So there's a little bit going on this morning. Read the extended entry for the news. This weekend will be the last installment of our January issue - we have another installment of Damonk's column along with reviews and interviews. Next month - "To The Infinite Canvas and Beyond" or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Long-Form Webcomic".
