Some great new changes to Ryan North's Project Wonderful auction ad service including two I thought I'd highlight:
1. You can bid on ad "boxes" - this means if you want an ad on Comixpedia, for example, you can bid once for the cheapest of the three PW slots here.
2. Bids by the penny below ten cents - this is good for smaller sites where you might buy an ad for 4 or 5 cents but not the previous minimum of 10 cents.
Second - I'm putting sometime in focusing on the webcomics encyclopedia at comixpedia.org to try and improve it and make it more valuable to the Comixpedia community. I think I've sorted out how to run Project Wonderful ads on it now - they're fairly unobtrusive and should help bring in a few more dollars to the Comixpedia coffers so I can start paying people to work on things around here again. If you're interested go to Comixpedia.org now.

Welcome to 2007! Hope you're all recovering well from any end-of-2006 festivities.
- January's cover art comes from the creator of Wally & Osborne and all-around CSS/Design Consultant to Comixpedia and the Stars, Tyler Martin! (We're doing something slightly different with the cover art code this month - if you see anything weird on your browser could you post here or send me an email with OS/Browser and Screen resolution? Thanks!)
- Before we launch into the January issue don't forget to check out the December Year In Review issue - we had a fairly full slate of articles last month.
- If you're a talented writer, penciler, inker, letterer, colorist, etc. looking for a job, ComicJobz.com is aiming to be the Monster.com of comics.

- Digital Strips (and I'm sure some others) read this Irregular Webcomic strip as a farewell from creator David Morgan-Mar, but with another update today and a "Welcome to the Fifth Year of Irregular Webcomic" message on the site, maybe this webcomic isn't over yet.
