A Cheerful Image, But Somber News

Name-Is-Ed, approximately 25 years of age, died killing a god and a demon. Survivors include the hyena tribe that disowned him, the wombat that befriended him, and some underground critters that love purple dye.

  • In much cheerier news, I’ve had a sneak peek at NEWW programming (it may even be live by the time this goes up), and there’s some real gems on the list; please enjoy this smattering of topics:

  • In my haste to congratulate Kate Beaton on her Lulu Award yesterday, I completely overlooked Diana Nock’s win of the Leah Adezio Award for Best Kid-Friendly Work for The Intrepid Girlbot. This is because I had a heapin’ bowl of Stupid Flakes for breakfast. Many thanks to Webcomics Uberfan Michael Kinyon for the catch, and many apologies to Ms Nock for the oversight.
  • New PBF! And along with it, links to the animated shorts that were shown at SDCC this summer. Check them out!
