November's cover is from Shaenon Garrity, the creator of Narbonic (and several other comics). We will have the first stories for the November issue up this Sunday so check for those on Monday morning.

We'd also like to thank continuing sponsors, the books, The Physics of Superheroes and An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, the 8 Films to Die For film festival, TBS' Very Funny Ads, and the webcomics Alma Mater, Things Change, A Pirate's Life For Me, O''Deer, I See You, Gunnerkrigg Court, Devil Water, Family Bones, and The Flowfield Unity.
