Another good sign for webcomics.

"In other newsâ€¦ hey, remember Lifeâ€™s a Bluff? The poker webcomic I was drawing until Hero By Night came along? Well the writer, Frank Frisina is now working / partnering up with the World Poker Tour! The comics are appearing on the bottom of their main website, and he has some bigger deal in the works I believe. Damn! I wish I could have stayed on that, ( I know thereâ€™s gold in them thar poker hills!) - For non poker educated folks like me, thatâ€™s the equivalant of me drawing a comic about football and signing with the NFL! Iâ€™d say thatâ€™s interesting news for webcomics as well, and shows there is definitly another avenue for creators to take in serving niches. Right now, you have a flood of â€œvideo gameâ€ type comics or clones of PVP or Penny Arcadeâ€“ but there are several niches out there if you love them enough to do a comic about them. Me? Iâ€™ve always fancied doing a comic about ukuleles and being THE comic about ukulelesâ€¦ butâ€¦ yeah. Heh. Anyways, congrats to Franky! I knew that bird had wings."
