to Be Free All Day May 7, 2005

As a sort of unofficial tip of the hat to Free Comic Book Day, and to celebrate our recent recovery from a catastrophic server crash,’s archives will be free to all visitors all day on Saturday, May 7, 2005, starting at midnight Eastern time.

If you haven’t yet checked out the great comics on the site (including Jenn Manley Lee’s amazing Dicebox, Jason Thompson’s creepy teen-angst drorror — horror and drama, get it? — The Stiff, the Narbonic spin-off Li’l Mell, or the too-cute-for-words Jeepers, just to name a few, now’s your chance!

Girlamatic is an award-winning webcomics publication featuring lots of comics that aren’t specifically targetted at male readers, and that, you know, kind of sort of are mostly intended for female audiences. But guys are welcome or whatever. I guess that’s the politically-correct way to put it. Or, as Girlamaticker Lisa Jonte puts it — “Come for the cooties, stay for the comics!”

Subscriptions cost $2.95/month or $29.95/year and include heaping helpings of our eternal gratitude.
