Your post-World Cup comics report (start your planning for Brasil 2014 now!).
iWEBCOMICS: Comics Worth Reading has a round-up of some of the digital comics reader programs out there now. She picks Comixology as the industry leader to date, based largely on its embrace of handhelds and wider selection of comics.
ALL THE HYPE THAT FITS
- Chachic plugs the webcomic Stuff No One Told Me.
- Tom Spurgeon plugs a bunch of webcomics from Ty Templeton.
AROUND THE WORLD IN

- Robot6 links to Bea AD, an exquisite corpse webcomic, which is a fancy-shmancy way of saying it's a webcomic group jam with a few extra rules.
- The Daily Cartoonist links to a report that John Kovalic is bringing back Dork Tower and Kovalic add some details in a comment there.

Angela Melick, creator of the great webcomic Wasted Talent, just got married. Congrats! Wasted Talent is a very funny auto-bio journal comic about a woman engineer -- I think it's only gotten better as Melick got out of school and into a job; and despite a full-time job, her cartooning chops have continued to improve.
I've been meaning to try and get an interview with Angela and her now husband. In addition, to being a great comic, Trevor moved Wasted Talent over to the CMS Drupal -- a great implementation and I'm hoping to get some more insight into how he and she planned and implemented the move over to a CMS that still is pretty foreign to webcomic sites (it is the CMS that ComixTalk runs on).
