- Shaenon Garrity may not agree with me that Chris Muir's recent Day By Day comic is offensive but in her blog she entertainingly lays out the argument for why it is "the worst damn comic in the world"!
- The Silent Penultimate Panel Watch (a pretty funny concept for a blog actually) steps aside from its normal fare of spotting silent comic panels to pitch an all webcomics-in-print alt-alt paper idea. I've heard this idea before but I've never heard rumblings of anyone actually running with it. In a way, however, the parody news newspaper The Onion is, as it expands its paper edition into new markets.
