A big thanks to everyone who is advertising with Comixpedia right now including these three great webcomics:
- [UPDATED: We are also now running ads from Things Change by Derik Badman]
- The Front by Jerzy Drozd which is action-packed comic goodness is heading towards its dramatic conclusion.
- A Pirate's Life For Me by Iain Hamp is a comic about a reality tv show where contestants compete to be a pirate captain.
- O'deer by Joseph Grevelli is about what Santa's reindeers do the rest of the year. Yuletide yaks abound!
We're also being sponsored this month by Comedy Central's Freak Show which is a new show from David Cross (everyone knows who David Cross is right?) and John Benjamin (he had something to do with Dr. Katz)
This year we've been running the Comixpedia sites on a dedicated box so our expenses are a big step up from past years. So please check out our sponsors - they're often very cool people and/or products and by checking them out you help keep Comixpedia free and running (fairly) smoothly and me from losing too much money (which makes Mrs. X happy)!

Hey check it out - Hampton Yount of Rob and Elliot is doing some standup comedy this Thursday (9/21) at Wiseacres in Mclean, Virginia. The price of admission is ten dollars and it starts at 9 PM. I'd go but it's way after my kids' bedtime and when they're cranky they tend to heckle entertainers mercilessly (it's a gift!).

I just wanted to post a short update on Lea Hernandez who lost everything in a housefire - thankfully her family was safe. She's back online and it looks like humanity (especially the comic-creatin' Texas variety) gets some good karma this week for helping out the Diva Lea in a time of need. Check out the Cape Day 2.5 Benefit for the Hernandezes.
I haven't heard otherwise so I believe you can still help out by
