ModernTales.com headlines Eddie Campbell in an
Australian invasion across July!
July 7, 2003 -- Eddie Campbell, the illustrator of the award-winning graphic novel From Hell, will be appearing in Modern Tales Longplay as part of a month-long focus on Australian creators. The writer and artist of the critically acclaimed Alec: How to be an Artist and head ego behind the eclectic EgoMania magazine will be joined by writer Daren White for 'The Playwright', a series of short stories about "love, lust, fertility and the importance of quality footwear".
The July issue of Longplay -- launching July 7 -- will also showcase work by twenty Australian creators, making it the first time that ModernTales has focused attention on a single country outside of the US -- taking advantage of the truly international 'stage' of the World Wide Web.

That's the question. Which are more ideal for webcomics, or is a mix good?
I submit my own work, where I have a hand-drawn strip but is scanned in such a way that the linework is gray-ish. I built a color scheme off of that, basically.
So which do you think is preferable? Or is there a valid preference at all?

Modern Tales, the leading provider of subscription-based webcomics, is proud to announce
that its subscriber-only anthology series Longplay is changing from a monthly to a weekly schedule.
'It just makes sense,' says Longplay editor Joe Zabel. 'I mean, you serve a banquet one course at a time--you don't put the plates on the table all at once. We've been serving a banquet of comics every month, but it's gotten to be too much for people, and so some of our best comics get neglected.'
