Not Web Comics But Certainly of Interest: Cory Doctorow (Boing Boing) is initiating an interesting publishing project that includes both free and for pay elements. He will be tracking the results of his efforts in a monthly Publisher's Weekly column. I think much of what he plans has applications for web cartoonists once they have enough material to print collections. Best of all, he promises hard dollars and cents numbers in future columns. You can read his first column here.
Many Apologies: I'm sorry to have such a long lapse on Java Town. It really can't be helped right now. I will get back to it as soon as I can.
