Added 1 new A* page:Doings in the world of webcomics! Long time comic hosting site Smack Jeeves has announced that in early December they will be moving to a mobile-app-emphasizing, vertical-format-supporting template, and removing custom templates, messaging, and their forum—trying to copy the newer, Korean-style comic hosting sites Line Webtoon and Tapas that have vastly surpassed them in popularity, basically.|
From a discussion thread among current Smack Jeeves users on their forum, I picked up a few handy links : ) :
The administrator of ComicFury, now soon to be the last webcomic hosting site left supporting custom site templates, as far as I know (after this move by Smack Jeeves, and after DrunkDuck went through its own shift away from custom templates a few-ish years back), has already made a converter for people who want to migrate to ComicFury from Smack Jeeves and retain the look of their customized webcomic site.
And I learned of a new-ish (I think?) webcomic listing and reading site called ArchiveBinge, where you can browse for comics, keep track of where you're at reading them, and so forth.
Thirdly, there's GlobalComix, also a fairly new site, this being a comic hosting site, with a sort of bouncy, reactive layout.
I do, of course, have A* on all these sites. ; ) So if you want somewhere else to get your A* :
- on Smack Jeeves
- on Line Webtoon
- on Tapas
- on ComicFury
- on DrunkDuck
- on ArchiveBinge
- on GlobalComix
It ain't easy to escape a supermassive black hole. ^_^
The original 16" x 6.75" watercolor art for today's new A* page is up for auction on eBay. : )
