There's actually enough sources out there on webcomics that we shouldn't 
need to go to blogs to source statements.  There's ImageText for 
starters, The Comics Jouanal, IJOCA, Journal of Popular Culture should 
have stuff in them, check the comics research bibliography, 
http://rpi.edu/~bulloj/comxbib.html - Sabin's written on comics on the 
web for example, or a quick ask on the comics scholars mailing list 
could probably turn you up quite a few more sources.
