Not GBuy, but Google Checkout is the name of Google's new payment service. While difficult to speculate in what it will mean for webcomic businesses, the fees are lower than Paypal's which certainly is one argument in favour of Google.

- The Oni Talent Search has been mentioned earlier, but I can't remember if we've linked to this interview about it with Oni Editor in Chief James Lucas Jones.
- The Women Webcomicker Grant Nan has also been mentioned before, but now it has stirred up a bit of a ruckus. The Comic Book Resorces forum seems to be the center of it. I must admit that I didn't think this grant would cause any controversy, but then again by internet standards this may not even qualify for that.
- Flight volume 3 has barely hit the stores and planning is already underway for volume 4. Newsarama has a first look and it appears that the Pants Press Crew is making a comeback in this volume.

- The Pulse interviews Raina Tegelmeier on her upcoming Baby-sitters Club graphic novel published by Scholastic.
- Athena Voltaire is getting some more press, this time a preview at the Pulse.
- And yet another Scott McCloud interview. Probably doesn't provide that much you haven't read in the previous ones though.
- Newsarama's All Ages Reads reviews Dreamland Chronicles, a comic that began in print and then moved to the web. Oh and its 3D rendered.

- The Webcomic Examiner has a huge interview with Scott Mccloud covering all sort of topics, including, Zot, Making Comics and micropayments.
- Newsarama has an interview with Eisner winner Brian Fies, creator of the "webcomic gone print" Mom's Cancer. Fies is also a guest at this years San Diego Comicon. In his blog he talks about his schedule and mentions that he will participate in two panels, one focusing solely on him and the other is entitled "Developing Your Webcomic". Apparently the latter is part of a three day ComiCon series on webcomics.
- And finally a non-interview item. Roleplaying games have been quick to adapt to ebook publishing, but now they may be looking at this alternative for publishing comics as well. Drivethrucomics.com, which directs you to drivethrurpg.com, is offering comics in pdf format, with copying and printing removed.
