After a long journey into the woods to track down the legendary Green Knight, Jodoque will at last confront him in the first of a series of climactic scenes in the epic, year-long Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan storyline the Rite of Serfdom!

Buzzcomics is a new website hosting forums and top 100 vote lists for webcomics. It is also launching an award for webcomics (limited, it appears to webcomics signed up with the site) to be nominated by committee (again, no details on how the committee will be selected or by whom) and than to be voted on by the creators of webcomics listed on the Buzz Top Vote list. It also will limit consideration to webcomics receiving less than 10,000 hits per day (they may have meant pages or visitors since hits generally counts all elements of webpage separately in the total) in an effort to focus the award on "smaller comics."
There is no information provided yet on dates for the awards or any stage of the process. It is possible, however, to submit a webcomic for consideration by the nominating committee now.
