In the past, while Modern Evil has been proud to be home to the writings of other people (blogs, Poetry, Fiction, Reviews, etc...), it has only ever hosted comics by its co-founders Iain Hamp and Teel McClanahan III. Beginning in September, this is going to change. This means free hosting at Modern Evil for comics selected, and potentially some income for creators as Modern Evil also launches its new "Premium" section of exclusive material in September, available for pennies via BitPass.

From the Talkaboutcomics forums:
Good afternoon. I'm Shaenon Garrity, webcartoonist and Modern Tales goodwill ambassador. I write and draw "Narbonic" on Moderntales.com, I write "Li'l Mell" on Girlamatic.com, I sporadically write "Trunktown" on Serializer.net, and I am always right.
I come to you today because I wish to submit a comic to Graphic Smash, an upcoming Modern Tales sister site devoted to action/adventure comics, and I need an artist.

Starting this week, anxious readers can purchase access to a new desktop picture featuring the artwork to the upcoming fourth chapter of The Circle Weave. The artwork for the new cover features a mysteriously glowing image of Rowan, sword raised in preparation for battle. Behind him can be seen the image of a large, tangled mass emerging from the misty wood.
The new picture is available at http://www.circleweave.com/bricabrac/desktops.shtml, but unlike the other desktop pictures there, this one is not available for free. Series creator Indigo Kelleigh has chosen to make the download for each individual screen resolution available for the cost of a five-cent 'donation', made possible thanks to the new micropayment solution called BitPass (http://www.bitpass.com).
