Busy Being British Blokes

This is the first post from Contestant #6

What constitutes “news”? in the webcomics world is a murky issue, at best. Sometimes it can be as hilarious and thrilling as the latest call-to-arms against the day’s Jack Thompson. Often, though, it is more like wondering what substance Jeff Rowland was ingesting when he made the day’s Overcompensating. Such are the lives of the fabulously rich and powerful masters of webcomics, and we are at their terrible, inhuman whim.

Anyway, I was going to write about the news over at Dinosaur Comics today (Monday, April 24th, 2006, for those of you in the blasted, dystopian wasteland of the grim future). Ryan tells us that he has added a new feature to the RSS feed site he created, RSSPECT: “Now you can use RSSPECT to create an RSS feed for almost every single website (or document) on the internet!�? Rock out, Mr. North. I salute you. But not as much, because someone already talked about that.

But I digress. Today marks the St. George’s Day British Webcomic Piss-Up. It’s a get-together for British webcomics to ostensibly celebrate St. George’s Day, but mostly to make comics about swords. Honestly, I can’t think of a good reason not to celebrate swords. Delicious, delicious swords

Check it out and the comics involved. It’ll do you good, and you’ll get your recommended daily serving of iron. You might find a couple comics of your liking that are outside of the usual community.
I certainly did.

Feels like it jumps around a bit too much. Not that that’s always bad, but its done way too disjointedly. The content itslef wasn’t bad though, but the flow wasn’t there.

I see what Matt means, it’s a little disjointed. But, coupled with the second entry now, I have to give a vote for contestant #6. I like it.
