Last year the webcomic panel was all obscure types like me (see sig) and Annalise (of Ensuing
). One of the better known local webcomic artists
moved to Texas and hasn't been doing many comic strips lately anyway, and Greg from Real Life said on his site that he had some weird issue with the con that I don't fully understand, but he decided never to come back. Fred Gallagher also supposedly said he wasn't coming back to Fanime, but then he apparently has zillions of cons that want him to attend all the time.
For my part, this year I've been too stressed to try to do anything with panels, so I didn't take the initiative to bug live programming about having a webcomics panel like last year. Plus I've been too busy to regularly update my comic anyway. ^_^;;;;
