Here is a full list of all the wonderful artists contributing to Serializer. It includes Patrick Farley with "Apocamon," Renee French with "micrographica," Sam Henderson with "The Magic Whistle," and Emily Horne and Joey Comeau with "A Softer World."
Publisherâ€™s Weekly refers to many of serializerâ€™s artists as â€œart comics favoritesâ€ and â€œcritical darlings.â€ Londonâ€™s Sunday Times has called serializer â€œhigh art,â€ and The New York Times thought some of our comics were â€œWell drawn and funny.â€ The Comics Journal found some Serializer comics to be â€œdaring, entertainingly perverseâ€ while The Guardian found artwork on serializer that â€œthreatens to seriously tamper with oneâ€™s smug equilibrium.â€

Joystiq, a popular videogame blog has a weekly poll on its readers favorite webcomics. Naturally these are all gamer webcomics but I was surprised to see in the most recent poll that Press Start To Play is essentially tied with Penny Arcade in popularity and another webcomic I hadn't read before, Fanboys In Love, was in third place.
Andy Bell (Creatures In My Head) is having a launch party for his Zliks toys on Friday 13th in New York City.
Good news at the Fortress of Dumbrellatude: R Stevens is looking for help with his t-shirt n' swag shipping empire.
Exciting tasks include folding t-shirts, filling orders, counting things, moderate computer use and discussing the paranormal at length. Perks include being away from the general public and occasional free goodies. Also, money.
We're closing in on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and like others I am thinking about giving it a try this year...
Funny, but this was exactly like a lot of my sports practices as a kid. Only for baseball...
Ted Rall talks up and talks to webcomics with attitude for Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists. It's a great addition to the ongoing Attitude anthology series that pays some well-deserved attention to webcomics.

Eric's been mentioning that he was getting a high-profile blogging gig; now he's officially off and running with a new blog "Bizarro News" at the Detroit News website.
The Detroit News is the 11th most read newspaper in the U.S., with a circulation of about three-quarters of a million, and is the 10th most read newspaper website according to Wikipedia. The Detroit News is owned by Media News Group, which also owns the Denver Post, L.A. Daily News, San Jose Mercury News, etc. If I get fired from this gig, it will be the largest newspaper I've ever been fired from.

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."

The other shoe just dropped at last. Over at Whispered Apologies, Alexander Danner has written the canon version of the comic featuring the Deadmouse art I chose when I was writing a contribution there.
There was an odd mix-up. Normally, a pool of writers choose a piece of art from the submissions archive, and create a comic from it. Unbeknownst to me, Alexander had already made a comic with that art when I sent mine to Ryan, and Alexander's strip was queued to load next.
