The URL for Webcomic Idol is:
You can vote for the one you want out and see all the contestant comics.
I do like the webcomics.com site as a cartoonist seeking information. In fact Corey Pandolph has an interesting column there that laments the negativity often found in discussions of the print/web comics relationship.
I also like it that new webcomics are announced here. What are the criteria to make it on this list, or is it more or less random/seemingly newsworthy?
