Fetus-X creator Eric Millikin will soon be blogging for a major media news group. He says "Well, my webcomics-and-vampire-killers-who-mail-cat-poop-sandwiches-to-courthouses blog is ready for beta testing. They've built an entirely new Cold Fusion blogging engine for this, and so I need people to test out the comments system, the category system, look for busted links, measure how hard it rocks, whatever. If you're interested in getting a sneak peak at this project as well making sure it's only bizare in intentional ways, then leave me your e-mail either here or at eric-at-fetusx-dot-com."

CBLDF: "When Judge Larry Salmon entered the courtroom shortly after 9 AM Monday, prosecutors declared the case nolle prosse, meaning that the charges that were to go to trial this week have been dismissed. Prosecutors are re-filing under a new accusation alleging that Lee handed Alternative Comics #2 to a six-year-old minor and his nine-year-old brother, instead of solely to the nine-year-old, as has been previously, and repeatedly, declared.

CBLDF: "On April 3, CBLDF defendant Gordon Lee will appear before the court in Rome, Georgia to begin his trial on two remaining misdemeanor counts of 'Distribution of Harmful to Minors Material.' ... Mr. Lee's case first came to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund early in 2005 following his arrest for accidentally distributing 'Alternative Comics #2,' a Free Comic Book Day edition, to a minor. The comic book at issue included a segment from Nick Bertozzi's upcoming graphic novel 'The Salon' depicting Georges Braque's first meeting with Pablo Picasso, in which Picasso is shown painting in the nude. The comic depicted no sexual situations."
