Benjamin Birdie, creator of Modern Tales' Genre City and the breakout small press hit Kevin Analog, launches !Pass - an online collective of several pieces of sequential narrative, both in print and online. Designed to offer almost daily content to readers (leaving Saturdays for golf, fishing, and the occasional Toblerone), it features his Modern Tales favorite Genre City: Plan B, an all new work of fiction that also takes place in Genre City, Lonely Information, and a lighthearted look at America's Soft Drink Underground: The Kings Of Pop.

Webcomics have been receiving a surprising amount of mainstream media attention this year. The Washington Post column, which was reprinted in several other papers, and the G4techtv feature on the WCCA both painted webcomics in a fairly favorable light. But when the New York Times critic Sarah Boxer's article on Infinite canvases and webcomics was published in August, it was not perceived as an endorsement of webcomics by most. It immediately gave rise to some furious discussion, most of which focused on whether the article was well-researched or not.
The Pen to Web Tutorial is a very basic resource for starting webcartoonists, covering the process of converting your pen-and-paper lineart into a fully-rendered comic strip using recent versions of Adobe Photoshop.
