I liked what they had to say, but I feel that a large part of what webcomics are was missed in favor of displaying the more popular area of webcomics, i.e. alternative, avant-garde comics. There are many other areas of webcomics that are just as prominent, like gamer comics, online graphic novels, and manga. Heck, there’s even a strong newspaper strip-style area of the submedium. I like the fact that they’re acknowledging the sub-medium, because webcomics (as well as comics in general) have been undervalued for decades, but I’d be loathe to use this video to introduce someone to webcomics.

Also yes I know they spelled it “web comics” but I’m a grammar nazi and that’s an incorrect spelling.
