I once wrote a (very short-lived) column for an alternative paper. My first piece was about high-heeled shoes - mostly because I was supposed to be writing about pop culture from a female perspective. The column was good - still one of my favorite pieces of writing, actually - and the second one was all right - about how my neighborhood was like the one in the X-Files where the monster comes out to eat you if your mailbox is wrong (there's no monster - just the "Neighborhood Commitee" -eep!).

With the success of web-comics site Modern Tales and several of its offshoots, publisher/editor Joey Manley contacted contributor Lea Hernandez about beginning a new branch to attract a different and new audience. Hernandez became the editor of the new line making its debut March 31. The line, Girlamatic, features an eclectic mix of both creators and comics.

Girlamatic has already raised its share of controversy. Now it's nearing it's launch date as the newest subscription site of Modern Tales. Before it launches, check out the work of three artists who will have comics on the site:
Bite Me by Dylan Meconis;
Return to Sender by Vera Brosgol; and
Strings of Fate by Jen Wang.
