HEIDI WENT TO STRANGERS IN PARADISE WRAP PARTY
Sim is done; Jeff Smith is done; now SiP is done. Colleen Doran’s A Distant Soil is still around, but published at Image, ditto for Eric Shanower and Age of Bronze. Batton Lash soldiers on with Supernatural Law, but he’s one of the few old schoolers left. I’ve written here before that Carla Speed McNeil is now the self-publishing standard bearer, but even she has gone to the web.
With webcomics the new standard, self-publishing a comics series is a dying enterprise. Web to graphic novel is the new paradigm. It was interesting to see people like Tucci and Smith at the party — they had all been part of the movement in its heyday but had gone on to different career paths.
