- Now that you mention it Tom Brazelton's webcomic alter ego does look a hell of a lot like Bart Simpson.
- The latest installment of Goblins? Surprisingly violent last panel... even if it doesn't show a lot of blood.
- A webcomic named The Happy Penis is one of the silliest goofiest comics I've read this summer. It's so happy it's just barely NSFW. (But still definitely NSFW for most of you)
- Long time webcomic creator Sylvan Migdal has (new to me anyhow) some comics up under his "Spork" label. They're about a teenage girl named Rho and it kind of alternates between real angsty-life and fantasy interludes. Not a lot up but pretty interesting. Rho is not an obviously sympathetic character but she is an interesting sketch of a character so far.
IN SWAG I JUST MIGHT BUY:
- With all of the other videogames they've turned into movies why not... Minesweeper? Check out the preview trailer here.

So Eric Burns has a handy post up detailing some thoughts on the New Fall Season at Modern Tales which marks new editor Shaenon K. Garrity's debut line-up. Here's the list of the new comics Eric hits on in his post:

Another milestone: Kris Straub's guest comic is the 500 installment of Zach Miller's Joe and Monkey webcomic. Straub also mentions that Miller's book Totally Boned is up for one of Lulu's Blooker prizes. (Erik wrote about the Blookers last October.)
The Great Outdoor Fight - wow, that's really hard to describe. But I always have a hard time describing Achewood. It's just... Achewood. Tim Tylor blogged earlier about the wiki a fan set up for this storyline.
Fleen also has more questions with Dave Kellett (Sheldon) on syndication and newspaper comics.
"What's your favorite webcomics romance?"
T Campbell asked this question of many webcartoonists. The answers were revealing.

Graphic Smash launched its second season on March 16 with an announcement of six new series. (Two more will be joining the ranks within the month, for a total of eight.) The new series include: Life on Forbez, Big Dick's Ball, Ascent, The Japanese Beetle, The Jaded, and Aces High.
Sylvan Migdal. With a first name like this, he almost had to get involved with fantasy. At SYLVAN MIGDAL'S EXTREMELY INTERESTING WEBCOMICS at www.webcomics.org, Sylvan has been pursuing such webcomics as Spork, Carface, the completed graphic novel A God's Life (slacker deities in a creation they inherited), and the current ongoing Mnemesis, an existential afterlife, and has been active with webcomics since March of 2001. He's a 19-year-old junior at The Cooper Union. He's lived in various Brooklyn apartments (with his pet dust bunnies) for 15 years, and has had his ceiling collapse on three separate occasions.
That last bit is no doubt good training for the thankless and often catastrophic job of being a web cartoonist.

The subscription site for action-adventure webcomics is set to launch September 15.
Edited by T Campbell, the site will feature thirty regular strips, including:
Die Bitch Die by Edmund Wong
Digger by Ursula Vernon
Felicity by John Troutman
Flick by Mikael Oskarsson
The Guardians by Graveyard Greg (with T Campbell) and Webtroll
Gun Street Girl by Barb Lien-Cooper and Ryan Howe
Interplanetary Grift by Jim Keplinger
Killroy and Tina by Justin Pierce
The License by Matthew Shepherd and Diego Jourdan
Mnemesis by Sylvan Migdal
Mythos and Magick by Jamie Robertson and Erin Zerbe
NonPersons by Amber "Glych" Greenlee
Ram by Brian Daniel
Rip & Teri by T Campbell and John Waltrip
Skirting Danger by Meredith Gran
She's a Nightmare by Jesse Chen
Soul Chaser Betty by Brian Babendererde (BMAN)
The Twisting by The Marvelous Patric
Vigil by Juan Navarro Navarro
Vigilante, Ho! by John Troutman and Meaghan Quinn
These strips range from urban fantasy to steampunk to Western comedy to traditional superhero to spy romance to horror to crime drama. "But they all have two things in common," says Campbell. "They all contain ass-kicking action, and they all, themselves, kick ass."
Graphic Smash has not finalized its entire lineup, and is extending its original submissions deadline. "We're keeping a few slots open for late arrivals," Campbell said, "so if you can get a couple of samples and a synopsis together and to me by September 8, you've still got a shot."
