No, not the current war in Iraq. Think 1812 and Canada.

I think it's a law that webcomic sites have to mention PvP once a month...
- Scott Kurtz announced he'll be at CAPE this year. (Check out CAPE details here.)
- The entire first issue of Kurtz's second comicbook, Truth, Justin and the American Way is now online.
- And I was at the bookstore last night - in the GN section it was carrying Image's books collecting Kurtz's PvP comic book series. The third edition (collecting issues 13-18 I think) has a foreword from Eric "Websnark" Burns which maybe Eric mentioned repeatedly, but I hadn't been aware of it.

Jeff Rowland reads the Terms of Service for MySpace.com and comes up with a TOS of his own. (Thanks to Lore for the link)
I've never hung out with the DC Conspiracy group (DC cartoonists) but using a bar as a space to create mini-comics: awesomely geeky!
Tom Spurgeon is tracking the press coverage of TCJ's story that Charles Brownstein was the perpetrator of the alleged assault on Taki Soma. UPDATE: CBR's Rich Johnson has some comments on the case and posts a statement from Charles Brownstein. (There's also a long thread on the matter at their forums.) Newsarama also has an article on it with a link to the redacted polic report.
A few recent user blog posts I wanted to draw to everyone's attention:
- WilliamG wrote a post on why longform comics are an odd fit for the web;
- AlexanderD wrote about Tim Tylor joining his FullStory site: a directory of completed webcomic stories;
- I wrote about Comixpedia's traffic compared to some other blogs and news sites; and
- Keith Quinn wrote about the one year anniversary of his webcomic Local Heroes.
