An interesting story on Frank Miller at the Guardian. Miller raves about his experience co-directing Sin City and goes so far as to say he expects to direct on his own at some point. He also says he is working with Robert Rodriguez on a sequel.

The Living Comic blog writes today about what may or may not be an Andy Kaufmanesque marketing campaing for the decidedly lo-fi webcomic, Scribs by Greg Galcik.

Joey Manley's Webcomics Nation service for webcomics is getting closer to an official launch. Manley wrote in the Talkaboutcomics blog that several sites are "live" for testing purposes.
