Onward Into the Webcomics Breach - UPDATED

It's Wednesday and that means it's July.  We'll have new art from Isabel Marks up top of the site there for July sometime this evening.  Also you all already read, right? Well one more reason to add it to your daily feed - that site just got a website design refresh, plus it now bills Brad Guigar as "editor-in-chief".  Good stuff!

AWARDS: There was a lot of hubbub yesterday about the nominees for the Harveys, including this story on how Gemstone publishing provided pre-filled in ballots for its employees in past years.  The Harveys, like the WCCAs, rely on counting up nominations for comics to determine the list of nominees for each category.  How many people participate is really important to the strength of the award.  I don't think the Harvey's released that information - but if anyone knows the number of votes for nominees please forward it on to me.  On this note Johanna Draper Carlson offers her tips for fixing the HarveysUPDATE: Tom Spurgeon pens an essay on why The Harvey awards should pack it in.

Also just in - Reuben Bolling just won just won the 2009 AAN Award for the Best Cartoon in Alternative Newsweeklies for his comic Tom the Dancing Bug.

INTERVIEWS: Newsarama has an interview with another Zuda cartoonist - this time it's Andy Belanger.  His comic strip Bottle of Awesome started this week.

JUSTIFY MY HYPE: James Duncan's adaptation of The Decemberists' "The Mariner's Revenge Song" is all kinds of creepy awesome.
