Interviews, Manga and the Monday Morning News (UPDATED)

Frank "Damonk" Cormier and Meaghan QuinnDig that new cover from Frank "Damonk" Cormier and Meaghan Quinn! Our February issue is focused on webcomic collectives and we've got a lot of great articles on tap for it. This morning I've posted the first two articles for this month's issue:
