What is the first thing you do when you want to promote web comics, create a news portal? Perhaps create a review site or even a podcast. The last thing you try to do is run an open source text-driven resource open to anyone to submit articles. So of course Xavier Xerxes is just crazy enough to do it and it’s off to a fantastic start with thousands of changes and quite a few articles in the Webcomics Wiki.
Just how effective can user-contributed resources be without the strict rules followed by Wikipedia. Those very same rules are what restrict Wikipedia from having a more robust coverage of the world we all know and love but it also provides a very accurate and less bias view point. Here is where this new project might help as having thousands of people create a site together can lead to the first truly descriptive central location to find all the information about web comics.
