Hey, Look, News!

Ah, love, or at least physical approximations thereunto. Over here, you got a 500 stripaversary from Girls With Slingshots as Hazel makes a bad decision. Strip 501 is never quite a much fun as the one before, is it? And over here, we find webcomicker love blossoming as (scroll down) Ian McConville proposes … mawwiage. We at Fleen congratulate the happy couple.

But all of that is naught — naught, I say! — compared to The Great Halfpixel Intern Fight of Aught-Eight.

Oh, Gary. I know you don’t shy from putting work into something worthwhile — I’ve seen your mustache.

Erica is my girlfriend, but Magnolia of the webcomic The Good Crook is my intern this summer. She will also be around in San Diego this year.

For reals.
