Much Webcomics News Today

Let’s tuck in, shall we?

  • Latin Heartthrob Aaron Diaz was injured in a bicycle crash; reports indicate his nasty facial gash, a busted webcomic-containing computer, and two bitched-up drawing hands. Dresden Codak will be on hold until he has a chance to heal or install robotic replacements, whichever is cooler. Those wishing a bilingual account of the accident need only look here; dry textual version on the main DC page.
  • DJ Coffman doesn’t like the new Wowio contracts (thanks to The Irresponsible Captain Tylor‘s More Responsible Brother for the heads-up). Open call to anybody who’s been asked to sign off on the new provisions, which seem to me to be full of weasel words (but having not seen the original Wowio contracts, I couldn’t say if this is a new development or not).
  • Mini book corner: premiering in San Diego (but picked up at my FLCS): Girl Genius: Agatha Heterodyne and the Voice of the Castle, and Flight 5. Thirty-second reviews of both: Kazu‘s story in F5 is my favorite so far — it’s both shorter and less melancholy than his contributions in the last few iterations. GG:AHATVOTC stands alone better than the previous volume (which was a bit in media res) and has plenty of Jägermonsters (but no Jaegermonster).
  • Kris Straub has another new webcomic project on deck. We’ll have to wait until after SDCC to find out if F Chords really does star Straub MC Frontalot (as one might assume from the teaser image).
  • Finally, it was announced earlier today that Applegeeks is the latest webcomics property to do book(s) through Dark Horse — release date for Volume 1 (184 pages!) is listed as June 2009, so look for Hawk & Ananth to be touring in support on next year’s con circuit.
