Asking questions

Greetings Hatmaniacs!

I'm the sort of person who's always asking questions. Face it, your teacher was right- it's the only way to learn anything. Today's question is one you might never have ever thought about:

What is a webcomic?

The population of North America by and large are very familiar with comic books, comic strips, and, to lesser extent, graphic novels. If you mention the names Batman, Spiderman, Snoopy, or Garfield the average person is going to know exactly who you're talking about (OK, Batman has like 15 different variations but you get my point)

But what about webcomics? If you mention Skull the Troll, Gabe and Tycho, or Dust Puppy would you necessarly get the same recognition outside of Net Savvy folks?

For my posts I'm going to start off with an exploration of the popular genres and titles of the greater webcomics universe. My intent is to help us all understand how the Twinsverse fits in the great world of webcomics and promote what I consider to be a unique art form spawned by the Digital Revolution.

Your homework for next time is study the collected works of Scott Kurtz @ (after you've caught up on Hatman of course!)

Until then, True Believers, Excelsior!

Uncle Mutzie
