At the end of the current story arc (Gus Goes To Hell), The Asylumantics will stop online publication.
After two years and almost 400 comic strips, the Wrenwood Gang will be moving entirely to the world of printed collections with the first comic expected around the end of January 2004. The Asylumantics website will be left online as a way for readers to order the books as they become available.

Not since the defunct Dysfunctional Family Circus have I laughed so hard at other artists' misfortune. The Golden Age: Uncensored basically takes images from "golden age" comics and layers vulgar, crude and explicit jokes on them by changing the dialogue and descriptions. It's not entirely consistent (sometimes the creator forgets the point of the strip and uses panels from more modern comic art which basically neutralizes the humor) and humorwise, it is a one-trick pony. And, don't forget that someday soon it will likely be sued into nonexistence by lawyers from D.C. or Marvel or some newspaper syndicate (again see the now defunct Dysfunctional Family Circus) but in the meantime...
