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:

An interview with Mark Mekkes in his role as chairman of the WCCAs, now in its seventh year. There were a lot of changes leading into this year's program and hopefully, this interview helps to shed some light on things.

The first installment of a new column on web manga by Brigid Alverson. Brigid already blogs about manga at her own site MangaBlog and our good friends at Digital Strips. At Comixpedia, she'll be rounding up the good stuff -- and telling you what to avoid as well.

...YAFGC is alive in ways that other strips aren’t; that’s partially because it’s drawn in pencil and has the raw energy of a sketch, but also because Rich Morris has the talent of a classic Disney animator; he manages, with a few quick strokes of his pencil, to bring people to life so that the way they stand, hips cocked, tells you more about them than the dialogue ever would.

I've checked the code

I've checked the frontpage html and css files and they're both pointing at the feb. cover. The comixpedia server is not the problem. It's either local (your browser cache) or your network I guess.

Anyone have any other ideas? Anyone else seeing the Feb. cover besides me? :)

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Hrm

You didn't change the background image in /themes/sands_css/win.css, only style.css. Perhaps that's the problem?

Hmm!

Let me check that! Thanks for the suggestion.

Yup (sheepish grin)...

I forgot that I had to create a separate style sheet for IE last month - I did it all largely trial and error (with expert troubleshooting help from Tyler).

Hopefully that fixes it for Kelly and others.

I see the cover now.

I use IE only to look at Comixpedia (and the rare broken website that can't be seen in anything but IE) because looking at it with Firefox was too painful.

But I just looked at the site with Firefox (which I haven't done in quite a while) and it looks reasonable now, so that's cool too.

Cover

X, you realize the cover is still the January cover?

The link to the "full" cover works, and it looks nifty, but it's not up on the front page...

Refresh your cache?

It works for me on several computers at different locations. Is anyone else not able to see the "collectives" cover right now?
