Groups are cool. Local groups where you can get together to talk in person are great. Groups online where you can find more targeted shared interests are great. There's a much easier way to set up, join and use groups on the forthcoming, new Comixpedia site.
A couple of requests: If you have a local group tell me about it so I can set it up for you on the new site. If you have a request for a shared interest group post it here (other ideas for groups are welcome to).
Avatars are also cool (I'd say "rad" but I think 80's nostalgia is already come and gone). You can use off-site avatars on the new forums but here's another suggestion - if you want to provide an avatar for anyone on the site to use - post it here and I'll grab it and load it. You need to have the ability to give me a license to use on the site (i.e., it's got to be an image you have the copyright for), it should be 100 x 100 or smaller and keep the file size small. I think this could be pretty
radcool if the forums and posts are filled with webcomic character avatars.
Also, I'm still going to nag folks for feedback on the forums until I get some.

Still hoping for some feedback on the forums when we launch a new site later this year. Also no one has asked about Fright Night - if you're interested in shepherding it this year please step up to the plate.
I forgot to mention our October cover is from Jamie Robertson, the creator of Clan of the Cats. Boo! Our October issue starts next week.
Keenspot had to move its forums due to a massive DOS attack on its previous server. I think the individual forum links are the same except now they're hanging off of the url "http://keenforums.keenspot.com"
The Webcomic Press is having a community interview with Tom Brazelton, creator of Theater Hopper. Go post some questions for him. They also recently gathered questions for an interview with Jeph Jacques, creator of Questionable Content. While you're there be sure to check out an audio interview with Scott Kurtz, creator of PvP.
There's an update on the first Penny Arcade book, "Attack of the Bacon Robots."
Finally, another sign of the apocalypse: dolphins learn to sing the Batman TV show theme song.
