I don't know about you but whenever I'm at a comics event I wind up with all kinds of cards and other swag with URLs on them. I also have a mess of an office at home which I'm struggling to clean up right now. So one of my every-so-often kitchen-sink-and-everything posts - if you've read any of these let me know what you think! Thanks.
- Lore appears to be an actively updating webcomic - no idea when I picked up the card for it.
- I think I bought a couple of copies of Sea Freak at last year's SPX.
- I have a Herman the Manatee postcard - I wonder who I could send that to!
- Odysseus The Rebel - a webcomic by Steven Grant and Scott Bieser.
- I have definitely checked out the BPM preview by Paul Sizer - great art, pretty interesting story.
- Summ Publications has a few webcomcs, mostly print though. News blog here.
- Couldn't find a website of it but here's a review of the comic The Common Bond.
- Broken from Hollow Point Studio. Website looks likes it's broken but here's a MySpace profile for it.
- I met Jeff Crowther at my first SPX back in '03 or '04 I think. He used to do Sketchbook and he has a few other titles up at his website.
- Artist Byron Winton appears to be in the process of ditching the Urban By Design moniker.
- Thefinebergsite.com URL is kaput but there's still a profile for it on Friendster. I had no idea that Friendster still existed!
- You can still find Poorly Drawn Animals at its webcomicsnation site. Oh wait you can't - all gone :(
- You can see sample pages of two Bromide comics at its website.

Nina Paley's animated Sita Sings the Blues looks amazing (all I've had a chance to see is the trailer though) but who knows when any of us will get to see due to copyright issues with the song compositions (not the performances - they are in the public domain).Â Check out more details on Nina's blog here and watch the interview below to get the whole story. Â Actually click here for Ninia's post on her current effort to get the film out to the public -- she still needs to raise about $50,000 dollars to pay off rights holders.
