It looks like maybe Leslie Walker started a domino of interest. Starting with her post in the Washington Post her article was reprinted in the LA Times, Biz Report, and DetNews.com. Despite the not so warm reception of the web comic community it was still coverage and exposure for a group of people who can only really count about 10 success stories.
The story doesn’t end there though. The Fort Wayne News~Sentinel has a fresh new article by Levi Buchanan that is pretty short but talks about Penny-Arcade, PvP, and CAD. Unfortunately the article concentrates more on the use of expletives and how the comics rant . You can tell by the title alone the article isn’t exactly flattering. How do we change this coverage to how web comics make hundreds of thousands of people laugh instead of being raunchy?
