I was probably part of the problem, since I don’t follow webcomic collection sites, only individual webcomics, but when did Girlamatic.com stop being an active site? As of this morning, everything on the front page is labeled “no longer updating”, and the last editorial is a year old (although with the lack of dates on the site, it was hard to determine that).
The site, focused on comics by and of interest to women, was six years old as of March 31. It was one of a network of sites that gave free tastes but asked for subscription revenue for access to archives, a model that once worked but seems to have died out in favor of advertising and merchandise money.
Update: One of the contributors writes in the comments that there are some strips still updating weekly, and she recommends the RSS feed to keep up with them. So the site’s not completely dead, just pining for the fjords.
