I saw this via the bloggy part of PvP. It’s a comic that explains and also shows some of the cool stuff people could (and, it argues, should) be doing with webcomics.

I love webcomics and don’t think they’re in any sense broken or in need of fixing. (I lost about 2 hours the other day reading the entire archive of XKCD,which is about as basic and un-animated as it gets.) It’s partly the constraints of the form that it make it great. But I guess to properly appreciate it we should at least be aware of the options we’re eschewing.

Yes, eschewing.
