I have a review up of the first print collection of the webcomic Quitting Time. I'm not at San Diego's thing this year -- and from what I read, perhaps it will be LA's thing next year? Might as well move it to Las Vegas then...
- Today is the 3000th Sheldon strip. Congrats to Dave Kellett!
- Today is the 400th Capes & Babes strip. Congrats to Chris Flick!
- El Santo points out a very funny comic made by Emmy C. and Anthony “Nedroid” Clark called Lizzy.
- Tauhid Bondia is back with a choose-your-own-adventure-style webcomic called Epicsplosion. (h/t Digital Strips)

Just to lead off - PAX pox is on the loose... and in a funny guest Penny Arcade comic from Fox Trot cartoonist Bill Amend.
Farewell Scary Go Round! A longer goodbye message from creator John Allison on his blog here. After reading the actual ending, I have no idea what's in store in his next comic -- which happily, I believe, kicks off on Monday.
Randall Munroe has a book coming out! xkcd: volume 0 will be released in the xkcd store next week. And Munroe will be on a limited book tour to support it. (Also today's xkcd? I wonder how you'd have to tweak Ender's Game in the blog/tweet/etc world of today? I mean part of its storyline basically reads "1. Blog; 2. ????; 3. World Domination!" Anyhow - another brilliant comic from Munroe.)
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BLOGS
Art Patient rounds up lots of webcomic reviews and interviews here.
Saw this on Sean Kleefeld's site - a video about fan culture with a whole lot of interviews of interesting folks including Scott Kurtz, Jerry Holkins, Mike Krahulik, Ryan Sohmer, and Lar deSouza.

Good morning Internet! Swine flu even at PAX?! (see Mike/Gabe's message) -- nice to see that the Penny Arcade crew is broadcasting useful information via the website and encouraging everyone to take care of themselves. That show seemed huge this year. I am looking forward to my probably futile hopes to attend PAX East (futile because something always comes up to deflect my physical travels much like that damn leprechaun and his stale box of marshmallows and grains).
Rick Marshall scores an interview with Harvey Pekar about his new webcomic project. How cool is that?!
A lovely interview with the talented Kate Beaton (no! you have not yet read enough interviews with Beaton this year!! And... there WILL BE MORE! This Nostradamous predicts...)
Brigid Alverson gives a very good review to the first print collection of Skin Horse by Shaenon Garrity and some dude (Jeffrey C. Wells: just kidding!!!!!!!).
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
Met up with the Washtington Webcomics crew last night: Rob Balder (still erfing the world); Chris Impink (um gravitating the fragile... hmm ), Chris Flick (caping the babes? okay this nickname scheme isn't working out all that well) and just met Joe Zuniga who does the relatively new comic Made Up.

A few interesting news bytes this morning:
1) Webdesigner Depot spotlighted 40 comic strips for web designers, and PC Weenies is prominently featured. Woohoo!
2) Bob and Shari make their appearance over at Capes & Babes today, courtesy of cartoonist Chris Flick. Be sure to read the hilarious blog post after you read the comic.

This comic went through several revisions as well, not from a plot perspective - but from a staging perspective. If I recall correctly, Bob appears in todayâ€™s Capes & Babes comic, written and drawn by the mighty, mighty Chris Flick. Chris gave me the heads-up, and a sneak preview and I think youâ€™re gonna dig it.

Some webcomic stories floating on the 'tubes today:
Chris Flick explains how webcartoonists can use Twitter. Twitter seems to be a decent tool for promotion but I think it has also is a background communication tool for many cartoonists who want the feel of a "virtual" bullpen despite working at home or alone.
Tom Spurgeon has some details on the definitely-happening MOCCA Festival this coming summer. Key though is that exhbition registration is going on now and will wrap up this month.

Who's that dashing, distinguished man doing a cameo in today's installment of Capes 'N' Babes? Big thanks to my pal Chris Flick for a very funny strip!
If you haven't checked out Chris' marvelous work, be sure to bookmark his site. He hits a number of comic-book and comic-book-culture themes that you're bound to get a charge out of. And his linework is pretty easy on the eyes, too, no?
Now, if you'll kindly excuse me, I have to go register randylugar.com. Bow-chicka-WOW-wow...
