A couple of housekeeping notes. First - you have until midnight tonight to enter the DEAD EYES OPEN comic book giveaway contest. I'm a bit shocked I've had only 4 entries so far. With five prizes that makes it great for the current entrants but we've got over a 1000 registered members and more than 10 times that number of casual vistors on most days. Sure to enter you've got to send in something for our ZOMBIE Webcomic JAM but it can be as good or simple a sketch as you want. Just send me a link to a URL to zombie @ comixpedia.com before midnite tonight.
Second our August issue is scheduled to start on August 15th but we'll be providing daily news updates on the site as usual. We have a great piece of cover art for August from Paul Taylor that I'll put up later today.
Third, I've knocked our sponsorship rates back down again (these are the image + text ads that run down the side of the site) so 1 week is $15 and 1 month is $55. Please be sure to check out our current sponsors: Marilith, an action-adventure webcomic by Sean Lindsay and Fantasy Realms, a digital graphic novel of high fantasy by Garnder and Geyer.
UPDATE: Battlegate is also a current sponsor - please check it out! We also love our banner advertisers! On that note, the banner campaign for Sordid City Blues just ended. Great banner and one of the best relationship comics you can read on the web or off.

The Washington Webtoonists are meeting up again, as it's the first Tuesday of the month... and that's kinda their thing. Click "read more" for location and time.
Xerexes: For what it's worth I'll (most likely) be there again as well.

In a move that boggles the mind of most sane people, Sporkman has returned to the web once again, on a Monday through Friday schedule that's likely to kill its creator. All the same, Sporkman's new adventures began on July 25th.
