Tom Spurgeon reports that Dark Horse may or may not be pulling a book version of Planet Beer from cartoonist Brian Sendelbach. Sendelbach apparently sent out an email asking for pre-orders to avert a pull of the book (scheduled for March) by Dark Horse. Dark Horse in its response doesn't seem to agree exactly.
Sendelbach's comic is called Smell of Steve and appears online and in some weeklies. I have no idea about Dark Horse pulling books or whatnot but whatever email Sendelbach wrote was brilliant P.R. -- he's got mentions of the coming book in The Comics Reporter and other sites -- plus a solid plug from Internet Jesus himself.
Eric MONSTER Millikin has a new website headquarters at ericmonster.com. I caught up with him via email to talk about the new website, painting zombie portraits and other comics projects, and of course, Monkey Day.

Another webcomic creator hits the Googleplex - I finally got to watch through this and it was interesting to hear Chris Onstad talk about his work and the flexibility of the web.

Let's stick with the advertising theme this week. I may have been too harsh on BlogAds yesterday - I lowered the prices and had a new ad submitted within hours. Hmm... Anyhow, new features for the Project Wonderful advertising platoform -- categories for publishers ad boxes and infinite bids for advertisers.
The Reboot webcomic is over. I know nothing about any incarnation of Reboot so someone else will have to tell us if the webcomic did justice to the cartoon or whether there's a big screen remake with Eddie Murphy coming out next year.
NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT
Lyle Masaki has an overview of webcomics with gay themes and characters. It's a good article which covers a number of really good comics out there. (h/t El Journalista!)
