Bwana Spoons' Grass Hut announcement says it perfectly:
"He has made many of us want to use computers, books and art to bring more good into the world. We here at Grass Hut are living proof of his positive influence on the world. It is with total gut-wrenching, tear-jerking honor that we host this show."

Finally a web comic that's actually made for the web... or one unruly book. By Stuart Kolakovic of the UK.
UPDATE: Stuart writes "Funny you should call it a web comic- it honestly never even crossed my mind- Never Been was originally printed as a massive, almost 10 meter long mural which wound its way around a gallery wall. The gallery had low ceilings and beam supports jutting out all over the place, hence the funny winding shape. I've never actually read a "web" comic. Comics are all about paper in my book!"
But I persist in saying it's one of the most succesful web comics I've seen, actually making use of the parameters of web technology and viewer interaction rather than just using the web in lieu of print production.
Still, I'd rather view it as a mural. Must have been a beauty.
