- Brad Guigar is at it again — members of Webcomics Dot Com now get 15% off of all orders from Blue Line Pro‘s website.

With three months still to go to the new WDC’s 1 year anniversary, can Guigar make it an even 10 partnership discounts by then? Also, bootcamp attendees, be sure to tell us about what’s in those swag bags.
