost certainly has a strong digital component.

* LINE Webtoon is included in a profile of independent comics publishers that are pushing back against the pitiful percentages that come out of mainstream comics publisher in terms of the participation of women creators. The biggest change that digital comics has had on comics overall is giving a platform to a lot of comics that ran afoul of the established gatekeepers and then continued to change damaging myths about the work created by such creators.

* webcomics = meme farms.

* finally: love for Jake Likes Onions.
