The deadline for early exhibitor registration at this year's Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, Ore. has been extended by a full month, allowing a greater number of small press, independent, and professional comics creators a chance to snag a table at the extremely low price of only $10 for a half table, or $20 for a full table.

It's a bit of work to do a whole alphabet, but if you'd like to make your own font, BitFontMaker will let you design your own and download the file to use on your PC or Mac.

From the SPACE-NOT-SPOT department: Artists, authors, and an admin will be invading Washington, DC this July 9th in a general meeting open for all 'Space members and webcomic authors. The genesis for the idea came from this forum thread and final details are here.

The DC Webtoonists have schemed up another gathering of mass proportions. OK, maybe not mass proportion, but still a proportion of grand excitement. With a new meet up spot, this time in Maryland!

I hope the ads at Comixpedia, particularly the ones for webcomics, often lead you, the readers, to discover new webcomics that you enjoy. That even happens for me (and I already read A LOT of webcomics) and Marilith by Krazy Krow is one I had never checked out before, but really enjoyed reading this week.
It's the story of Marilith Millions, an assassin, and her sidekick (who in a Stockholm syndrone twist was originally kidnapped by Marilith) and their efforts to escape the law and a crazed adversary named Valentino. They're a bit like the evil anti-Dynamic Duo. It's actually even more complicated then that, but Krow keeps the plot clear enough and does a fantastic job balancing plot with well-choreographed action. My only complaint is that Marilith and Valentino look a little too similar, but maybe there'll be a reason for that down the road. Actually my other complaint is after reading the archives, I now have to wait for new updates just like every other reader of Marilith.

In the NOT A WEBCOMIC dept. this morning be sure to check out two links in your free time: FIRST, a two years too late version of the ALL YOUR BASE BELONG TO US nonsense, only this version is newly animated and scored to Bohemian Rhapsody which is... different.
SECOND, a long but fascinating article on the first great 'zine of the web: Suck. The Suck feature, "Filler" featured some of the first webcomics published ever (art by Terry Colon and words by Heather Havrilesky).

This week at Digital Strips we interview Christian and Madsen, the creators of Little Gamers. This is a daily gag strip featuring iconicly designed characters cracking on video games, movies, webcomics, and pop culture in general all with an attitude that betrays the otherwise "cute" look to their strip. During the interview they discuss how they got started, art for art's sake vs. art for commerce, and their opinions of other webcomics.
