The Comics Reporter has an overview and a lot of links to the recent TokyoPop restructuring.
JUSTIFY MY DEAD TREE HYPE
This looks cool - Mitch Clem is doing some comics for a print series:
I have about fifty more of these fully inked. It's a new series I've been working on called "Something Great", which will be my first foray into creating a direct-to-print comic strip series (as opposed to a webcomic, which I already have too many of). Five per issue have been running in Razorcake, so you'll see those too once new issues come out, as usual. Otherwise, patience is your best hope for ridiculousness.
Chris Williams listens to comics podcasts so you don't have to... unless you really want to!

The recent ROFLcon brought together a wacky ensemble of Internet-famous folks including a number of webcomickers. Jeffrey Rowland's OVERCOMPENSATING today details the meeting between himself and Joey Comeau of A Softer World.
Other bittids from the event include an interview with the dudes from Cyanide and Happiness, and a panel on Internet fame-i-ness with Ryan North (Din-O-saur!) and Randal Monroe (kxyz).

Holy shoot! Comics for Kilimanjaro was a big success! I guess that annually throwing away garbage bags full of my original art had caused me to devalue how interested people would be in them.... lesson learned.
Well, there are only 5 envelopes left, so grab them fast if you want them!
A envelope full of art to anywhere in North America, $5:
A envelope full of art and presents to anywhere in the world, $10:

This summer, I'm gonna climb Mount Kilimanjaro. My sister will be there on a research project studying hyenas, so I'm gonna meet up with her, and the two of us are gonna make it to the top, or die trying. But it seems you can't climb without a registered guide. And one of those is gonna cost us a pretty penny.

The winner for the worst joke is everyone else.
