For a limited time only, all remaining stock on The Ultimate Melonpool, Melonpool II: The Voyage Home, Melonpool III: A New Hope and Melonpool V: This Island Earth have been dramatically reduced in price (regularly $19.95, now only $7 plus shipping)!
This is an effort for Steve Troop to regain control of his linen closet as well as get these hi-quality collections into the hands of fans that might otherwise not be able to afford them. All books come signed by the author and can be bought through the Melonpool website.

You really can't get much geekier than Everyone Loves Eric Raymond which is about "the real lives of Richard Stallman, Eric Raymond and Linus Torvalds as accurately as comedically possible. Their real lives, which include living together in a house, with dynamic dimensions, without their wives. Also, they always wear the same clothes. And donâ€™t move their eyes much."
If you know the references being made in the strip it's funny, but if not it's just a bunch of fat old guys talking nonsense. The (short) archives start here.

Aaron Hildebrandt notices an interesting trend involving webcomic alter-egos and real life romance.
Madreric reports his webcomic, Madgoth got accepted by Keenspot but reading his blog post it sounds like he's talking about
Keenspace Comic Genesis.
And one more Comicon photo set - this one from the Little Gamers "1 Love Tour" of California which includes way more than just Comicon (Comicon photos start here). Looking at Mr. Madsen I'm thinking Jason Lee for the movie version.
