A Major WHAT Moment

Why does it seem that every other webcomic I visit today has a big, flashing ad for The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on Oxygen? To quote Winter McCloud, I think they’re confused about their demographic. This is so odd, I’ve made a concerted effort to determine what the most bizarre pairing of TJDMA and webcomic-running-the-ad might be. Current leader: User Friendly. Seriously.

  • Speaking of demographics, count me a member of the Relieved to see that Karen Ellis is apparently alive and well cohort. My obsessive re-clicking on Planet Karen every other hour appears to have finally paid off. Fleen welcomes Ellis back to the waking world, and hopes that her nap hasn’t led to any nasty cramping in her drawing hand.
  • Want to work on a project of lasting importance and be a part of something bigger than yourself? Handy with Photoshop and want something really cool to put on your resume? Dying to see pages of Kazu Kibuishi‘s next Amulet volume before anybody else? Kibuishi’s looking for some assistance with production work:

    So, as I wind down on the drawing side of production and begin ramping up for the painting stage, I will need some volunteers! Anybody interested in giving me a hand with the flatting (and perhaps painting) of the pages? This year, I decided to find assistants online, to see what the internets will yield. My lead assistant, Alan Beadle, will still be joining me on this journey, as will Amy, Shadi, and Tim, but we’ll definitely need some more brave souls to join the party. If you are interested, please send me an email at kazu [you know how email addresses work] and some examples of your work. From what people who worked on the first book told me, they seemed to have a lot of fun and found it to be a rewarding experience.

    If I knew Photoshop, I’d so be there. Have a great weekend, everybody!

What I’d like to see is a User Friendly ad on Oxygen. Or to go with something that probably has a more apt price range, Penny Arcade.

SO glad to see that Karen is back!

Hey man…I like your blog! Check out our webcomic Utopia Theory at . We’d love to have our link added to your list! We would do the same for on our list as well!

Ooh, better not miss THAT opportunity, Gazza!

Well Tynic, seeing as how we are getting 5 to 10 times the traffic as, i would think that it would be a win win situation!
