Writer Wiz Rollins who graced humanity with his minimalist webcomic, BAD SHAPE, is now the new co-writer of Yirmumah.
I've been writing Yirmumah myself for over a year since the original co-writer split in October 2005, and since I've gotten busy with other projects, it's been hard delivering it all on my own. It's always great to collaborate with talented writers, and Wiz feels like he was born to write Yirmumah. See today's Thanksgiving strip, "Dirty Bird".

Joe and Monkey creator Zach Miller told me after I won the Comic Book Challenge contest last summer with Hero by Night, that he was going to have a friend he knew who makes rings, forge me a custom "H" ring. It was the "H" ring I had made out of super sculpey that helped put my pitch over the top I think. (the hero's powers come from the ring)- The new ring arrived today, and Zach Miller may now be listed as one of the coolest and thoughtful webcomic creators out there today. Here are some photos.

"ORIGIN" storyline for his webcomic Yirmumah. At 61 pages in, the first two chapters have featured, Hoboes, Bikers, Bibles, Witches and much more. Also, cold beer.
Come read what Comics101's Scott Tipton calls "...smart, daring and compelling. Really strong work." and what other critics call "one of the best comics Iâ€™ve read or seen in any medium".

I didn't, but apparently Adventures of Spawn is online here. I'm not to hip on the layout, but it is interesting to see comic book giants slowly coming to webcomics. It looks like this effort is primarily to sell a toy line, but still, it's very interesting...
Makes me wonder if the long time webcomic veterans couldn't better help these established publishers usher their works onto the web in a better manner.
