Okay after a random drawing of names from a hat - here's your Blind Date II pairings. (Click read more to find out the pairings)
The rules are simple: the two of you brainstorm out and create a comic in the spirit of Valentines Day. Define "spirit of" however you want (we're not going to be as strict as the WCCA is with the Romantic Comics category).
We will start posting submissions on Valentines Day (February 14th) on a first-in, first-up basis and keep posting them as they come in through the month of February. I'd prefer to post the comics at frightnight.org to prevent future link-rot, but I can link to something posted elsewhere too. Either way email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com with the essential information. The absolute deadline for turning in Blind Date II comics will be February 25th.
Also try and link up with your partner early next week - if you have trouble getting connected or someone quits talk to me next week and we'll try to sort something else out for you.

It's been too long since 2004's Blind Date so let's do it again this year. We had some discussion over format for it and it was divided so let's do the original format again (I'll use the Border Walker idea for another event later this year). I've posted the archives of Blind Date 2004 at Frightnight.org if you want to check out the first edition.
The format is simple - by signing up you agree to work on a comic with a randomly selected partner (hence the "blind date" part ). The finished comic gets posted at Blind Date II during the week of February 19th.
You can sign-up for Blind Date II starting now through January 26th. Either email me at xerexes At comixpedia Dot coM or post a reply to this post. Include your name, your comic and whether you are an artist, writer or artist/writer (the only exception to the randomness will be that we will make sure not to pair up writer-writer or artist-artist).
We'll pair up partners and send out pairings around January 28th.
We'll being posting finished webcomics for the event the week of February 19th.
Please ask questions here as well so everyone can see the answers.

- Concerned has wrapped up. This really is a hilarious parody of the video game Half-Life 2. Much like Tom Stoppard's famous play Rosencranz and Guildenstern Are Dead zeroes in on minor characters from Hamlet, Concerned follows the adventures of a new, seemingly minor character, Gordon Frohman, who weaves through the plot of Half Life 2 without disturbing the official narrative of the game. Creator Christopher Livingston put in a year and a half into this project and within what he set out to do, I'd say he succeeded fantastically.
- Creator Neil Gaiman has some advice for creators on how to handle their work in their wills.
- Webcomics In Print has an interview with Ali Graham, creator of Housd.
- UGO has an interview with Dan Goldman, member of the collective, Act-I-Vate.

- Former Comixpedia contributor T Campbell has a new site called One Simple Ad which is really just that simple. Read more about it and why T started it here.
- Websnark and Scrubbo take Wikipedia to task for more dumb decisions regarding which webcomics make the cut for inclusion in the Wikipedia.
- The Comics Reporter links to a story about a Harvard University student cartoonist who was fired from the paper for plagerism. This looks like a pretty clear cut case of copying. It's not always that clear though - see this recent post from Tom Tomorrow about similarities between one of his comics and a recent Fox Trot.
