Guest strip no. 5 by Jamie Robertson of Clan of the Cats

Guest comic by Jamie Robertson

Jamie Robertson is the author of one of my favorite webcomics, Clan of the cats. The writing and colored art in this horror/humor soap opera is excellent. But surely you knew this already?

Originally published on March 23,2001. Since then, the tone of Clan of the Cats has become more serious and epic.

Guest comic by Scott Maddix and Anthony Port of Psychic Dyslexia Institute

Scott Maddix writes, and Anthony Port draws Psychic Dyslexia Institute. At the time of writing this, I haven't read through their archives yet, but I've poked my head in on occasion and it's interesting stuff.

Guest strip no.7 with art by Daniel Østvold and writing by the aenigmatic Geir Strøm

Guest comic by Geir Strøm and Daniel Østvold.

Geir has worked with me on many long and short projects including White House in Orbit and The Eye of the Underworld. He is also co-creator of the Chronicles of the Witch Queen series with Daniel, and has several other projects in the pipeline.
Daniel is a Norwegian painter and sculptor. He has an exhibit going on in Oslo next month. Of all his artistic activities, his cartooning has been the least known to the public, and this is a shame because he is so good. Check out his work on The Double, Christmas at Blocksberg and Alcydia.

Originally published on March 25, 2001. Original blurb revised in 2006.

Guest strip no.8 with art by damonk of Naught Framed, who clearly, uh, dislikes showing graphic violence as much as I do.

Guest comic by 'I can't believe it's not' Damonk.

Damonk is notdamonk, and that's all you can say without losing your sanity. His Framed puts a battering ram to the Fourth Wall, hacks it into tiny fragments, grinds it into dust and scatters it to the four winds. It then razes the stage to the ground and sets fire to the remains. It then proceeds to wipe all memory of the Fourth Wall from the minds of the people of the world, so that none may know that there ever was such a thing.

Guest strip no.9 by Caleb Sevcik of Zap Jones.

Guest comic by Caleb Sevcik

Caleb is the creator of Zap Jones which in just a few weeks has established itself as one of the best comics on the Web. In my book, Caleb is one of the greats. Intelligent, well-paced writing, strong dialog, excellent art - don't miss this.

Originally published on March 27, 2001. Caleb has not had much luck in recent years building a permanent presence and audience for his comics, which is a crying shame. Many of his comics have appeared and disappeared from the web, but Zap Jones is still available at Comicgenesis, and he's still got a collection of comics up on Modern Tales under the header of Robot Barber.

Guest strip no.10 by Tiffany Ross of Alien Dice and Shivae, and Reinder.

First in a guest strip miniseries in five parts!

Guest comic by Tiffany Ross.

Tiffany Ross is the creator of, well, many things. With seemingly boundless energy, she runs several daily and weekly original fantasy webcomics. So far, I haven't been able to keep up with her, but what I've read was really good: great art and stories, with humor and suspense.

First published on March 28, 2001.

Guest comic by Doc MacDougal

DocMacDougal was, at the time this guest series was originally published, the artist of The Dan and Ed Super Fun Adventure Hour Another strip that I hadn't really explored yet, but should have. Too late now, but now Doc has some comics up on his website Borealism.

Guest strip no.12 by Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary, and Reinder.

Third in a guest strip miniseries in five parts!

Guest comic by Howard Tayler

Howard Tayler is the creator of Schlock Mercenary. Schlock is one of my favorite webcomics. I love the combination of intelligent humour based in science and religion, cautious formal experimentation, and potty gags.

Originally published on March 30, 2001. Howard is still doing the same thing he was doing five years ago (albeit for a vastly larger audience), and after setting up some of the previous strips in this rerun, I'm grateful to him for that.

Guest strip no.13 by Jeroen Jager, who has since become Reinder's studiomate, and Reinder.

Fourth in a guest strip miniseries in five parts!

Guest comic by Jeroen Jager.

I can't even begin to enumerate my studio-mate Jeroen's many creations, but he's doing rather well with print comics and related merchandise, especially the stuff featuring his character Kittypuss.

Guest strip no.14 with art by Gijs Rosengarten of Get with the Program

Last in a guest strip miniseries in five parts!

Guest comic by Gijs Rosengarten.

Gijs Rosengarten is the artist of Get With the Program, a geek strip described as " neo-realistic absurdism at its finest". Somehow, that hits the nail on the head: GWTP is at the same time realistic and absurd - and at the same time conventional and innovative. The characters are familiar stereotypes: the nerd programmer, the jaded boss, the hot-shit game designer, the dumb secretary with great people skills. However, when Gijs and writer Jan Niestad use them, they become fresh and alive.
Note how Kel looks like Quety Pie in this strip. Projection?
