Art Comics Daily

"Art Comics Daily" is a webcomic published since March 1995 by Bebe Williams of Arlington, Va.Peterson, Iver (October 28 1996). "The Search for the Next 'Doonesbury". "The New York Times", Pg. D9 ] After Williams' comic strips were repeatedly rejected by newspaper syndicates, he brought them to the Internet where he had more artistic freedom. He also saw in webcomics the possibility to earn money from advertisers or help land a job as a print cartoonist.Peterson, Iver (October 28 1996). "The Search for the Next 'Doonesbury". "The New York Times", Pg. D9 ] In 1998 he described his views about online publishing to "The Atlanta Journal and Constitution": "Cartoonists can show comics to an audience despite the powers-that-be at print syndicates, who are not interested in modern alternative humor. It's my belief that the print syndicates are holding back the evolution of modern dailies in general."Braddock, Paige (November 8 1998). "A healthy dose of comic relief: For cartoonists who find the print media too stuffy, too exclusive or too much hassle, the Internet is a technological godsend". "The Atlanta Journal and Constitution", Pg. 1P ]

"The Australian" has described Williams' webcomics as being "strange but diverting" and having more sociocultural leanings than "Doonesbury" and "Dilbert".Hilvert, John (June 3 1997). "Copyright laws made easy". "The Australian", Pg. C10 ] The "Art Comics" site has also hosted webcomics by other artists.Braddock, Paige (November 8 1998). "A healthy dose of comic relief: For cartoonists who find the print media too stuffy, too exclusive or too much hassle, the Internet is a technological godsend". "The Atlanta Journal and Constitution", Pg. 1P ]

Williams also created two other webdailies, one being the Xeric Award winner photo comic "Bobby Ruckers" and the other being "Just Ask Mr-Know-It-All". Bobby Ruckers was also a comic book in which Williams used photos and art starring as the character (a superhero in a business suit).
